4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma - wow! BIG piney blast that becomes VERY citrusy and caramel malty the more it sits. Great head and golden color. Huge hop blast at first, but again, the more it sits, the more balanced it becomes while still being an obvious super duper mega hop bomb. I have always considered Ruination surprisingly balanced despite the super-aggressive hopping, and RuinTen follows suit. Maybe just a little bolder than the original.

Bottle at home. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, hoppy. Flavor is very piney and citrusy hops. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter with a clear, copper color, head foam that diminished to an off white/light tan band of foam & film not too long after service, but decent, web-like cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweet and very grapefruity. The flavor’s sweetness had a light syrupy quality to it. There was hefty, rind-like, lingering hop bitterness, some alcohol warmth, and big malt to temper the hop. A big DIPA that was surprisingly drinkable,...in short sips.

For what it is--a fun, gimmick beer--it tastes great. It’s the hop bomb Stone promises it to be. But as far as beer goes, it’s not a balanced brew (which I prefer). But we need stuff like this...it takes all shapes and sizes...

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bomber poured into my ipa glass. Pours a dark Orange color with a thick fluffy off white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of pine, grapefruit, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in smell but caramely sweet also and high abv is really well masked. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with light carbonation and a bone dry finish. I am glad I was finally able to try this amazing ipa. It?s one of the best imperial ipas I?ve had to date. Pretty well balanced but hoppy. Its a hop heads dream beer for sure.

Tasted from a 22iz. Bomber. Poured a clear amber with a frothy head. Citrus hop aroma. Smooth caramel-hop taste. A bold tasting beer of substance.

Had it out of a 22oz bottle. Poured a medium whit head with no lacing. It had a very tangerine dream sweet aroma. Light hop tasting upfront with a heavy caramel aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 Drafts at Alla Spina. Pours a lightly cloudy amber with white head and decent lace. Nose of fresh pineapple juice, citrus, pine, stone fruit. Medium mouthfeel, smooth bitterness. Well concealed abv. Very fresh and delicious. Other than Enjoy by this might be my favorite Stone beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very solid DIPA. Delightful citrus hop aroma w/ a mice copper pour. Taste is citrus hops, some sweetness, & finishes a touch bitter. Still quite drinkable at the ABV - nicely done!

Pours a clear orangey red color with a pillow-like white head. It does to look like someone spit a loogie in my beer...but in a good way. The aroma is huge of piney hops but a ton of alcohol too. Trying this the day after Yulesmith, they're quite similar. There is too much alcohol noticeable. Hining the alcohol is something RR does great and I think Stone did it on the Enjoy By as well (although its been 5 months). The taste is not overly bitter but has a bit too much alcohol heat. The feel is silky smooth. A great beer on a hot day.
