4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruit, resin, flora, caramel, and a subtle nuttiness. Clear, dark copper, with a mostly lasting, off-white head. Strong, dry, and bitter, with a well rounded fruitiness redolent of apricot, pineapple, and red berries, and with a savory, nutty malt backbone. Medium-full bodied with nice carbonation, and a finish chock full of hops and malts. An enormous beer that stays clean throughout all its complexity.

Bomber pours q clear orange/copper color with modderate eggshell head and good lacing. Aroma is full of fresh tropical and citrus fruits with a little pine and some caramel. Taste is potent and bitter but with some sweetness in the middle and some dank hops in the finish. Body is medium with a sticky mouthfeel. I never would have guessed this one has such a high ABV without reading the label. Another exceptional double IPA from Stone.

RuinTen is a supurb IPA, with a powerful array of palate pounding taste. The aroma is bold, but well balanced with the even bolder hops to present a well rounded experience. I love me a good IPA, and my first taste of this, courtesy of the most excellent Yeasty Beasty, in Monmouth, OR, made quite the impression. Stone keeps upping the bar.

Reddish brown. Bomber to glass. Slightly sweet with the mist melodic hopfest you can dream of. Drink this if you have the palate sophistication!

Pours a a reddish bronze. Full of flavor, smooth considering the ABV (10.8), hops definitely present. Aroma present in every sip, also tastes fresh, almost freshly poured from the tap.

Poured from a bomber. Crystal clear copper colored with minimal head. Great aroma, smelled of floral and citrusy hops. Tastes of citrus hops with slight bitterness. Hides the alcohol extremely well. Incredible brew.

Bottle from Total Wine, Tampa. It pours clear deep orange with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, resin, sticky orange, tinned peach, marmalade, varnish, brown bread and alcohol. The taste is resinous, pine, varnish, booze, leaf, orange, marmalade, peppery and earth with a lingering bitter finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and oily, viscous mouth-feel. Nice flavour, but pretty damn boozy. Big stuff all-round!
