4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was a bomber 7 days after packaging. Opened the bottle and was hit in the nose with the hops, almost a piney/citrus smell. Poured in to a tulip glass plenty of head on the pour. Darker Golden pour, slight haze. Firs taste I was taken back by the bitter hop taste, but I loved it. it is just like the bottles says " A astage dive into a mosh pit of hops" towards the end of the sip, the sweetness of the malt kicks in and compliments well. but the hops are very aggressive. My kind of beer. it is slightly boozy. but doesn’t bother me. Great beer all around. Wish this was a regular year round beer. I’d drink one every day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Smells very floral. A sweet honey note.
A: Looks pretty good. Explosive white head. Bronze clear color.
T: Nice wet hops on the palate. Finish is super bitter. Not a smooth bitterness. Aggressive.
P: More aggressive than other IPAs.
Overall this is a pretty good beer but not blowing my mind. A little too out of control compared to other stone beers.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
