This starts with a huge blast of grapefruity hops. It pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin white head that retreats to a ring fairly quickly. If you like balanced IIPA’s, stay away from this one. This is a total hop bomb, with just enough malt there to give it a nice body, and act as a buffer for the grapefruit bitterness to ride in on. There’s a long lingering bitter finish, and a bit of dryness. The alcohol is a bit noticeable as a touch of heat. I have the feeling I’ll be buying lots of this while it’s available.
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin im 2016-08 getrunken. 110 IBU sind ja schon mal eine Ansage, doch die leichten Graphefruitnoten finden sich auch am Gaumen wieder und es ist gut trinkbar. GarrettB (1691) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2017
February 1st, 2015 - RuinTen has since taken off around San Diego, but I remember back in 2015 it looked novel and new, and somewhat pretty in the glass, where it burns with that characteristic Stone hue, red and blushing and angry looking. The foam kicks up a fearful storm, too, taking up fully half of this pilsener glass (an unwise choice, I know). The aroma is layered with resin and a leather sharpness defines the hop note. There's some grapefruit too and even a dash of dry lime, but the overall impression is of an appreciably dry and hoppy nose. Consistent with the smell, the flavor is dry and hoppy, but there's also a malty body to back it up. I also get the deep savory flavor of miso (as if smeared on a piece of meat prior to grilling). The aftertaste is little short, but reveals the miso glaze flavor bundled with a bitter twang. This ask a slow sipper, but enjoyable over that long time. I should also note that the booze stays relatively hidden, so caution is advised if drinking with excessive speed. mybrainhurts (400) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 31, 2017
Aroma of herbal hops, tropical fruits, lemon seeds, and spices. Flavors are similar with a oily resin finish. Strong and yet drinkable. Very good. Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Dark orange color with a white head. The aroma is very citrusy, piney, and floral. The flavor is not very bitter but very smooth and creamy. I’m getting some orange flavored whipped cream, lemons, and pine. Some resin is present. This is unique but nice. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 5, 2017

Thin white head. Very hazy amber pour. Lovely bitterness. Some alcohol but it is well hidden. Nice brew. IndianaRed (5121) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2017
OnTap hazy deep copper color with a thin fine lasting light beige head. Deep floral citrus hop flavors. Lots of orange and tangerine. Big caramel malt body and a long lingering bitterness. Smooth heavy and good fruity hopness. colui72 (1158) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2017
Pours deep golden/amber, with a medium white head and not much lacing. Fantastic aroma of orange peel, vanilla and mango. Tastes quite bitter but very rich and complex, with caramel, ale malts, orange peel, mango, mandarin and strong vanilla. Tasty and easy to drink, besides the over 10% ABV, medium body, smooth, creamy and softly carbonated, bitter finish, with lot of orange peel after taste (and burps, burps are definitely pure orange peel!). Excellency in a bottle! jmgreenuk (10343) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 15, 2017
Tap at Craffity, Chiang Mai. Poured a hazy medium amber with a short-lived frothy white head. The aroma is malt, big tropical fruit citrus, resin hop, alcohol bitter. The flavour is moderate sweet with a sweet orange peel citrus, woody, resin hop, warm burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
