Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary Edition
Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary Edition from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a golden color with a lofty and frothy white colored head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of pine, hop resins and oils, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and a dankness. The taste is bitter and extremely hoppy with plenty of citrus flavors on the front end. Orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and lemon all present themselves before a hop resin takes over the mouth. This lingers for a little while before pepper and spruce flavors hit on the finish. The alcohol content is 10.8% ABV. This was an utterly fantastic Imperial IPA with great citrus flavors and major hop resins. It lingers in your mouth longer after it’s gone, and I was more than happy that it hung around.
