How do some people manage to be so cheery and bouncy everyday?
Some mornings I feel like crying just on the way to work.
Can’t believe my performance will be hinged on an idiot. Or at least, perfect to serve as an excuse.
Stone - 10th Anniversary Ruination IPA
Where to even start with this one…
Stone may not be the inventors of the Double IPA, but I think they are for sure one of the first breweries to fully embrace the style and create an entire brand around perfecting it.
Lets give this this a whirl. First off, its super dank hops are just overflowing out of the bottle into the glass. Big resinous nose, some fruity citrus notes and just a crap ton of hop aroma.
The taste is an absolute orgy of hops, carbonation, balanced malts and heavy powerful bitterness. The 10% isn’t all that noticable, and if you’re a hop head, this is for sure worth your time. It’s over the top and Stone has once again proven they are masters of the style. It’s pretty much perfection in a bottle. If this doesn’t hook you on the style I’m not sure what will. 10th Anniversary Ruination delievers on its promise to destroy your palate and still leave you wanting more.
Bottome Line: Dank, Powerful Bitterness, Balanced, A must try. Find this and drink it fresh!
Version: Pannepot is by De Struise Brouwers, a microbrewery from Belgium. This is a spiced Belgian Strong Ale, 2010 vintage, in 33cl bottle, with ABV 10.00%.
Appearance: This is very a big opaque dark brown, virtually black ale…
