$28.17 / case(4)
Stone ruination ipa was the first full-time brewed and bottled west coast double ipa on the planet. As craft beer has evolved over the years so too have techniques for maximizing hop flavors and aromas. For the second incarnation of our groundbreaking india pale ale we employ dry hopping and hop bursting to squeeze every last drop of piney citrusy tropical essence from the hops that give this beer its incredible character. We’ve also updated the name to stone ruination double ipa 2. 0 to reflect the imperial-level intensity that’s evident in every sip. Join us in cheering this the second stanza in our “liquid poem to the glory of the hop.” 8. 5% abv tasting notes appearance this beer pours clear gold with a cream-colored head. Aroma the hop aromatics of this beer are massively fruity with tons of melon tropical fruit and citrus followed by resiny pine notes and a hint of dankness. Taste the balance shifts a bit more toward the taste of the hops with tropical fruit being more dominant and hints of melon and citrus following closely behind. The pine notes are also intense and the beer’s light malt character allows the bitterness to really stand out. Palate the beer is medium bodied with a dry substantially citrusy bitter finish. Overall modernizing a classic is never easy. This recipe is only partially new in that we took an original concept and added new elements to keep stone ruination double ipa 2. 0 aligned with our tradition. We made an effort to maintain the roots of stone ruination ipa by keeping centennial as a primary hop in the brewhouse and the dry-hop stage and we added a substantial dose of simcoe and citra along with a new hop variety azacca. The result is an intense mix of hop flavors: tropical fruit citrus pine melon and a hint of resiny dankness.
