4.13/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
OLD bottle of Rui which I believe may have been bottled ~2004 (San Marcos bottle), poured into an OG tulip glass, drinking to celebrate the Giants Super Bowl victory
Appearance is crystal clear light orange hue, head is frothy spotty white foam that sustains about half its mass, big thick lacing on the glass
Smell is sugary sweet malts (oranges, pine) and a mix of bready and caramel malts, slight grapefruit and brown sugar
Taste is surprisingly mild hop presence, more sweet than bitter, and a decent bread/caramel malt body, finishes with very slight bitterness and a little bit of alcohol warming
Mouthfeel is light-to-medium bodied, watery thin texture with a touch of oiliness, moderate carbonation withstands the test of time
Drinkability is high because the alcohol is barely perceptible and the hops are sweet-over-bitter, the malts are surprisingly present for a DIPA, Stone RUI is always a great choice and its been a treat to sample this aged version, the hops have held up well over time much like is seen in some of the older Stone Anniversary beers, I'm always coming back for more of this!

Excellent! Great body for a Double IPA, forward hop, and aftertaste that wins! Thank you Stone Brewery for always living up to your expectation. Ruination is an excellent IPA for those who enjoy the sensation of superior hops!
Cheers to you Stone! Thank you for the excellent brew
