Stone Brewing

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop
First Release: April 2015

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 employed 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.”

nice darker golden straw color with a little bit of haze. smells of tropical fruits, pine and some fresh grass. Taste follows the nose well with a decent amount of bitterness hitting first followed by the sweeter tropical flavors then the light cracker like malts hit followed by more piney bitterness with a nice slick oily mouthfeel that dries up pretty quickly. Another great beer from stone

Can. From Zombier. In hotel's tubular glass. Watching Spiderman. 7 months after bb date. Kept on fridge Plenty of pine and resin (maybe a bit over the top) here along with light tropical notes. Alcohol well hidden. To repeat fresher

Solid beer, but a little heavy and in your face for my tase. Prefer Stone's regular IPA (green bottle) from this brewer.
