Beer God’s Notes

Well hello, there old friend.  Ruination was the first IPA that I had that really opened my eyes to the world of hoppy and flavorful beer.  I will never forget my first taste.  Then a few years back, Stone releases Ruination Tenth Anniversary to celebrate.  I never thought I would get an IPA better than that (and I got the commemorative glass for it).  Then the year after they rebrand it as RuinTen and I look forward to it every year.

RuinTen is just a phenomenal TrIPA. It really is a stage dive into a mosh pit of hops. I have a hard time writing about beers that I enjoy this much just because I know they aren’t everyone’s style – but I can’t get enough.

A Stage Dive Into A Mosh Pit of Hops

Ruining Palates Since 2002

We first released this decidedly indelicate beer in 2012 as Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our beloved bitter Stone Ruination IPA. Stone RuinTen Triple IPA uses the same recklessly hoppy recipe as the 2012 release; only the name has been changed to include “Triple,” which helps describe the over-the-top hop profile and elevated alcohol by volume. We packed a whopping five pounds of hops into each barrel, and cranked up the ABV to stand up to the hop onslaught. The results are glorious, and we know you’ll rejoice in tasting this audacious gem of hoppy splendor. You’re welcome. Again.
