Sometimes we’re in the mood for a good, hoppy, IPA, and Stone Brewing Company always delivers. We picked up the Ruinten at our local bottle shop on a weekend, and tried it out the next day.
According to Stone’s website, the Ruinten is the same recipe as the 2012 Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA, made to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the famous IPA. It has five pounds of hops in each barrel, and the ABV has been cranked up accordingly. The Stone website boasts “The results are glorious, and we know you’ll rejoice in tasting this audacious gem of hoppy splendor once again.”
