ESCONDIDO, California – Stone Brewing announces the re-release of a fan-favorite beer known for its gigantic hop flavor, Stone RuinTen Triple IPA. This beer was the #1 voted choice in Stone’s 2022 Fan Favorites Series of six special releases. It has been rebrewed and is now available nationwide for a limited time.
To understand the full ruinous qualities of Stone RuinTen Triple IPA, let’s revisit an even older fan favorite, Stone Ruination IPA. In 2002, Stone Ruination IPA became the first full time brewed and bottled West Coast style Double IPA on the planet. In effect, it quickly became the most widely available example of the style. At the time, it was an attack on the palate, quite literally off the bitterness charts. So naturally, Stone celebrated Stone Ruination IPA’s 10th anniversary with even more hops. Stone’s brewers raised the ABV to 10.8% and upped the bitterness with reckless abandon.
The combination of Centennial and Citra hops make for an abundance of tropical fruity flavors right up front. A pleasant maltiness balances the hops and the experience finishes with that long, lingering, gloriously ruinous finish that defines the West Coast IPA style.
“In Stone’s early days, we’d brew our hoppiest beer yet to celebrate each anniversary, which led to Stone Ruination IPA,” explained Jeremy Moynier, Stone Brewing Senior Manager of Brewing & Supply Chain and 18-year veteran of the brewery. “That shot to another stratosphere with Stone RuinTen. I absolutely love the extreme dankness, pine and resin that assaults you up front. It finishes with intense fruit, hints of malt, sweetness and has just a touch of warming, reminding you that this is a big beer. Every sip transports me to hop harvest where intense hop aromas hit you wherever you go!”
Stone RuinTen Triple IPA is the third release in Stone’s 2022 Fan Favorites Series. The series is a lineup of limited release throwback beers voted on by loyal fans of the brewery’s prolific 25-year history. It is now available nationwide in 12oz six-pack cans, 22oz bottles and draft.
