New Stone RuinTen IPA


As a follow up to the 2012 release of Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA, celebrating Stone’s Ruination IPA 10th anniversary, Stone is releasing RuinTen IPA. RuinTen IPA has a hoppy recipe that has the same flavor richness of the Ruination IPA.


The RuinTen IPA was released officially on June 17, 2013. Its IBUs is 110 with an ABV of 10.8 percent due to each barrel containing a whole five pounds of hops.


Here are some tasting notes from Stone Brewing Company:


Tasting Notes

By Brewmaster Mitch Steele



Deep gold with an off-white creamy head of foam.



Intense, dank and fruity hop notes. Lemon oil infused with nectarine, pineapple and tropical fruit, with hints of mint and spice.



An abundance of tropical fruity hop flavors up front and carrying throughout the palate. A pleasant maltiness balances the hops about mid-palate. Finishes with a long, lingering, clean bitterness.



Full-bodied but dry, with an alcohol fullness and sweetness. Very bitter!



We brewed this beer using the same ingredients as in our classic Stone Ruination IPA, but bumped up the malt to achieve its elevated 10.8% abv. And of course we jacked up the hops as well–not just in the boil, but we doubled the dry-hop amount, using a 50/50 blend of Centennial and Citra. The combination is, dare I say, magic.
