Stone Beer, Double IPA 2.0, Ruination

A liquid poem to the glory of the hop. Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 When this double IPA first hit the scene in 2002, the hoppy beer landscape was far different than it is today. Ales offering an onslaught of resinous humulus lupulus were virtually unknown. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. Terms such as lupulin and IBU are well established in the craft beer lexicon. And with the knowledge of all that hops have to offer comes the desire to go beyond bracing bitterness. Fortunately, Stone Ruination IPA has always been crafted to celebrate all facets of the hop - its beauty and poetry, its boldness and might. As craft beer has evolved, so too have techniques for extracting the best and the most out of hops. So we modernized Stone Ruination IPA, coaxing every last drop of piney, citrusy, tropical essence from the centennial, citra, simcoe and azacca hops that give this beer its incredible character. Join us in cheering this, the second stanza in our Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop. Videos and more: (at)StoneBrewingCo. Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. Pinterest. (Hashtag)Ruination. Drink fresh.
