(Escondido, CA) – The ever-popular Stone RuinTen Triple IPA otherwise known by Stone Brewing as “a stage dive into a mosh pit of hops” is back to satisfy palates of the highest order of hop fanatics. The triple IPA will make its annual return in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at select retailers, bars and restaurants where Stone beer is sold, beginning the week of June 20.
Stone RuinTen Triple IPA is the cranked-up version of Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0, introduced in 2012 to honor the original’s 10th anniversary. At 10.8 percent alcohol by volume and with a walloping dose of hops, Stone RuinTen Triple IPA has (very appropriately!) earned a perfect score of 100 on RateBeer.
“This is a big, bold beer packed with hops,” said Stone President & co-founder Steve Wagner. “We dry-hop it with five pounds of hops per barrel to get this vibrant, over-the-top flavor. Since its debut in 2012, Stone RuinTen Triple IPA has become a favorite among Team Stone and our fans, so we’re thrilled to brew the recipe once again.”
Stone RuinTen Triple IPA showcases intense, dank and fruity aromatics with hints of mint and spice. Fans will enjoy an abundance of tropical fruit flavors that carry throughout the palate before giving way to a long, clean, bitter finish. The amped-up malt bill perfectly balances the massive hop character and provides a full-bodied mouthfeel while also creating an elevated ABV.
Stone RuinTen Triple IPA should be enjoyed as fresh as possible to experience the full flavor impact created by Magnum, Centennial and Citra hops. Hopheads, rejoice! It’s yours for the taking.
