Stone Brewing Co. Ruination Double IPA 2.0 22oz Bottle
This beer pours clear gold with a cream-colored head. The hop aromatics of this beer are massively fruity, with tons of melon, tropical fruit and citrus followed by resiny pine notes and a hint of dankness. The balance shifts a bit more toward the taste of the hops, with tropical fruit being more dominant and hints of melon and citrus following closely behind. The pine notes are also intense, and the beer's light malt character allows the bitterness to really stand out. The beer is medium bodied with a dry, substantially citrusy, bitter finish. Modernizing a classic is never easy. This recipe is only partially new, in that we took an original concept and added new elements to keep Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 aligned with our tradition. We made an effort to maintain the roots of Stone Ruination IPA by keeping Centennial as a primary hop in the brewhouse and the dry-hop stage, and we added a substantial dose of Simcoe and Citra, along with a new hop variety, Azacca. The result is an intense mix of hop flavors: tropical fruit, citrus, pine, melon and a hint of resiny dankness.
