Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary IPA

“We took the unapologetically hoppy Stone Ruination IPA—so named for its ruinous effect on the palate—and hopped it to high hell,” explains Stone CEO & Co-Founder Greg Koch. “We actually amped up everything,” continues Brewmaster Mitch Steele. “We added more malt to bring the abv up to 10.8%, and the amount of hops we used almost defies reason,” he jokes. “Stone Ruination IPA already uses 2.5 pounds of hops per barrel, which is more than double the amount we use in any other core beer. For this anniversary version, we went double again, and used a most impressive 5 pounds of hops per barrel!”
