Description 

We first released this decidedly indelicate beer in 2012 as Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our beloved bitter Stone Ruination IPA. Stone RuinTen Triple IPA uses the same recklessly hoppy recipe as the 2012 release; only the name has been changed to include “Triple,” which helps describe the over-the-top hop profile and elevated alcohol by volume. We packed a whopping five pounds of hops into each barrel, and cranked up the ABV to stand up to the hop onslaught. The results are glorious, and we know you’ll rejoice in tasting this audacious gem of hoppy splendor. You’re welcome. Again.

This self-described Triple IPA weighs in at an impressive 10.8 percent ABV with an impressive110 IBUs, inviting you to take "a stage dive into a mosh pit of hops." The aroma certainly represents this strength with an aggressive, slightly rough, resinous, grapefruity and orangey hop character over a moderate bready and caramel maltiness. The hop-over-malt balance shifts in the flavor as the slightly sweet caramel and bready malt begin to overtake the resins and citrus hop characters in strength. The alcohol is quite apparent but never becomes harsh. The 110 IBU bitterness is tempered by the high level of maltiness, which continues to overshadow the hops. This is certainly an awesome beer but the balance in the flavor and finish could be a little less malty to allow the hops to shine through from aroma to finish.
