Special Stone Ruination IPA - 10th Anniversary Ale
Stone Brewing is releasing a special version of its Ruination double IPA on June 11, 2012. Ruination, a year-round release, is one of my favorite double IPAs. I view it similar to Pliny the Elder, in that it's a crisp, hop-forward beer, not a heavy, syrupy, alcohol bomb, which seems like the default for too many craft brewers and their double IPAs. Ruination's best attribute is its drinkablity. Stone, from the link above, says, "we'll be debuting the amped-up Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA, which is jam-packed with an even healthier than usual dose of hop glory, utilizing a blend of Citra and Centennial in the dry hop!" I am looking forward to this IPA.
