Bomber Brewing Co. & Stone Brewing – Blood From A Stone Red Rye IPA
With Stone Brewing entering the Canadian market they have teamed up with Bomber Brewing Company to brew their first ever British Columbia collaboration beer. The Blood From A Stone Red Rye Ale comes in a beautifully painted – Stone style bottle. Pouring as an amber colour topped with two full fingers of head the Blood From A stone has a spicy-hop aroma and a big malt body to go with it. In tasting the beer there is a fairly big body with strong rye notes which compliments a big hop at the same time. A creaminess comes into play and while the body is rather large there is also a lightness to the texture and an airy feeling to the beer. Rye tones take charge and while the IBUs are rather high the malt tones and a caramel flavour also makes itself known. THis beer is well balanced and on the hoppy side with big Rye spice. A delicious beer for the hop-head in all of us.
