Bomber Brewing's "Blood from a Stone" Red Rye IPA!
Got bad news for you if you don't like em hoppy. This weekend is all about IPAs! Tomorrow's will be too.
With a name like "Blood from a Stone" you'd expect this to be a challenging drink, that it would take you all night to get through a bottle. Nothing could be further from the truth! After a few sips I quickly found myself chugging this remarkably drinkable, and only subtly hopped brew. At 6.8%abv it's a strong beer and demands your respect, but it's so refreshing that you will take it for granted and the respect will be hard-earned, to your drunken peril, but it definitely deserves it. The guys at Bomber definitely understand the concept of "just bitter enough!"
Eventually I am going to start assigning ratings to the beers I review, but if I were doing so, this would be four-and-a-half stars (out of five)! Ratebeer only gives it a 47 (out of 100); I respectfully disagree. This beer is a good solid 90 at least!
