BC Craft Beer Review – Bomber Brewing Blood From A Stone Collaboration

Stone and Bomber Blood

Bomber Brewing Blood From A Stone Collaboration: In collaboration with Stone Brewing Compamy to celebrate their BC launch, Bomber Brewing released this 6.8% abv and 60 IBU Red Rye IPA in a screen printed bottle, keeping with the Stone Brewing tradition.

Aroma and Appearance: It pours a clear amber colour with medium carbonation and two fingers of ivory coloured foam. The aroma is lemon citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, pine and doughy malt with bits of mango near the edges of the glass.

Flavour: The rye is very impressionable and dominating at first with some doughy malt sneaking in as it transitions into an intense tangerine, grapefruit and pine resin bitter explosion all over your palate. Their are hints of lemon and earth here and there, but its mostly rye, pine resin and grapefruit bitterness.

Overall Impression: Stone is known for their intense beers and this one is no surprise as it’s a bit over the top, enjoyable but very, very bitter.

Rating: Very good at 7/10 for me, it tipped my bitter scale a little bit, but not enough to make it taste bad. These are great palate trainers, good for getting used to highly bitter beers.

Food Pairing: Would pair well with dark meat, like a pork steak with some Cajun spice on it.

This is how they teased this beer in their Instagram account so be sure to follow them; well played Bomber Brewing!

Take from this what you will…

  1. Being a huge fan of unreasonably bitter IPA’S I didn’t find this one all that bitter but it was very tasty and quite deserving of having Stone Brewing’s Name on the bottle beside our own newcomers Bomber Brewing.
