I have been trying to get this one for years. Finally, Stone came to Iowa. A 22 oz bomber.
Pours a dark reddish brown. Off white head with good lacing.
Taste: This stuff is intense. Hops galore. A nice malt back ground but really in the back ground. It is hard for me to even identify other tastes but the malt adds a little sweetness and there might be some caramel.
It has a nice creamy finish but the hops are just there to stay. And they make Ruination? I think this is the one that ruins your pallet.
Overall, quite a good beer. I could have aged this to see if it blended flavors.
Serving type: bottle

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
Serving type: on-tap
