***CASK CONDITIONED***

This was available yesterday at the brewery as a hand-pumped, cask conditioned special brew. Since i am a fan of Ruinitaion I had to give it a shot.

A - slightly cloudy golden-reddish

S - Strong sweet, citrusy aroma...oh yeah and HOPS!

T - Hop heaven. You can definately taste the floral, bitter bite of the Chinook hops.

M - Just as that of the regular Ruination but it tingles a bit more from the added bitterness.

D - Drinkability? Is there any question? YES! Very good even for non-cask fans.

Cask Conditioned!

This is beer perfection.

A: A cloudy golden color.

S: Smell is of the Chinook and Columbus hops. Nice floral smell.

T: Perfection. Hops are bitter and straightforward. But the malt as a result of the cask conditioning are there as well to add complexity to the brew. Great stuff.

M: Creamy and bitter.

D: Too easy to drink. I drank four because they were that great.

Conclusion: Whenever Stone has its cask night and this beer is on tap, get it! You won't regret it!
