Ruhstaller Capt. – ABV: 55%
Ruhstaller Capt. is a California Black IPA produced by the Sacramento brewery with an ABV of 55%. The beer is intended to capture the spirit Captain Frank Ruhstaller, California’s first premiere brewer, and to honor his legacy. Th beer possesses a bright citrus aroma and fits into the typical style and taste of an IPA. However, Ruhstaller Capt. does possess one truly unique quality aside form its enormously high alcohol content (the second highest in the world, by the way). The beer also offers a smooth, lightly-roasted chocolate malt body, which is not commonly found in IPAs at all.
