So there's this guy that goes to the same Wed Night trivia bar as me, and he has a lunch/dinner beer/wine bar/restaurant uptown here where I work. Finally walked over there today for a sandwich, and on my way out the door, he throws me one of these. Napa Smith's web page says 144 IBUs. Cool story, bro!

We can only taste between 95 - 120 IBU's, so really these so called 120+ hop bombs are just marking ploys. Water can only handle so much hop oils. After that point it becomes saturated, at some point it just settles to the bottom. Just some food for thought.

$13.99 so up to you. It was tasty but I'm still not really in the mood for oil thick beer right now.

I liked this. Opened it up today. The cherry was strong but was also tart. Easy to drink tart stout....my kinda beer.

Evil twin Flaco IPA. Crisp and delicious. I also recently tried the Yang IPA. Tastes exactly like Sierra Nevada, with more alcohol. Turns out the Hy-Vees in IC don't price beer the same, $1 cheaper at the Drugtown on 1st.
