Nor is this likely to be at Frisco's Hop Fest on August 31st.
The Globe and Mail of Toronto reports [emphasis added]:
At the Too Hop To Handle festival in Vancouver last month, Claire Connolly put the name of the event to the test. The brewmaster from Big River Brewpub in Richmond, B.C. entered a small batch of “Insane” India Pale Ale in the friendly competition. It registered 9 per cent alcohol and a shocking 151 International Bittering Units. (IBU is the scale used to measure hop bitterness in beer, given in parts of iso-alpha acids per million.) To put this hop monster in perspective, consider that most IPA, the fastest-rising beer category in North America, falls in the 30-to-60 IBU range.They "Randallized" a cask of 151-IBU IPA..............
“I was worried that it wouldn’t be drinkable,” Ms. Connolly said, pouring a glass from a cask that passed through a filter filled with dried hop buds to infuse it with an additional blast of rubber band bitterness and pinecone aroma.
And I sense a few readers already searching for a sample of this sadistic creation.
(This is not the record claim; BrewDog claimed 225 IBUs for the first batch of their 0.5%-alcohol Nanny State.)
