    So true, I went there last year and had maybe 5 different IPAs? Couldn't tell you which ones they were or what was different about them though.

    i think most feel the same with all the modern haze boi brewers. two biggest highlights from FOBAB (peach lost abbey thing aside) was the half acre michelada and the mon cheri pie i picked up afterwards.

    Lost Abbey wins a gold at GABF, then a gold at Fobab for a different beer, along with runner-up for best in show. Hmm

    126.43

    12 + 6 = 18

    4 - 3 = 1

    18 - 1 = 17

    17 = Q

    Same feels. Went to OH in February with my girlfriend and I drank through several "oat cream IPAs" and couldn't pick one from the other. My gf was like "Would it kill them to make a saison or something?..."
