    Holy hops batman! This is going to be a good one I think. I just plugged the recipe from the Austin Homebrew direction into BS and the first thing that has me worried is the 211 IBU's. It's their recipe so I guess it will be ok.

    diminishing returns, that first hop addition is not going to yield 150 IBU

    but it's gonna be damn hoppy and bitter.

    I highly doubt a beer can be above 100 ibu's without some crazy extract things.

    Yeah...I don't know if it's a literal 100+ ibu beer but it is one of the hoppiest beers I've ever drank. ic an't compare to the original since I don't live on the left coast. My friend that came over said he was in CA visiting a friend and they went to a bar that was serving flights of pliny the younger and pliny the elder. When they showed up it was three hour wait to get a flight.
