The only thing I can think of is they're using propeller as a bench mark? But revolution is on the low side of an ris abv, and frankly not that great a beer... Haha. Compare Jeff's to a REAL ris and $6 is a great deal.

I promised Jeff a review of the RIS and BARIS. They did not get used yet.

I will post when I can.

I didn't think any of the BA RIS made it to town that night I did the pickup. If it did, I missed out too! :(
GAM has been to the source since then, so he might have got it then.

It's going to be a good while yet before the BBL aged RIS comes out.

I had a regular RIS the night before last and it was hoppy as balls delicious black goodness, like a really hoppy American Imperial Stout. It will cellar really well too, I'm sure. :cheers2:

Sorry Keith. I didn't realize there was a BA in front of that line. Like Nash said it will be awhile!

You had asked what, to whom, when? I don't recall being asked, I would have spoken up.

I can't tell if I'm too late, but if not, I will take 4 BA bottles. Thanks!

Last Saturday I did the BAB and BBQ trip to the Valley. I had posted if anyone had requests.

I am taking the Kids Snowboarding tomorrow. I am going to meet Jeff and get a growler and can obtain the required Nosers requests.

Sorry, I was/am confused. I was hoping for 4 BA (Barrel Aged) RIS. I think you were talking about BA (Bad Apple) RIS.

I am good on the non-Barrel Aged front, I'm waiting to put Jeff's wood in my mouth.

I stayed away. Was itching to say something though :lol:

It had to be a deliberate joke.
