Koga personally held in his hand every one of the Fantasy Factory bottles that’s left the brewery.
Koga achieves that layer of bready-caramel sweetness amidst all those hops with Golden Promise, a malt that is a favorite thanks to the toast-like character it imparts to beer.
Fantasy Factory finishes at 6.3% ABV with an estimated 65 IBUs. It sells in the brewery's taproom for $4.75 per glass and $13 per growler refill, and six-packs run about $8-9.
The Consensus: 91 (outstanding) at BeerAdvocate and 95/93 (overall/style) at RateBeer.
This is my favorite local beer. I am not a fan of malty, this isn't malty. It is hoppy. Stumbled across two six packs pushed back in a lower rack at the store. 10 bucks each. My wife liked it. She doesn't like beer, let alone IPA. The label roxxx.
