Fantasy Factory

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.

They slipped some prizes in a few of the six pack's, so be sure to examine yours carefully.
It's a fine beer. I wouldn't say it's my favorite but it's on the short list.

It's got the best label ever and its pretty good beer. I like 'em a little stronger. It kind of reminds me of Lagunitas Sucks but more leaning towards the sour side than Sucks sweetness, and not as powerful.

As i was going through the nasty garbage in the garbage can outside, desperately looking for the boxes and free coupons for beer therein, it dawned on me, "I wonder if a random guy on the Internet was just trolling me to go through my trash?"

Either way I lost. The found boxes held nothing not even a rock.

To the best of my knowledge and belief, I steered you right. I no longer remember where I heard it though. I think it was a Karben4 Facebook post.

You did. K4 tweeted about it.

I was again chuckling to myself thinking about me rooting through the garbage, as I emptied a six pack into the fridge today. I take the box to fold it up and recycle, when I spy A FREE DRINK TOKEN!!! Thanks Karben4!
