    Nice recap – I have only seen the first episode. The 120 IPA is a very interesting beer. I typically hand carry this from Chicago to California. I’ve got a few left (dated 11/05/08). I do not think the beer gets any better after a year in bottle. It doesn’t have to age well to be a great beer. I’ll bet Sam disagrees.

    I’m really interested in these “super-tasters”. I am sure these individuals have got the palate for the job – which is an understated talent.

    I agree with the previous post, bottle the beer as declassified 120 IPA much like a 2nd wine (ie: Harlan Estate – Maiden).

    Great recap! My friends and I debated the dumping of the beer batch and felt that they should have kept it (under a different name) being completely transparent that it was a mishap beer. Or, donated it to some sort of cause (like by a pint of our mishap beer and all proceeds go to charity).

    Just my two cents.
