A Note on This Beer
Today’s Imperial IPA is called InterGalactic, but how does it compare to actual intergalactic space? Let’s find out!
Category 1: Hop-fullness!
InterGalactic the beer absolutely overflows with hops. The brewers at Virginia’s Commonwealth Brewing added enough Galaxy, Comet, and Hallertau Blanc Hops to fill the space shuttle!
Actual intergalactic space is remarkably empty. Scientists estimate that it contains just one hydrogen atom per cubic meter, and we have to assume that the hop density is well south of that. Like, no hops. At all.
Category 2: Sunshiny Deliciousness!
Take a sip of this brew, and it’ll take you on a rocket ride through sunny layers of mango, papaya, and tangerine before drifting back to earth with a lingering pithy bitterness. And, it’s so smooth, you won’t even notice that big 8.7% ABV!
There is nothing even vaguely resembling flavor OR sunshine in intergalactic space. The temperature out there is something like -450 degrees fahrenheit. Not exactly shorts weather.
Category 3: Grab-ability!
Getting your hands on this IPA is no easy feat! Unless you’re rolling through Virginia or D.C., your chances of stumbling upon a bottle are basically nil. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered — until our little stash runs out, too!
But, intergalactic space is even harder to access. In fact, no man-made object has ever left the Milky Way Galaxy! So . . . you probably won’t be visiting anytime soon.
There you have it! Indisputable scientific proof that InterGalactic IPA is better than intergalactic space! And, you don’t even need a rocketship to try it.
