I wish...it's one of my favorites.

They don't give any info on their site besides the OG (1.087) and the ABV (10%)

I'm heading there in july, maybe I can pick someones brain at the brewery.

I've wanted to try this one but I can't get myself to pay $16 for a 6 pack.

One of my buddies works at the brewery and gave me a tour of the place last weekend. I got to talk to a lot of the brewers and they were all nice and surprisingly willing to answer all of my questions. Hopslam was out of season so I didn't get to see the specialty malt that goes into that one, but I do know that they add honey to increase the gravity and it is centennial hops all the way through. I'll poke around and see if any of the employees have a scaled down recipe since almost all of them are homebrewers.

I found it for around $12 a six pack, I think, and it is totally worth every penny. Considering all the hops and other ingredients that are in it, with the shortage and all, the price makes sense. Great great beer.
