Wow! I was given one of these and I held it for a couple weeks, but night I just decided it was time. I apologize to friends and family that should have been here to try it.. I’m sorry. It’s delicious.
From the famed brewery (The Alchemist) that brings us Heady Topper, comes a single IPA called Focal Banger. At 7% ABV, it’s not going to knock you down quite as quickly as its older brother, but it still packs quite a punch. When you first open the can it stinks of weed and citrus and the first taste doesn’t betray your nose.
I’m a huge fan. Some people might argue that it’s not different enough from Heady Topper, but I disagree. This is a smooth drinking IPA that I wish I could get my hands on regularly. Unfortunately, it’s even harder to get than its older brother. If you get the chance, take the plunge. It’s wonderful.
