    After the mass hysteria I have had a hard time finding it in some places.

    Snagged two and while delicious it still doesn't compare to the BBA.

    I figured places would do that to OG Hellfighter because of the hype w/ BBA Hellfighter.

    Picked up 2 bottles of Hellfighter at Whole Foods Sugar Land. There were 2 more bottles left on the shelf. Talked to the specialty cheese lady and she said they'll soon have 8-10 taps available for growler fills and in-store consumption I believe.

    They currently have 2 taps on right now. (512) IPA and Full Sail Dopplebock.

    Does anyone know if this is a new beer, or just re packaging/naming their original "Black IPA" they did when they first started?

    I'm more focused on that specs tweeted it. To me it implies that specs has it. From my understanding its a BIPA, so I presume that's a Black IPA not Belgium IPA

    icetrauma Savant (495) Texas Sep 7, 2004

    yep Roshambo is the Belgian IPA

    Also feel it mentionable that the Hellfighrers rang up as "Krunkin Pumpkin".

    Interesting... I'm not a huge Barnburner fan, but in white wine barrels sounds quite appealing.

    It sounds better then BB2, that's for damned sure. Not that BB2 was bad mind you however I was expecting more "oomph" out of a BB release.

    These aren't full, and aren't slated to come out for awhile. They probably visited the brewery where they have these, and others, on display.

    Correct. Spec's does not have these yet. Here's what they tweeted.

    @Specs_Beer_Dept: "Not sure when F.U.N. 004 will be ready, but the guys are thinking 4 or 5 weeks on Hopadillo Negro and RoShamBo. Both will be year-round!!!"

    Just had a Lakewood Hop Trapp last night, which is a Belgian IPA. I dont typically like Belgian beers or IPA's, but if anything it was pleasant and drinkable.

    Went to the brewery after work and had Hop Dillusion (test batch 1) and it was crazy good. Awesome fruity aromas - had it on cask at the Saucer and it wasnt spectacular. Had my first Barn Burner - I could drink that all day. Can't wait for RoShamBo.

    Will do. Thanks a bunch for the recommendation!

    I shop in Houston periodically, but other than all of our good regional brews, I'm never sure what I should be able to find and what I can't.
