    Looks like 16 oz. cans. Guessing it will be brewed by Surly and available in MN.

    Sure it's a crappy style, but any colab between those 2 will be good to trade anyway.
    I'll pass either way most likely.

    Try the Lakefront Black Friday Black IPA. It will change your mind about the style. Amazing!

    Yeah, I was only referring to FFF and Surly.
    Who even gives a shit about Real Ale - really?

    Now that I think about it, who would even want to trade for a Black IPA?

    I'm not to keen on Black IPA's, but I'm willing to give this a shot. I'm not familiar with Real Ale, but Surly & FFF know a little bit about hops, so I'll gladly take that chance.

    Nothing. My bad.

    I wouldn't call that ignorant - but still, you're right. It was not necessary and definitely uncalled for.
    I hate that style. Should've just moved along instead of commenting...period.

    IMPERIAL Black Ale. I'm thinking along the lines of Indeed Haywire. Or hell, could even be closer to a really hoppy porter, who knows.

    All I was going to say is their barrel program is on point I get why them three decided on a BIPA, but I'm not into that shit either.

    I know the connection between Surly and Three Floyds, they have done a couple collaborations before. Real Ale Brewing, Texas brewery. Where is the connection with them?

    Real Ale is solid, 3 floyds is solid, surly is solid. I imagine this beer will be pretty tasty. May not be the most popular style, nor my favorite, but still looking forward to see what they can do with it

    I am also a black ipa fan, so I'll be givin this a crack. Real ale makes some good ass beers, not sure why all the hate. Try their dry hopped porter (when fresh), and I assure you that you'll hate no more.

    The negativity at the start of this thread is gone now! I also like BIPA's! I consider Midnight Ryder a BIPA.

    That's what I am hoping for. I'm not a huge BIPA guy but when it's really big and resinous like Haywire I'm game.

    The label lists "16 oz." so it must be going into cans.

    From that interview it sounds like Surly will release in 16oz cans, Real will release in 4/pack of 12oz cans, and FFF will be releasing in Bombers. Sounds like they are all brewing their own batch.

    My Surly sales rep told me 2 weeks ago that rumor has it this monster will be around 160 IBU's. 16 oz 4-packs and a monster price tag as well. He told me to expect a shelf price around $24/4-pack. Not sure on availability, but he said it should be shipping in the next week or so.

    It hasn't even been brewed yet (in MN). They did so last week in IN and TX a week before that.
