Has anyone else tried this beer. Its pretty good. Does anyone know the hop in it.

Could it be POR? Taste sort of similar , (though i do have a Cold). I'm guessing the IBUs are in the mid-30s

I think I read somewhere that ISO hop extract can be made that doesn't skunk in clear bottles. Is this true? Probably accounts for why it always seems to turn up in clear glass bottles.

yup, the hop extract doesn't skunk.

Ruddles County used to be a favorite tipple of mine. Now they use quadisohop extract and all you can taste is the horrible hop extract!

No extract can be as good as the real hops, but quad iso hop extract is disgusting. Why do they use it?
