Turbo Hog, NABC's 10th (brewery) anniversary India Malt Liquor, is on tap at BSB.

Quite possibly it's pouring at the Pizzeria & Public House, too, although I'm on my way to Indianapolis and haven't time to look. This is a preview; there'll be more to come.

Turbo Hog
ABV: 9.5%
OG: 20 degrees Plato
IBU: 86

India Malt Liquor
Malts: Rahr Pale, flaked maize
Sugar: White table sugar
Hops: Hallertau Magnum and Tettnanger, Czech Saaz (4 late kettle additions and dry hops)
Yeast: House Ale

The finest malt liquor yet devised by man
First came Bush Hog, and then its logical culmination, Turbo Hog (sans paper bags). Augmented with corn, boosted in strength, and refashioned as a malt liquor, it was a briefly invigorating experiment. Boss Hog was planned, but never brewed.
