  1. The way you say that “Imperial” mean “higher alcohol” sounds like you don’t think other styles when made “Imperial” increasing the alcohol doesn’t also imply increasing the IBUs to balance the beer… this is why Double/Imperial means higher alcohol but also higher IBUs. Balance, balance, balance.

    1. I agree Dan. This was a major point of contention during the episode, that making a beer “Imperial” is not just increasing the ABV.
