Head retention is a very low priority when drinking a beer at home, but much higher when Iím at a bar. Perhaps push for 2.6 in kegged versions but 2.4 in the canned.

That explains why I find brew dog beers to be flabby. To say 2 volumes is fizzy is so myopic that I canít take it seriously. Beers are more singular and varied than to make a statement like that. Of course, it also depends on how youíre brought up re: beer..

We do our IPA at 2.55 and our DIPA/black IPA at 2.6. I think we could go even higher for DIPA, like 2.8 but thatís mostly because I like it when the style is closer to a tripel in mouthfeel; super attenuated and sparkling.

Force-carbonated IPA is, of course, inferior to naturally-carbonated, i.e. cask- or bottle-conditioned IPA. Yes, of course it shouldnít be fizzy.
