  • I think the second reference (tribute to India) is a bit of a stretch...should it be there? --Cowdude101 17:32, 16 March 2006 (CST)
  • I concur. Infinitesimal is just a word meaning "small" that alliterates with the IPA acronym. Besides, I thought that was the Ottoman Empire, not India.--Einstein9073 01:23, 22 March 2006 (CST)

This is most likely a reference to 2-propanol or isopropyl alcohol more commonly known as "rubbing alcohol"; The common abbreviation for which being IPA. IPA is one of the "fusel alcohols" or higher alcohols (having more than 2 carbon atoms in their molecular structure). though in most alcoholic beverages these are considered a bad thing (poison...more so than ethanol) some beverages such as whiskey contain small (in the range of a few parts per million on might say Infinitesimal) amounts of fusel alcohol as part of their "flavor" (hence that kinda falling down-pukey-sick-black out-in a trunk-cops with guns drawn-FUN feeling one gets from a good bottle of whiskey...i hope you know what i mean...if not well i hope you dont end up in jail for the night when you find out ;] ).

  • @Andorin Kato, The issue here is that even though the description labels it as a beer, it doesn't benefit from salty mouth. I think the note should still stand, especially since the word beer is in its desc, it'd be counter intuitive. Argus 08:49, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
  • This description doesn't make a lot of sense. They raise the flowers specifically for this reason, thus reducing the number of flowers the earth can make. The flowers are then cooked for days and sealed up (as a liquid) in airtight containers. And how many had to be destroyed to make one bottle of beer? When a man drinks beer, his testosterone catalyzes the destruction of the flower essence (floranol), and so he pees out a complete lack of flowers. How is this not the manliest beverage? Man, some people just don't understand biochemistry. --Zordran 17:44, 6 July 2011
