After day three, do I miss shampoo? Not quite! My hair feels in good shape, and this stout smells like heaven.
First off, this is one of the strangest, most satisfying IPAs I've ever had. It's a 9% DIPA with a hint of mocha, though it doesn't show up much in the aroma. It's called a Mocha IPA, but it's not like a mocha stout with off-the-chart mocha flavors. In the shower, however… off-the-charts cacao filled my nostrils. It smelled delicious. And everything was going great until I left the shower.
My scalp felt tingly. Is all my hair going to fall out from this experiment? If so, will Thrillist pay for hair-replacement surgery? So while the beer does smell fantastic and taste delicious, I'm not sure I'd take it into the shower again. Unless it were to drink. This could also be a result of me washing my hair with beer four days in a row. If I wake up tomorrow and all my hair is gone, I won't be surprised.
After day four, do I miss shampoo? Yes. I would pay $50 to stop this experiment today.
