Well, since you asked, I'd have to go with either Stone IPA or Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA.

Beer and oil actually go together quite well. :D

My "heated" grips appear to have two settings: Off, and slightly warm. (BMW refers to them as 50% and 100%). To associate the term "heat" with the grips is a complete misnomer.
