Fuchimoto said such small quantities of humulone were present in beer that someone would have to drink around 30 cans, each of 350 millilitres (12 oz), for it to have any virus-fighting effect.
Yeah, 30 cans of Sapporo - or half a bottle of IPA.

I guess all you would have to do is look at a bottle of IIPA...    ;D

Google scholar?  Hmmm...  Maybe google scholar is not so scholastic.

No hits on PubMed for humulone + RSV either.

Yeah, but PubMed tends to lag at least a few weeks behind, in my experience.
