    As someone who enjoyed Life and Limb, I'm looking forward to this a lot.

    As long as they keep it far away from birch anything, I'm sure it'll be great.

    I still have a L&L just begging me to crack it open and I just cant do it :confused: I like the items like this but I live in an area that is just not a huge distro area so items like this cost me a huge amount when I happen to find them.

    Looking forward to it, too—I like this talk about glassware designed specially for hop-forward beer, too.

    I actually enjoyed L&L from what I remember. I have 2 more bottles in my cellar, and I believe one of my best friends has 1 left in his collection as well. I'm really looking forward to this, and will be looking for a hookup since DFH doesn't distribute to MN *sad face*
  10. Sounds interesting...

    Anyone have any idea what Hop 644 is like? I know it's not yet on the market, but word gets around sometimes.

    Awesome label, that's for sure. Will definitely try, as I am always on the lookout for a new IPA.

    hope to try but live in an area of cali that doesnt get the dogfish distro, so will have to trade ISO anyone haha

    zappafrank Aficionado (170) Ohio Sep 9, 2012

    Yeah, Cali is weird. I live in Chico and the only Russian River we ever get up here is Damnation and Redemption. LAME.

    I read about this a few days ago when they first announced it and got excited. I missed L&L 1 but I had a shot at 2 (which I think is basically the same) and I enjoyed it. It was fantastic, but it was far from terrible. I'm really excited about a hop-forward collab between these two. DFH doesn't do a lot of hop-forward beers (aside from the various Minute IPAs, Squall and Hellhound. Maybe some others, but not a lot) they tend to do more experimental things (like the original L&L), but this sounds cool and I'm excited to try a new kind of hop. Also I love the idea of them combining DFH's continuous hopping methods and SN's Torpedo method. Should be awesome, I hope we get enough in AZ for me to find one (Phoenix tends to get all the cool beers since the 2 big distro companies are based there so I miss out on a lot in Tucson). It was pretty easy to find L&L but thats because it was distributed my SN. DFH tends to be a bit trickier.

  18. Anyone know if this has been released yet?? Or even if the Sacramento area will see any of this? :)
  19. Just picked up a bottle of Collage today thanks to Deschutes distribution, hoping to luck out on this one too!

    Is Collage worth the price? What is it, like $12 for a 12oz bottle?
  22. GFG

    GFG Savant (315) North Dakota Oct 24, 2012

    I'm guessing Rhizing Bines will ONLY be sent throughout Dogfish Heads distribution? :(
  23. Yes, it is. One of my top beers of 2012.

    I'm really excited about this. Being new to this, I missed L&L and hope my store gets plenty in for me to buy and put aside.
  25. Anyone know the availability of said glassware? I'd love to get my hands on some. Probably through their online store?
    EDIT: Just saw it on DFH's online store. $9/19oz glass. Hm.

    I'm getting ready to go to their site and snag one myself. I have the other glass they put out that I bought while visiting.

    Very excited about this. I also missed Life and Limb so I'll have to snag one of these.

    Had this on draft last night at Two Stones Pub in Wilmington, DE. It was a bit pricey ($12 for 12 oz) but man, it was great. Really unique hop character - didn't slap me over the head like I thought it would, but they're certainly there and you know this is a hop-forward drink. I'd be interested to know exactly what these 644 hops are. The "subtle sweet and nutty notes" from the description definitely applies. Highly recommended.

    Yes. I did see it today but couldn't pick up a bottle as it was prior to 6am... Dumb laws...

    12.99 btw
  31. Qwest_35

    Qwest_35 Savant (300) Florida Feb 4, 2013 Verified

    I saw it being stocked today at my local liqour store. I almost grabbed a bottle, but at 12.99 I'd rather pick up a sixer of Sucks.
  32. DonDirkA

    DonDirkA Savant (410) Arizona Dec 14, 2011

    Totally worth it. It was $11 a bottle here in AZ. I had one fresh and it was awesome. The Best After date is something like 4/30/13 so I'm saving another to try after. I'm gonna be picking up a few more too, and thats saying a lot with that price point.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll try have my girlfriends family send some Rhizing Bines up from San Antonio and I'll go pick up a bottle or two of Collage myself.

    I really hope its at my store tomorrow. I'll be grabbing a few after work.

    Anyone that has access to this release want to work out a trade for a few bottles?
  37. I would really like to try this, but I can't justify spending $15 on a bottle of this--in Delaware nonetheless. This will be the first time in ages I'm passing on a new DFH release, but the quality to price ratio seems to be a bit off.

    Picked up a bottle last night for $11.99 in Fort Lauderdale. Haven't popped it yet but I'm hoping it's as good as I am expecting it to be...
  39. TychoNDC

    TychoNDC Savant (425) Colorado Jan 7, 2013

    Yeah I passed on it today as well (for now). $10 for 75 min vs $14 for rhizing bines, neither of which ive had. So I went with the 75 min.
  40. Has anyone seen this in the Sacramento area yet?
