    If you ever see ShanePB looking for some beer that you have, be sure to take care of that guy. He will certainly take care of you as well. Blown away by this box from the PA. Trade was for 4 Calling Birds that we sort of turned into a mini locals BIF.

    Had to go back and buy some more BCBS to take home from D.C. Pricy, but worth it (cheaper than paying the shipping on a trade for it). Picked up the other one on a whim.

    I know they're gouging, because Parabola is $24, and I have a reference price ($16) for that. Left it on the shelf. And they are selling Stone Espresso IRS and regular Stone IRS for $16!!! Robbery...

    If you like Crooked Tree then they're all good. I liked Crooked Tree a couple years ago but I'm not as into the malt balanced IPAs these days. I just wanna get blasted by hops like some of the pipeworks imperial ipas or Jai Alai

    That Stone was great fresh, not too sure now though. Had my last one last year and it was less than stellar. Tasted like grapefruit soda fresh.

    not getting grapefruit... more like a brown ale/esb. still hoppy, buy not fruit hop, just dry bitter.

    bigedct Savant (405) Connecticut Jun 23, 2011

    Like I said, fresh it was refreshingly awesome citrus. Remember, that beer was brewed to help build VT after Irene in 2011. IPA +1.5 years old.

  24. T.C.'s Banana Split Stout is by far, IMO, the best beer they make. The rest are rather pedestrian for sure.
