  8. I feel so left out, every person in this thread has managed to find Heady, Pliny, Hopslam, Two Hearted, Enjoy By, the whole catalogue of super-hyped IPA/DIPAs, but me. Only one I've had out of that pantheon is Sucks.
    But anyways, here's my list:

    Ithaca Flower Power
    DFH 60min
    SN Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop Ale
    Founders Centennial
    Ballast Point Sculpin

    DFH 90min
    ST 2xIPA
    Lagunitas Sucks
    Founders Devil Dancer
    SN Hoptimum
  9. Little Sumpin Sumpin
    Head Hunter
    Racer 5

    If it makes you feel better, it took me until 2 weeks ago to have some Heady Topper and that was my first and only out of the bunch you listed.

  11. Appreciate the empathy; I'm sure there are just as many people who never get to try those as do, but eh. I'll get to try most eventually, tracking them down here and there. My next target is to make sure I reserve some KBS at the only spot that gets it in next release...
