just got word from my shop, Parabola and Hoptimum in stock. Thank god it's payday.
That's nice... but what about the beer!?
hahahahahaha you funny
Sorry, I'll be okay once Hoptimum shows up in my Sacramento area liquor stores..
While this isn't a whale and I'll eventually get a case, I hate you all who have it now.
Please tell me you are joking? This beer would be bad after 6 months to a year
For the love of god, please don't let this become a whale. It helps that they probably brew too much of it for it to be a whale.
Also looking forward to Southern Hemisphere Harvest trickling out here soon, too.
Wegmans in allentown pa on Tilghman St had 4 packs in the cooler. Enjoying 1 right now. I think I like it, ha!
It's cool. My wife was born and raised in Chico. So she doesn't have to twist my arm to go "home".
Just had it back to back with a Double Trouble. Thought the Hoptimum was alright but that the Double Trouble was much much better.
If I can find it on the shelf in the burbs of Pennsylvania I'd imagine you could find something in California haha.
You'd think, wouldn't ya?! But alas!!!
It's cool, I've got Parabola.
I felt the opposite. The double trouble was well balanced but too malty for me as an iipa...not saying I dont really like it, I just love the layers of hop flavors that you get with Hoptimum. Cheers!
Still waiting for both of these to hit the shelves in VA. At least it's on the east coast.
No sightings yet in my two local spots... Kinda disappointed.
They're here now.
I didnt think that this year hid that 10% abv as well as last year. That said, still very good and at $9.99/4 pack, a great deal
Are you on Long Island?
Just landed north of Chicagoland in Lake County, picked up a couple of 4 pks, chilling them now :0)
nope, far from it man. Outside of Syracuse.
ORLY? where's your shop with said stock in it?
Right on the money, SN makes very good beer at a great price point, but I'm on the like side when it comes to SN.
Landed in Pensacola yesterday, but bottled date is early March. Tasted fine, but will be looking for fresher stocks.
Wonder why it took 2 months to hit the sales floor, SN delivers everywhere.
Wondering the same thing... This was the first shop to get it. I just bought one. Had almost zero nose. Will wait to get more if I find something newer.
Which shop had it, Hopjacks Filling Station?
Yup. Ritchey's will be getting it soon.
Which Ritchey's do you frequent? I have a condo in Perdido Key and am still trying to find the best craft beer places.
picked up a 4 pack yesterday at Albany, CA BevMo. They looked to have plenty in stock. Enjoying one now.
Was excited to see it at my local shop.
Always a great beer. I loved it the first year in 24oz bottles. First time I didn't know what I was up against until I tried to stand up after killing a bottle!
Hoptimum in the fridge. Having some friends over and about to get Hoptivated.
Richeys on Creighton and 9th has by far the bigger selection. Great selection actually. I most frequent the one om Gregory downtown. Smaller selection, but still solid. They'll both have Hoptimum soon. And Founders probably in about 10 days.
Perdido is tough. My parents live on Innerarity Pt. Check out Anna's fine wines next time you go by Joe Pattis. She has some great beer (last one to have Jai Alai in stock last week). Little expensive though.
I know it's been in the St. Louis area since last Friday. Already been through three 4 pks.
Picked a 4 pack up today for $ 9.99, will be drinking it very soon.
I just got a 4-pack. Fridge is packed, and I don't have a beer fridge, so I'm probably putting these in one at a time.
I have no idea what to expect from this beer other than a metric fuckton of hops. I'm feeling a very strange combination of trepidation and excitement.
Anybody see this in San Francisco yet? I should go to Florida and buy some hahaha.
Whole Foods in VB has it...lots of it.
If you're in RVA, check out Corks 'n' Kegs. TW or OUAV might still have some left.
I'm in Newport News. I'll check tomorrow after the LPGA event. I hope I can grab a few 4pks! Meanwhile, I'll enjoy this KBS!
