I'm new to expanding my horizons beyond macros (only cause I'm cheap). SN beers are always cheaper where I live than any other craft available so why not give it a try. It exceeded my expectations. Will definitely will be a familiar face in my fridge from now on. To pass on this would be to pass on an excellent IPA experience. This is gonna sound weird but I'm not a huge fan of the SN Pale Ale (that's blasphemy to some people I know LOL) and this to me taste so much better.
