    mmmmmm…Racer 5. Widely available, affordable, and a tasty example of a classic WC IPA

    I can see Jai Alai as #1. That beer never disappoints for a shelfie IPA and IMO it’s not falling off as fast as I used to remember from...

    It has been my very consistent experience with Jai Alai that the hop aroma/flavor 'drops off a cliff' very quickly with this beer. I...

    Oh, so 5 bucks for a can that would equate to 4 bucks within a four-pack. I suppose an equivalent mix-pack price of 20 bucks is not...
