    id go two hearted, hopslam, oracle. TH and hopslam are probably tied for me in taste, but considering i can get TH for half the price of hopslam, and can get it year round, its by far a better deal.

    never had hopsolution tho

    yah, dont think we get this. didnt get it last year either. dont worry tho, IMO hop whore by tyranena is almost identical. probably not as much of a palate-wrecker, but that might make it better

    Guy offered to sell me one for $5 (same place that charges $10 for KBS), I said no. He seemed offended saying he's seen it for a lot more elsewhere.

    I got a case at the brewery the day after it was released in bottles. I think the price per bottle came out to about $2.50. I've got a couple left if anyone wants to trade.

    I got REALLY LUCKY and picked up 2 cases ($132 w/ tax) @ Bell's General Store a few weeks ago (they only had 10 cs. left at the time). I've heard there will be no bottles in IL this year, and when I picked up the 2 cs. a few weeks ago @ the General Store, they said that they will not likely get any more this year either...

    Oracle is a one time deal, no second/third/etc bottling run like Hopslam. I would be shocked to see more bottles. On tap is a different story, it pops up every now and again and that is what I count on.
