    Glad it made it safe and everything looks good. Just a heads up, that Wulver is the barrel aged version as well, cheers!

    Do you mean RUM Barrel Aged? All Wulver is BA, just most is Bourbon BA and some is Rum BA.

    My box is expected to land on Tuesday, but they can just expect something like your box as they are pretty similar (not intentional).

    Final hint: If you plugged in target's address into google maps from my home, and you followed the shortest driving directions path, you would go through 6 states besides my target's and mine.

    Box dropped off at Fedex this morning. It wouldn't even fit in my sedan's trunk, had to ride in the front seat. A load of barelywine and other goodies headed my target's way for delivery on Thursday.

    Final hint A: You would go through 4 states to drive from me to my target not including our own states.
    B: There are more posts in this thread "Liked" by my target than posted by my target.
    C: My box, porch bomb though it is, should not be the most exciting thing to happen to my target this month.

    Cheers! Some of the IPAs were on your wants and others I tossed in since I promised at least 5 and couldn't get some from your wants that were fresh enough.
