    Hint. My target had updated wants several times (lots actually) and had added one I will hit, and removed one I was going to send.

    Keep the hints coming! I'm down to 7 potential senders

    Has there still only been one haul?

    My target will be getting his box 5 days from next Monday (pseudo hint)

    Here's another hint: My target is not actively participating in this thread. That should eliminate a few people.

    This one's been done, and not to sound like Oprah ("And you get a Heady Topper. And YOU get a Heady Topper"), but if my target likes this, I will cram as much fresh Heady Topper into the box as will fit. I'm sure given enough time, it will age into a fine happy barleywine.

    Final Hint: I'm pretty sure my target has figured me out but I don't give a bleep! I do what I want!

    I haven't said anything in this thread yet. I am very entertained though. My wife and I are awaiting the imminent arrival of our first child and things are ridiculously busy. I can't wait to see how this all plays out. Cheers.

    Recapping my hints and adding more.

    1. Shipping East
    2. My target is also shipping East
    3. My targets state borders 4 other states
    4. The largest city is not the capital
    5. My target did like the post that will earn them 5 IPAs / DIPAs from their want list (unfortunately, I was unable to locate a few that were fresh - so I have to modify my promise to be 5 IPAs / DIPAs, some of which are on their wants)
    6. Their state does get Deschutes distribution, so I won't be sending Mirror Mirror - they'll have to make due with Mother of all Storms

    As soon as I get another bottle, I'll ship out. 2nd week of may. I may have gone a bit overboard ... 284 oz of beer, 4.3 average with a couple 100 pointers in there. Sorry; I hope you can forgive me.

    If I was your target, and you pulled this type of shit, then I would retaliate.

    Hint #3 I've been way too busy to post more hints, or to spend any time looking at the other hints to figure out who my sender is...sorry!

    Hint #4 My target's avatar IS an actual photograph.

    Hint #5 My target's location by map coordinates is between 20 and 40 degrees away from me (combined West and either North or South) (despite the wide range, this is actually a pretty good hint)

    I can finally post here!

    I'd like to publicly thank @ktenneydenver for the awesome box! I was excited initially, and have only gotten more so as I've looked into the contents. Obviously, if I got the first haul he's bang-on for shipping.

    My target already got his shipping info, since I sent his package out Tuesday. Hopefully, we'll get some beer porn tonight! I hope that a box full of out of distro goodness will make up for a wants list that is dreadfully short of beer in my area...

    I wish I could have played more hint games, but c'est la vie. Next time.

    It's like the cold war replayed substituting beer for tactical nukes: mutually assured destruction ...

    I've got my list narrowed down to 9, but i'm starting to think I eliminated someone prematurely... BM sent to who I think is my sender.

    I'm up for some destruction. 284 oz is enough to destroy a porch. I'm planning something very similar.

    Hint: my target was browsing the iso:ft boards sometime today before this post.

    Hell on wood is some tasty stuff!

    Alright time for another hint! my target lives in a state that touches the Atlantic Ocean

    another clue on the beers within. the only beer that is not a Bwine is a closely related style, an old ale.

    I think I know who my sender is. Still 3/4 possible senders, but 1 gut feeling.

    I also believe my target is on to me, so I'll throw it out there - target, do you want extras of beers you have in your 'gots' that aren't distro'd in your state bordering the Pacific?

    Okay, got my box packed up but I will be heading out tomorrow. The gf is going to drop it off for me at the beginning of the week though most likely, so my target should be getting their box by the end of the week. Hint: my target's profile pic of a "person"
