    Ah, need I say more? Look for Superfluid to hit stores, this week.

    Superfluid is an American Double IPA with a large, but basic malt bill that explodes with resiny hop aromas! The hop flavors are the focus of this beer due to the lack of sweet specialty grains. Tasty qualities of citrus fruit and berries explode on the palate. Superfluid’s perfect bitterness resonates across the palate, complementing the awesome hop intensity. 9% ABV 100 IBU

    Hey @HopHeadHerman, do you guys ever have a plan to do a really hazy or unfiltered IPA? Short's does many different IPAs and one-off releases like Superfluid and such. It seems to me that an experiment with this type of beer would really suit your release model, and please a lot of folks in MI.

    And don't say never (cause we all know you'll be lying you traitors :wink:).

    Also, looking forward to grabbing a sixer of Superfluid!

    Hope we don't have the share this with non-MI markets. I plan on spending an entire paycheck on this.

    @HopHeadHerman , any info about the switch from 2011 Raisin Apollo being 9% to now being 15.7%?

    Both great beers, but I think I'd have to give the nod to this new version.

    A few too many extra raisins in the mix? :wink: Sounds like a happy accident to me.

    I'm still seeing it around a variety of places, but I wouldn't wait - this one typically doesn't last very long.

    I picked up a few 6-packs this week and can't wait to bust into one this weekend. One of the best and most unique DIPAs in Michigan. Probably my favorite specialty release from Short's.

    How much are people paying per sixer of Superfluid? I paid $15 which is the most I've ever spent on it

    12.99 and 13.99 on Macomb. Tasting excellent this year. Takes some of the sting out of not finding batch 5000

    Probably one of the best beers Short's makes. There is a quality to it that I can only describe as "a softness". Don't know what it is but I love it. I second the year round-abilitliness of it.

    But, there was Raisin Apollo :slight_smile:

    As delicious as ever. I don't know if more is being distributed than last year, but my usual place actually had sixers out on the shelves to purchase instead of two bottle limits this year. 14.99 for six pack, or 2.85/bottle.

    My local has had 6 cases on the floor for a week. Don't know if it is moving slow or they are re-stocking.
    I got a 6 pack, and will be getting more.

    I hope this is Short's theme for 2016. It has been nice knowing I don't have to run to my local bottle shops the day new releases get there.
