    Zeus help us all if this release happens on Dec 31st, when most people have the day off. It will be a Chicago-style, truck chasing, shit show.

    Or put in some OT because all these special releases are taxing the funds.

    According to FB there are more BA Hellfighter bottled than than Frag and Bodacious. Not combined but a larger batch than each.

    MMMMmmm..... I will probably Azzy 2 or 3 bottles of this.

    Going to establish my F.U.N. collection (1st batch beauties too).
    Have a Bodacious and a Fragile in storage.

    Time to add this gem to the collection.

    Same here! Current stash is 1 Bodacius, 4 Frag and I'm hoping to score some BA Hellfighter as well. My wallet is hurting from all these damn releases.

    Think I'm going to make my wife get involved with finding some of this... or at least tagging along to get a bottle or two...

    Maybe I'll just have my entire family over the age of 21 at Specs with me... since no one else drinks craft beer, I'll be the big winner. (sadly this will never happen, but I can dream)

    I hope so... but I'll end up at a bay area specs or HEB where there will be a one bottle limit I'm sure. Which I guess will help me out, but I love this beer.... and would like to have three bottles to spread out over the next year..sigh..:( :D

    At 15 bucks a bottle, 3 would be my limit if I can find it, get it.... I've had it a couple of times at Karbach and around town.. and once had the cherry BB Hellfighter... which was also great.

    Even thought I am not a sour fan, I'm going to see what this beer is all about. Curiosity has this cat.
