Never see it around here locally, is it worth $17 a bottle? What does it go for other areas?
Never had it, but I personally don't think any IPA/IIPA is worth $17 a bottle.
Just read this in the first review on the beer's profile - 'This bottle was $17 here, but is available for half that price in Kentucky.'
I paid $18 (i had no idea until i looked at my receipt). It's certainly not a "memorable" beer but it's good.
Thank you, definitely not paying that.
Not worth it at all
7.6% rotating IPA with a score of 87. I wouldn't spend that much on it.
We do not see a lot of their beers but the ones I have had I do not think warrant the price - for me anyway.
These threads keep popping up (and are sometimes deleted).
I really love some of the beers that Against the Grain puts out. Great stuff. I've mainly had them on draught.
I wonder if their current position in the marketplace will work out for them in the long run. I expect to see many of their beers not moving from shelves. I'm guessing that the asking prices have a lot to do with the distributor, but I don't know.
If you're willing to pay for it, then it's worth it.
You know, I asked the question because I thought my local shop was trying to rip me off, but after doing a bit of research on here, it seems like the price isn't too far off. $17 for a 22oz IPA with no bottle dating.... Unreal.
I think I paid ~$14.99 or so for it, and even then, I felt like I had been taken for a ride.
Fact based rationale steeped in logic - we need more of this, and less emotion-driven impetuous pitchfork wielding!
It's 20 bucks out here in LA -
I just saw that at the store yesterday...
I decided not to purchase it as I could get 8 GREAT IIPA's for that price. I wouldn't pay that much for the #1 rated IIPA in the world.
Nope. It's $8/bottle in Louisville, which seems about right.
Against the Grain has some balls charging what they do. F them
Don't hate on them, they probably got their idea for pricing from FiftyFifty Brewing Co...
AtG doesn't set the pricing you see on the shelf. I'm no expert on the matter, but I believe AtG sells their beer at whatever cost to the distributor who in turn adds whatever margin they choose before selling to the retailer. That is why you see such widely varied prices for the beer. Here in Louisville it's under $10/bottle. So that extra $7 or whatever comes from people past AtG.
I remember seeing that show up in a bottle shop here for the first time. Interesting label, brewery I've heard of with a good rep, Citra hops, everything looked great until the price tag. There's no way.
I feel like the market is opening up more and more to expensive bombers, but this is really pushing it. I can get a sixer of Sculpin for less than that.
That is outrageous for an IPA... better be barrel-aged for that price!
You know it's expensive when it cost more than Sculpin, an already overpriced IPA...
Wait a minute. You're saying that BeerAdvocate needs MORE judgements of worth based solely on ABV and a score #? No thanks.
Was stupid enough to purchase 2 bottles. Completely over-rated.
No way. It was good, but no way would I pay for it again.
I have been tempted to try a few of their beers, but I see these single hop IPAs and brown ales on shelf for $15 (sometimes more) and pass. They are gonna sit on the shelves here in CT for awhile, I think.
paid $20 on long island, sucked.
You're all in Hollywood and can afford it!
You guys... dropping $8 on a bomber and that's normal...
must be nice being rich.
I will admit, this year alone, I have spent $9 on a bomber of ST's Creme Brulee. Worth it, but IDK if I would ever do it again.
I am by no means rich or even close, however I am able to budget myself on things that ALLOW me to afford bombers, as over priced as they may be. Occasionally I do spend more than what I should...like the time I didnt eat for a week after buying the case of Enjoy By last month :
With so many great IPAs available, not sure why we would need to spend that much on one. Seems like that would be a simple NO
It was decent but not even worth the $10 my buddy paid for it.
How much is Sculpin in CA? I paid $7 for a 22oz bottle at Costco in Chicago, thought it was a steal.
I give 'em credit for reading the market, though -- "People are wetting their pants over all the Citra bombs lately. Let's get in on this!"
Fret not, dear old Simcoe, Centennial, et. al. - I still love you!
