    The hype never left. Monkish always sells out the day of, so whether it be one hour, two hours, three hours, it sells out. Maybe one or two times were it lasted til next day.

    My first cans since Float Like Gravity. This sold out very quick, caught the alert as I was leaving West LA and probably got there with about 30 cases left at 12:45-ish. This is good at this young age.

    I cannot disagree with you about MT, not saying they are better but they have stepped up their game BIG time, hard to top their hazies recently and some like DDH MT5 ! and this months Unlike Birds and Tiger Millionaire are better than some Monkish DIPA/TIPAs.

    Cheers,

    Interestingly, the statement regarding pour limit was no longer on the board. I noticed this but forgot to ask about it

    Also, y'all need to get their new quad. Shit's dope, yo...full of clout...and cred...yo....

    Guys, it sold out because of f simple math and people easily expected the release today. Just like the last time a Friday release sold out in a couple hours. They said there would be two releases this week and they haven’t had one, so with only 3 days left in the week and one of those being Sunday it was obvious the release was happening.

    The math doesn’t do it for me. I’ve been in line where they estimated about 100 in line and it usually takes 45 min to an hour to get through. 160 cases is enough for 320 people to get full allotments. I’m still of the opinion that they either became hyper efficient with the line or there are some sort of shenanigans going on. Does not compute.

    Think for a minute, 210 of the approximately 360 allotments were gone after 45 minutes.

    Ok so you’re saying that the line got much more efficient than before. Not unbelievable. In fact it’s one of the scenarios I speculated. I was really just wondering if they in fact become more efficient.

    OTB Devotee (486) Sep 2, 2011 California

    Friday releases are unique. Usually there are the 50-70 lot lizards who come early everyday in line at opening and then it's just a steady flow of people. There are 4 check out stations so they can move product pretty quickly.

    What are you getting at? You think they lied about how much they made or have a bunch more sitting around or something?

    I don’t think they lied. I was just trying to figure if the lines got much more efficient. @OTB indicated that there are now 4 checkout stations. Last time I was there there were only 2. That would explain it.

    Whatta about that electric counter release at 9am to throw off the hazebroz? The haze game is getting more competitive now with electric contending...

    Anyone else wait in line for a few hours like a ding dong only to find that it was available throughout the afternoon with no line? I did. Both beers are good though, can't say I like one more than the other but happy I was able to pick up both.

    I was able to walk in at 4:30p with zero line and pick up 4-4pks of Walkman. I wish monkish was always this easy lol

    I did that Friday too, and yesterday afternoon I grabbed a couple 4 packs with nobody there. The beers are good, not blow you away good which leads me to my next point. We did a little sharing last night with the 3 new Monkish releases and two new MT beers, Unlike Birds and Tiger Millionaire. All six of us liked the MT beers more, and Tiger Millionaire was the best of the bunch.IMHO there is a lot of parody now when it comes to west coast haze, which is a very good thing for consumers, there's a reason you can walk into Monkish 7 hours after opening and buy cans.

    Yup, that was likely the last time I stand in line at Monkish. The beers are good but I preferred both DDH MT5! and Stencil Crew to either of the Monkish releases from yesterday. I can say the same when I had them fresh as well if one were to argue that they might be too 'green'. I haven't had Tiger or the recent Unlike Birds (had on draft before cans) but will grab a 4 pack when I do my bottle pickups next week.

    I'm feeling confident that MT will scratch my IPA can itch moving forward. Monkish is still great though and I'll be happy when I stumble upon cans or get a growler fill.

    Just wait until you taste Unlike Birds and Tiger Millionaire, two more stellar examples from MT. I like Monkish, but there are so many other well crafted beers of that category that are as good if not better and a hell of a lot easier to acquire.

    This is exactly how I feel about Electric & Sat morning Monkish releases ... I’m just completely over the shitshow surrounding these releases. Agreed, Modern Times and here locally in OC, Green Cheek, will scratch that hazy itch.

    LOL, actually both are applicable in the usage, parody is also used to describe the imitation of a style, parity often is used, as you noted, to show equality, so which witch is which ?

    And from a grammar fan, it's parity, not its parity :grimacing:. The latter is the possessive.

    So there was one I could drink huh Andrew ?, it seems all their beers have a ton of milk sugars and dairy adjuncts which I don't do. One of these days I'll get a can that I can drink and see what all the hype is about :sunglasses:

    I mean, they still sold 500+ cases of beer on-site within 1 business day yesterday. That’s still a very sizable demand if you ask me. Not to say there’s not competition, but still. I think any place selling that much beer in one day is doing pretty damn well.
