    Snake Handler. Always the same whenever I have it. Great bitterness with a nice crisp clean, finish.

    90 minute, and that isn't necessarily a good thing.

    Don't know about hitting the shelves within ten days but Sneaky Pete has always struck me as being very consistent.

    Did anyone read the OP's caveat?

    Some of these answers confuse me. Who the hell is finding fresh Double Jack 100% of the time? Even folks in Paso have old shit on the shelves!

    As many people have mentioned, Dirtwolf. It's about as consistent as any DIPA I've ever had. Heady and Sculpin both have a high level of consistancey.

    90 Minute and Double Jack.
    Some others, even better ones, just don't always hit the spot for me. I'm not sure if it's the beer tasting different or me just not always liking that flavor, though.
    Those two always taste the same and I always love them, though.

    New Glarus Scream (or any New Glarus beer for that matter)

    I have drank more New Glarus then all other breweries combined and can honestly say I have never had a bad 6 or 4 pack or bottle for that matter.

    Funny, I would put Pliny on the complete opposite end of the spectrum as this. I've had bottles that were amazing, and what I was expecting, and then I've had bottles that were very blasé. In my experience (I've maybe had 20ish bottles), Pliny bottles have varied big time.

    Where are people saying sucks? Has anyone noticed that it tastes different? Maybe it is just me.

    I've had almost every 32oz batch since it came out and it just tasted different than when it was a seasonal. The Born Yesterday tasted JUST like the Sucks I remember when it came out originally in 2011/2012.

    I seem to remember sucks using a limited hop variety, making it exclusively seasonal. Anyone remember this?

    They don't even have the same (hop) schedule for every batch. - It simply cannot taste the same every time.
    The hop schedule changes based on the hops he can get. he runs out every year.
    The beer at the end of the hop season tastes nothing like the beer at the beginning of the hop season.
    I'm drinking one now that has a distinct onion flavor. Summit hops maybe?
