    Is that expensive? As far as price goes it is pretty much in line with any other world class DIPA.

    I guess I didn't take into account that it was 24 bottles. But still that is a lot of IPA. The next time in on the coast I guess I will have to stop into Brouwers and try some!

    I was in Louisville this weekend and had to try some West Sixth IPA. AWESOME! Picked up a couple beers of fame and a Bolt Cutter too mostly because I have disposable income.

    Picked this up at the local convenient store after getting a tip they had them. $9.99 for a 750ml bottle and the glass. Thinking I got a deal on this one...

    I think you did get a deal. Around here you can usually get 2bottles for 9.99 before tax and deposit. Glass and bottle for 10 seems very fair.

    I didn't think this version was that great. To me it was some coffee fading into the regular bcbs.

    You made the right choice with the lava. I brought a shitload back from Iceland and it didn't last me six months. I didn't know it was distributed to the U.S. at the time.
