    But anyways, here's my list:

    Ithaca Flower Power
    DFH 60min
    SN Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop Ale
    Founders Centennial
    Ballast Point Sculpin

    DFH 90min

    If it makes you feel better, it took me until 2 weeks ago to have some Heady Topper and that was my first and only out of the bunch you listed.

    Appreciate the empathy; I'm sure there are just as many people who never get to try those as do, but eh. I'll get to try most eventually, tracking them down here and there. My next target is to make sure I reserve some KBS at the only spot that gets it in next release...

    You're not alone! I'm getting my first ever 4-pack of Heady on Monday, and while the store I work at does theoretically stock Enjoy By when we can get it, I'm low enough on the totem pole that I've only ever gotten a shot at it once :slight_frown:

    Good call on the Citra. I didn't list it because technically it's a APA, but it's one of my favorites. Also So Hoppy to Wheat you by Oddsides is excellent.
