    That's only 7.99 a bomber, pretty standard if not a good price. Why would that be a pass?

    The 15th was my favorite one and I've been waiting for it to come back. Guess it's fine I have to buy the other three. Never had the 5th or 10th and the Citracado was ok.

    Wow, no-hesitation purchase for me. Damn, with fresh hop season pretty much here too, Stone is killing me (in a good way, of course) with this release...or my bank account at least. 10th was my first Stone anniversary beer when I was just of legal age, getting into "microbrew", and would love to revisit. Plus 15 and 20 are awesome and haven't tried the 5th. Cheers!

    What's the story behind the description of the 5th Anniversary? The "lots of people said they had it but few did" part. Or is that the whole story?

    I live 18 miles from the brewery and I've been in at least 6 stores this week and have yet to find it. This 4pk was not at the Stone Oceanside store yesterday when I asked for it.

    I would buy it at $16 without question but I'm not a bomber buyer in general, at $32 it's an instant nope as that's a $26 sixer give or take
    I'm more excited about the Narwhal above and I'm a full blown hop head

    Seeing the print ad & the difference between a BA rating & a RateBeer rating:grinning:, still no regrets about NEVER having peeped their site. Besides I have Untappd for generous ratings:wink:. Speaking of, what's up w/someone checking in & NOT at least dropping a rating even if you're ticking how empty is that? Hope I see this in my nape of the woods, Costco seems to stock Stone stuff like this & price reasonably.

    Davis Beer Shop - $31
    BevMo - $25
    Total Wine - $15 with $1 coupon. I bought 4. Had all but the Citricado last night. The Escondido black IPA was spectacular.

    Ok for $15 thats less than $4/22 oz of inspired classic Stone DIPA's and this will go down as one of the biggest beer bargains I've ever had. This is great stuff for people who like Stone IPAs. Price point is quite variable though.

    Will be on the hunt for this....even at $32 its still a damn good price for 4/22oz beers....

    Just had the 20th last night and it was excellent....but wouldn't mind trying the other three.

    I bought two boxes last night. The Encores were bottled 8/17 and the 20th was bottled 8/19. Enjoy by date on the box is 11/15, for what it is worth.

    Found at Costco, 19.99 so I bought 2 boxes. That is basically 5$ ea for pretty killer beers. Mine were bottled on 8/28 and 8/29. Cracked the 5th Anny yesterday was very good, tonight will be 10th, which 10 years ago was the greatest beer I had ever had up to that point.
