    I heard Mango Magnifico hit some of the DC Whole Foods today, though I have not personally confirmed this.

    I was just at P Street and Conn Ave. It wasn't on the shelves and no one was around to ask about it at either spot.

    PS - Conn Ave said you (starrdogg) stopped by. If I see that bottle again I will definitely let you know.

    Total Wine in McLean (according to the website) has both.

    Cocoanut is at P St. Didn't see Mango there, though perhaps it's in the back. They also have a couple of new breweries on the shelves -- Iron Fist from CA and Backpocket from IA (never heard of this one, though Randy says they're good).

    Both are at Sterling Total Wine.

    The founder's has a one bottle limit.

    Stone has no limit.

    Westover has both, and they are $$$ $22 for the Mango (my brother got one at TW in Alexandria for $12.99. They also had the Coconut, $11.99, my brother got one at TW for $6.99) I didn't not buy them at Westover and will not be going back there. Arrowine has the Mango for $15. One case.

    I picked up a bottle of the Mango at Westover, and while it seemed expensive, I had no idea what this beer was selling for elsewhere, so I went ahead with the purchase. Now learning what other places are selling this for, I'm pretty damn angry. That will likely be the last beer I ever buy from that store.

    Westover, 1 West Dupont, and the Perfect Pour. Three biggest culprits of gouging, every time. Rule of them, just never shop at any of them.

    Went to Conn Ave, saw Iron Fist Velvet Glove for 12. Walked down the street, same day to 1 West out of curiosity, going for 25 at the moment there.

    I swore off 1 West Dupont and Perfect Pour long ago, but I didn't realize Westover was in their league until now. Westover charges fairly normal prices for their regular beers, which is how I got thrown off, but apparently limited releases get jacked up to insane prices.

    Don't forget Lost Dog Cafe and to some extent Chevy Chase W&L

    Chevy chase has always been pricey but lately some of their stock seems to get jacked high.

    I really want to start complaining to distributors. If they gouge they shouldn't get the contracts for orders

    I talked to Randy at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and he said that he was charging more for Hopslam because people were buying him out and selling it for profit, leaving none for his customers in the store. Larry Bell's son (attends Georgetown U) visited P St. and saw the price He reported the price to Larry Bell and Larry gave Randy shit without hearing him out so Randy dropped Bell's from his inventory completely. Sad that people can't just talk and figure it out since Randy is a good dude brah.

    Word on the street is that Rodman's has a couple Founders Mango left. Don't buy them all before I get one!

    UPDATE: A complaint was made on 1 West's Facebook page regarding their charging 14$ for Pumking and they publicly agreed to lower the price! Quick, someone post about the Iron Fist they are selling for 25$ that Conn Ave is asking 13$ for!

    I tweeted at both Westover and Founders last night complaining about the price gouging on the Mango, but no response from either party. Alas.

    The sad thing in most of these situations is that these retailers are paying the same price to the distributor. Caveat Emptor.

    WF Fairfax has both. $8 for RR and $14 for MM. 1 bottle limit on the latter. They probably have about 10 left.

    Glad I didn't get my Mango at WM because that was the first drain pour I have had in a long time. The only other times I can remember having to dump a beer was because they were way over carbed. The sweetness + the lingering heat was to much for me. And I like spicy food just not in my beer I guess. The only way I could see myself getting through a glass of it is with a food pairing. Maybe some type of mexican food would go with it. I would suggest opening this one with a couple people.

    I thought the coconut Ipa was good not great. Especially when you compare it to the enjoy by's. Probably wouldn't buy another one but don't regret the purchase at all.

    I thought about my post and would like to say one other thing. The beer is exactly as advertised. The ingredients listed on the bottle are what you get. So I don't think Founders made a bad beer. I think I made a bad decision buying it. I have had other beers with heat in them. The darker ones where it has been more subtle I have liked. The others where it is in your face I haven't. So I should of read a few reviews before purchasing this one.

    When I was at TW Alexandria, I picked up two of each.. I also picked up two of New Belgium's Cococunt Curry Hefeweizen, to have side-by-side with the R&R... Wow, the New Belgium has to be the worst beer I've ever had! Undrinkable. They're selling for 7.99 if anyone's curious. Acutally! I bought two so I have one left, if anyone wants it! haha

    I've heard it won't hit MD for at least another week. No Founder's in MD though.

    Randy is a good guy, indeed! I've know him since the store opened give or take. And in fact my memory takes me back to a time when he may not have run the beer section but cheeses? (and he knew them well.) Knowledgeable, attentive, all around a good professional... Surprised this happened with Bells, though. Pretty sure he had Oberon minikegs, and at least sixers of Two Hearted a few days ago?

    BTW, both (coconut and mango offerings) were openly displayed at the WP Foggy Bottom too, last.. Thursday?
    To me the IPA is neat, rather pungent with a nice toasty coconut profile (really nicely done if one digs that edge). The mango was a bit much for me, but I appreciate the innovation: distinct mango in a hefty brew that does not feel that heavy with a rather hot, but not overwhelming, warm and lingering finish. Both well worth a try (I'd pick up a Stone CIPA well ahead of the other one.)

    There was definitely a large stack of oberon sixers over by produce when it came out earlier this summer.
