    I grabbed two bombers at Two Brothers Roundhouse around lunchtime today. Looked like maybe 20 bottles at best when I was there. They didn't have anything posted about a limit. I'm sure I could have bought them all if I was a hoarder. I called before I went over there and the hostess had no idea what the hell I was even asking about. From the positive reviews this may be my Friday night bomber during March Madness since it's uber fresh now.

    Picked up a few at Whole Foods in south OC. I too was skeptical of the pairing. Although its amber in color, by no means is the Dayman a black IPA. The aromatics are very expressive with dark roast coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor is piney crisp and definitely Citra hop dominated but the coffee makes a strong comeback on the long finish. Given my low expectations, I'm shocked how much I love this beer. If you are lucky enough to find it, do yourself a favor and buy some.

    I picked up 4 bottles at the Pasadena company store along with some 4.20. I can't wait to try one since I'm a smug bastard about my coffee.

    It came out on the 18th and it takes about a month to get over here to MD. That is ridiculous. I am still waiting on the Oak-Smoked OG.

    I've been told you needed to grow up with a Jewish mother. I didn't, and I share your opinion on the show.

    Also, Stone said on Facebook that the name isn't an Always Sunny reference; it's the counterpart to Aleman's Dunkel, Nightman.

    SoCalers, if you are in the LA/Riverside area, Liquorama in Upland has what looks to be most of a case sitting behind the cash register along with a bunch of Knuckle Sandwich, 4 bottles of Sanctification and a bottle of Supplication. Be warned that they are not cold!

    Grabbed two today. Hope this is like Noble Aleworks Naughty sauce, cause that beer was WOW good. Such a mind screw drinking a yellow hoppy beer with a coffee roast. From the posted pics this one looks more copper in color.

    Thanks, I picked up the Supplication and 2 bottles of Dayman. Good price on the Knuckle Sandwich, but I had it on tap and I'm not into malty DIPAs.

    Coffee IPA doesn't sound at all "outside the box" to me. IPAs are part of Stone's flagship, and coffee beers are wildly popular. Seemed pretty logical that they'd be paired up.

    That said, I've never had a chance to try it, and I'm not sure how challenging it would be to make it. So perhaps it's quite the feat to actually pull it off from a production standpoint. But the idea itself? Eh, doesn't strike me as anything earth shattering.

    I didn't pull the trigger on this. It just doesn't sound like a good mix. However, I do like hearing the opinions here.

    I located the last one of these at the Total Wine nearby. Its chilling in the fridge, but as luck would have it, I have to head out of town for several days. This is unacceptable world.

    First, this beer was very unique in an awesome way. For some reason I thought it would be darker. It tasted very IPAish but still had a definite coffee taste. It strangely worked really well.

    Second, Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the funniest shows ever, if you enjoy lots of uncomfortable arguing, which do. Larry David is my hero.
