its decent, it isnt HF by any stretch of the imagination, and id give the nod to treehouse/blue lobster for the hoppy beers. I tried 6 out of 8 offerings in a 4oz format and was not impressed, granted it was not their strongest lineup according to BA.
Went with 2 750s swing tops of their flagg ship pale and saison. Both were 4.8% and made for great easy drinking during the wedding I went to yesterday where it was upper 70s-low 80s.
They tasted better the second day so maybe my taste buds were just off on thursday, as I am at the tale end of a cold.
I cant answer if it is worth shipping unless I know where your from so I can have some semblance of comparison.
Swing tops will last a few weeks if stored properly, shipping makes things a bit hairy (and I havent had a growler shipped to me so I cant speak to how much it changes if it hasnt been in a fridge)
It is however better to drink these asap and I havent had a growler in my fridge over 2 weeks....that being said it was still as fresh as the day I bought it because the swing top does a great job of keeping the air out....screw tops are not the best and TH has those for their larger growler format.
