    Cigar City Papaya IPA - much better. Jai-lai IPA mixed with papayas. The slight fruit really cuts the hops nicely. This isn't as good as Apri-Hop in the "fruity IPA" department, but I'd say its running second.

    Is this a fair trade...?

    I give a 4-pack of 2011 KBS in exchange for a 4-pack of 2008 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout?

    12oz bottles

    thanks

    Need your help guys: Cokey McCokeface had over one of his "guests" (read:crackheads) and he wiped out all the beers that I had traded for. If anyone would be kind enough to try and track down some of this shit so I can replenish my stocks I would be grateful.

    $ wise, yes. square deal for 2 similar beers. i like them both. a lot. beer nerds will try to rationalize how KBS is worth more $$$ than bourbon county. seen it before. ridiculous.

    This is what happens when you're trapped inside an apartment with a cokehead.

    How much does Parabola cost in the store? Can't seem to find it in NYC.

    Trying to figure out how much I am going to have to pay on ebay, etc...

    Relocating to the Pacific Northwest. What are some regional recs?

    I like APAs but not most IPAs. I like most stouts, porters, and dark beers, especially bourbon varietals. I like reds, ambers, german-style lagers, but not wheats.

    edit: bonus points for availability at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.

    Anyone tried DFH's new beer with peach concentrate in it? I want to try it. If anyone wants to buy my homebrew I'll sell it to you for a very reasonable price!

    This is probably my favorite beer. I can't fathom how you don't like this...[​IMG]
