Stone Enjoy By 07/04 & RuinTen
 
I have one of each. I am mostly interested in PtE. If not, any other over-rated IPA would do fine.
Let me know what you have..
Thanks!

Wow just wow.... First off your kinda asking for charity since people that can get pte can get stone and people that got heady can get any IPA easily. But asking for us to throw you a bone is totally cool but than coming off like a douche and insulting the beers you want us to be generous with by calling them "over-rated" ipas is not how you get trade partners. Having had all of your beers pte and heady are not over rated and are better than all of the mentioned beers. I mean they won't cure your hemroids but they are the best Ipas in the world. (Granted the number two spot probably doesn't belong to pte as its probably number 3-4)


Thus ends my thread ****ting.

While zama spoke a tad harsh, his point is still valid. I think you would have better luck getting pliny by offering up something local to you that a guy buying pliny won't see right next the pliny when he buys it.

There is always the chance that someone in cali missed out on the stone beers, but its pretty plentiful out there and anyone who wanted it likely got it.

I don't know where you live, but if you want some help on what someone might like for a pliny trade, let us know your state and we can offer up suggestions to help you get it done.

I think his "over-rated IPA" comment was tongue in cheek, dont read too much into it. OP may not know that this batch of Enjoy By is all over CA atm. Considering each batch is limited availability I dont think he is asking for charity at all.

Yea, ZamaMan, that was a bit excessive. Let the guy scope out his trades, we dont want this to turn into BA where its a flame fest when people post up a trade.

Lol I was drinking off the kegerator last night as you can tell so I was pretty gone :tank:

Yeah I did come off a bit harsh but the idea behind my post I stand by. Maybe he was being tounge in check but on the internet that's hard to tell unfortunately. But in general putting down a beer you need help getting is not the way to go.

Anyways hope the op gets some

Op was right. These beers are overrated. Even the best beer in the world doesn't deserve the type of praise these get. The way they get hyped up ruins the experience of finally getting to try one. I don't think overrated is a put down at all.

First of all ZamaMan,
I don't appreciate the negativity you're bringing.
I am not, in any way, asking for charity.
Stone's Enjoy By and RuinTen are great beers and I believe that both of them for one Pliny is fair. If you don't think so then keep your drunken opinions to yourself.
I understand that the beers I have for trade aren't at the same level as Pliny, but PtE is no longer available here in WA state.
I stand by my statement that what people consider the "top 3" ipa's are just that, over-rated. Nothing negative, it's just too hyped.
I've been drinking ipa's for years and years. I also was born and raised in Yakima Valley so I don't appreciate the snobbish way you came off. I may have very few post counts, but that means very little besides my probability of not being a rip-off.

ANYWAYS, if there is anyone willing to do some trades for "famous" IPA's (better?) than let me know, as I'd be happy to trade.

Thank you
