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
Lol 2 posts per month! I hope the op gets what he wants! But I do find it funny that people want to trade for " over rated ipas" and get all butt hurt when people defend the beer. If these beers/ipas are so overrated then why are you trying to trade for them? Just so you can be just like everyone else

The guy had everyones sympathy, even zamamans....then he posted something just as douchy as zamas drunk post, which zama admitted was too harsh. Not gonna win the op many points.

Hope he gets the trade done, but he didnt make it easier on himself.

I've had pte and pty. They are two of the best beers ever made. I also had both the beers in the OP. The Enjoy by was epic. Very drinkable. The RuinTen is an insane, to-the-limit hop/alco bomb. Never had heady but would love to try it. I'm just trying to not expect too much so I can be surprised which is hard with all of the praise it gets. Never said either of these were not good. In the end it's still just a beer. Not worth driving across the country to get one.

Pliny is what made a lot of the new "big" ipas what they are and is still solid. It was an extreme IPA in comparison to most a few years ago. It just happens to be that a lot of other breweries have stepped up and make comparable hopped-bombs (Heady, abrasive, Ghandi Bot, etc). Pliny is still excellent, but the gap between it and other IPAs is disappearing.

Oh, and I would rather have Enjoy By than Pliny for consumption, price and volume. Toss in a Ruinten and that is a steal. IMO it should at least be 2:2, good luck OP.

Everything gets turned into political debate.
I want a certain beer that I cannot get, I have certain beers to trade for said beer. If you'd like to trade, please post. If not, that's fine as well. :]

Hope you all enjoy a good beer today!

Got my hands on another of each. Pricey beers honestly, but I love the joy of trading. So it's totally worth it. Drink on!
