Default $7.99 for DFH 120min IPA

I've had 60min IPA, great hop flavor, easy to drink, all around great IPA. Tonight I'm drinking 90min IPA for the first time. Took me a min to get past the 9% ABV, but over all great IPA, even through the alcohol content, hop character is still evident. I have not tried 120min IPA, but the local liquor store now has it in stock, but it is $7.99/12oz Bottle. They only sell it by the bottle. Not trying to be a cheap skate, Ill spend what ever for good beer, but that sounds like a rip off to me. So, my question is, is it worth it? I want to try it, but that sounds kind of steep, for only 1 bottle, thats like $48.00 a six pack. Sounds kind of fishy to me.

It is 20% abv so it is probably a good thing it isn' t like 7 bucks for a six pack or there would be a lot of incredibly drunk unsuspecting people. Most people I know don' t check the alcohol content on their beer (or know that different beers have different alcohol contents). It is tasty though.

Yeah, that makes it equivalent to a 4 pack of 5% brew... Not so bad, really...

It's $9.99/12 oz here, so I'd say that's a great deal.

"Worth" is totally subjective. What value do you place on trying it?
