Picked up my first 6 pack today. 20.99 for a sixer.

first impression:
EXPENSIVE!

second impression:
Smells like it leaked out of God's ass

third impression:
nice sweet flavor that helps enhance the hoppy flavor

ME LIKEY

LOL. Still trying to figure out if this is an insult or compliment.

I need to pick up some of this. Unfortunately being in college without an income it comes in a bit too costly for me at the time being.

aw man, so i have absolutly nothing to do today and 3 hopslams left

i just woke up though and i always feel guilty cracking a beer within the first 30mins or an hour of being up - i feel like those old guys you see at the apple bees bar at 11 30 am on a sunday morning.

would this be bad of me?

i dont know where you go to school and how tough your major/schedule is this semester but i am still in school too and manage to deliver pizza a few days a week to make that extra money for things like beer and other unmentionables.

maybe that is somethign you might want to look into

nothing easier then delivering pizza to your peers - most of the time they will invite you to 'get blazed' or have a shot - on top of tipping you

I LOOOOVVVEEEE Hopslam! But hate the price. $17.99 plus tax on a sixer?!!??! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE SH*TTING ME! Last year it was so much cheaper, like $14.99, and I remember the year before it was cheaper than that. What gives?! I refuse to pay for that, it's outragous.

That works out to $3.00 per beer. Do you also refuse to pay more than $3.00 per drink at the bar or stadium?

I'm not saying it's cheap, but it's damn good beer and to me it's worth it to pick some up for the month that it's available.
