I was debating if I wanted to drop that kind of coin on a sixer, but Shelton Bros has told western NC to go eff itself, so I can't buy it anyway.

I tried to start a thread on BA about how tacky the US labels are, but it disappeared!

I've dropped $50 on a 750ml before (it was a 6 year old bottle of Rodenbach). So I guess this is pretty comparable, and if you look at it ounce for once, actually a little cheaper. Wasn't sure if it was worth it then, not sure if this is worth it now. But it's pretty close. My rationalization to myself (and to my wife) was that it's cheaper than a plane ticket.

Good thing they are not in Texas because i shouldn't spend that much on a sixer+2 glasses though i probably will if i saw one.

I got one in my cellar and i'm not opening that one for a decade or so.

They weren't available in VA either. Fortunately, I live right on the DC/VA/MD border, and was able to go up to one of the places in MD that was selling it first thing in the AM. My other 5 bottles are getting stashed. I'll probably open one a year as a bday present to myself.

I told my beer store to get some of this, it came in today, prefect time to visit.

SN narwhal. Smells amazing, tastes amazing. A great 4-pack under ten bucks!

I'm going to start buying this more often. And to think I didn't like it the first time I had it. I guess my palate wasn't matured enough at that point.

What style? Aroma/ flavor? My store has this and kind of interested me, but never saw any reviews. Nor I never looked any up. They come in like a 4-pack box, right?

Its a DIPA in my opinion. Its nice and hoppy, nice bitterness and very good. I enjoyed it and have to get it again soon, Just drank the last one i had last night. Its worth picking up. I love the cans

One complaint about sixpoint are their packaging, it does not state what it is on there and you have to guess it.
