Agree totally. I can make 5.5gal of an amazing IIPA for the cost of a 12-pack. It is good, but not as good as it is hyped to be.

Hope to get some soon and I'll let you know. What did the 1/2 case set you back (if you don't mind my asking?)

It is a fitting picture--the taste of the beer brings me to a place that looks like this, and evokes the same emotions. Which I am drinking now.

Best thread ever, this.

$46.. Ridiculous. Like OClair said, you can brew 3-4 6 gallon batches for the price of a case.

Also, I may be able to get an extra six pack. I will know more this weekend PM me if you are interested because i am willing to part with it.

Enjoying one of Stauffbier's Dust Devil IIPAs. Damn fine beer, lots of nice hops flavor and aroma, good malt back, finish makes you want more. Really well done!

definite pine & citrus, but very balanced between the two. a real IPA/APA blend. and if it helps, this keg's almost gone. finally. a standard American Lager slapped with a small amount of IPA hops is good, just not great.
