Bought my first case of flying dog raging bitch sat. Had one sunday and thought it was ok. Bottle claimed it was 60 ibu, but tasted far more bitter than home brews i made that were higher. Is it a case of just using more hops at the end for flavor and aroma, or something else.
Ps i got the case for 33 bucks, is that the going rate?

I believe it runs 12.99 a six at my local TWM. 33 bucks a case sounds like you got a great deal. I have had this beer a few times and enjoyed it. Most of their beers are pretty solid that I've had so far.

You're closer to the brewery, though.

$16 is at around 24-25% margin for us as well--all of the other FD brews run around $9-$12.

I thought they got it wrong, it wasn't labeled and they gave it to me for the price of the other flying dog they had out.

$9 a six pack. It's made half an hour from where I live.

Your IBU calculations will always be off, and whichever yeast strain they use (feels similar to 550) is kind of bitter, so it cuts in with the hops for an extra bite.

I think I paid $35 in PA as well. For that much ABV, it's a good deal.
