Does anyone have any word of the Fullers Vintage 2008? I know it is early for this release, but the Vintage always seems to hit around this time of year. I am anxious to stockpile - and I am looking forward to a nice 5 year vertical 2004-2008. they have 13 of them in Lindsay as of this morning :-?

I think St. Pete IPA tastes alright, the 'medicinal' sharp hops were not an issue for me & I could have enjoyed another. i agree with belgian, ive had much worse american and english style IPA then the St Peter's. i will say that the IPA doesnt hold a candle to the Ruby Red but its still an enj...
