Oh serious? I have to try this to see how bad it's gotten, used to be an incredible IPA. NB Headstock is hit-or-miss, and Neighbor is one of the GLB's I don't mind. So frustrating liking IPA's here, is someone now going to tell me Mad Tom has gone away from its amazingness?
Funny as I wrote that, I was thinking Church Key-brewed Scotch Irish Sgt Majors IPA was really freaking consistent, and it had the nicest Chinook hop signature that was so pure sappy and funky. Maybe my rose-colored glasses are on but I think it was truly great before Heritage got their infamous mitts on it.

But they won't because it's all selling so well & they have great optics that somehow disguise the fact their beers cost about $28 dollars a liter. That's half a tank of gas... but great bottle labels and nice bunch of guys/gals.
