Picking up Left Field Laser Show canned Jan 23 was a no-brainer.
Yeah, I still grabbed a few bottles of the Ruination. The best before is February 20, so I'll be drinking them before then. Haven't cracked a bottle yet, but willing to bet that it's better than any other WC DIPA available in this market.
I thought the Ruination was still drinking great.
Laser Show cans on the other hand... picked up a couple and thought they were both shit. Total disappointment and Left Field sent out some shit beer. I thought it may have been an old can or something that they just wanted to get rid of so sent them to the stores, but nope, early Jan.
Zero haze and a glass full of sediment with both cans. Patooey. Seems I've been getting let down by a a few of the old stalwarts lately. Thank goodness for Bellwoods. I've can't think of every being frustrated with their quality control, because it's done right.
