That was my guess. The 1318 is always out when I am at the LHBS. Maybe just more production of that one?
Maybe it's more of an ordering problem than a production problem.
Or that everyone is brewing NEIPAs, as it is the new beer of the moment?
Had a couple of samples when I was out West recently. Maybe they are poor knockoffs. The aroma was big, the flavor was muddled, the mouthfeel was odd, the finish was, well not much of a finish. One was astringent. We will swing out East again sometime to see some friends. Time in VT shall be on the schedule.
