Its not rare. It was readily available for 2 weeks to order and most popular rare beers are unavailable days after their release from the distributor. Hunterdon was actually trying its hardest to push it out. Its definetly not on par with just say, stone enjoy by, dogfish 120, KBS, bourbon county, and game of thrones.
Yeah I've had a similar experience. Originally I was only able to buy two bottles and had to ask someone to get it out of the stock room for me, but lately the same store has had four packs on shelves. Maybe more of it got shipped out here this year or something, or maybe demand has been diluted with many other great beers coming out every year now.
It could be very good Idk I've never had it. But double ipas come off tasting too syrupy and heavy. I like sessions and american pale ales that taste more grassy, light and refreshing.
