    “…. past four years, Amalgamator…best IPA money can buy. ”
    I totally agree.

    Beachwood has recently partnered with Stone Distrinution, so will quickly become more readily availble for many as of September 2018.

    I also appreciate the easy to read canned on date.

    I appreciate your articles but swamis and amalgamator aren’t even close. Amalgamator is much hoppier in taste and higher abv.

      6.8% vs. 7.1%? That’s essentially the same especially for craft beers, which vary batch to batch and are not lab tested for ABV. And as far as hoppier (I’m assuming you mean more bitter?), they both have an equal blend of aromatic hops and high alpha acid bittering hops (Chinook, CTZ, Cascade, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe) vs. Amalgamator (Mosaic, Warrior, Columbus, Amarillo). I’m sticking to my opinion that they are extremely similar and compete directly with each other in the marketplace.
