But where do the other options stand in terms of hop freshness?

A date stamp on the bottom of an airtight, light-free container is worth a few extra cents, for me.

ABV doesn't matter as much as quality:
Metalman PA is a better beer than all except 2 or 3 of the names in that list.

I'll also pay it for peace of mind - hoppy ales in bottles are just easier to mistreat and ruin.

But to each his own.


And to answer a previous question, it's an expiry date.
For the likes of us, though, it'd be easy enough to find out Metalman's policy and work backwards.

Precisely. So with a 22.Jul.15 BBD, that sounds like 6 month dating - short, I'm glad to see.
