Don’t buy IPAs on eBay. Don’t buy beer on eBay. If you must buy beer on eBay and that beer must be an IPA, ask the seller what the bottled on date is. This guy, on March 20th, 2012 says that Pliny the Elder bottled on November 13th, 2011 is “fresh”. He might as well have not written the date at all! Why even say it’s fresh when it’s 5 months old. Under 4-weeks from bottling. That’s when you should buy things like this and my vote is not to buy it at all because $86 for 10 bottles of Pliny is hard and that’s the starting bid.
