    The only benefit is shipping it, since shipping 1 bomber is probably lighter than 2-12oz. Then again, I'd prefer 16oz cans to anything else. One can only dream of 16oz cans of NN.

    I was underwhelmed with this years version. Did they change the formula? Less malty backbone and they took off the 93 IBU's on the label. Still a great ipa but not like last years. I do understand that it is a agricultural product and there are to be some variables. Anyone else?

    what are folks seeing for bottle dates? Sixer in the fridge picked up on Saturday was bottled 2/3/14. Curious what other folks might have, if there is any difference

    DeBuca's in Raynham, MA supposedly got it in over the weekend. I did not personally verify this as a fact, but they put it on FaceBook so it must be true :astonished:

    Well done. Only grabbed a 6 pack on Friday as part of a larger beer haul. Thought to myself after I had finished it that it was one of the easiest, tastiest, and fastest 6 packs I'd consumed in recent memory. My next thought was that I needed to get more the next time I am out and about.

    After stumbling upon a huge whiskey tasting I had no clue about, grabbed a case at Julio' s yesterday for $45.99 (sixers were $11.99).

    I couldn't agree more. Tastes totally different, not in a good way.

    I'm loving it this year. Better than the two previous years imo & closest to the original beer I remember. :slight_smile:

    Am I the only one that loses their shit when someone calls NN an IPA? I'm a little high strung lately.

    Picked up a 6 pack at Blanchard's in West Roxbury. They didn't have much, maybe 6 cases or so (visible anyways). $12.99. I tried the first two with a friend and thought it was really tasty. I'm not sure if I would rank it quite as highly as the cumulative average of this site, but I can see how it could get there.

    Troegs is canning now. I just imagine that Nugget Nectar in a can would be tremendous.

    2/3/14 bottles were sublime
    2/14/14 bottles just did not taste the same...maybe because the cases were warm? Hard to believe but the fresher bottles tasted worse...

    We have a good amount at The Vin Bin in Hopkinton if you are out and about and need some.

    Don't know which bottling date I got but I thought it taasted like they used stale hops. Dirt, lemon tea, and a little bit of cheese. Anyone is welcome to the 5 pack I wont drink.

    Bought some yesterday but couldnt find a date on the bottle. On tap it was amazing, not as good in the bottle I had last night
