    Thankfully Sucks is available in CT package stores as of today. I'm about to crack my first one. What was your first one this year like? As good as last year? Cheers!

    Honestly, I've never had it before and was looking forward to it after all the hype I've read here, and I'm all Peggy Lee on it. (ie "Is that all there is?") It's a good, clean tasting IPA without much to make it stand out from the crowd, to me. A local MA startup brewery (Westfield River) makes a strikingly similar product in their 413 IPA, readily available in low priced bombers, so if Sucks runs out I won't feel too deprived.
