    Its not like its a rare beer with limited distribution and its been out for a couple of months now, so you've had plenty of chance to buy it previously as well. Should be easy enough for you to find somewhere else.

    I don't believe in beer karma - its a product like any other. You get what you get and you don't get upset - that's what I tell my 4 year old that doesn't get everything she wants anyway.

    In that case I wish I got some. Problem was I have too much beer at home, and I left the store with more beer than I could carry :slight_frown:

    When did this hit last year? I remember getting my first six right after the first of the year.

    It's popped up in other markets already, including as far east as NC.

    I remember the very first batch we got was bottled 12/17/12. I think it showed up the first week of January.

    Bought two six packs at Redstone Liquors last night. They still had a few cases on the floor but not sure what, if any, they may have had in the back. Two six-pack limit through COB yesterday so wonder if it goes quick today.

    Had a Limbo with dinner, went to Redstone after that, then had to let them get cold. Couple hours later, cracked a Sucks, and it was pretty awesome. My three favorite DIPAs are Heady, Pliny and 2XSunshine. Sucks didn't change that -- but it came damn close. Sucks is certainly in my top five, and if I can stumble upon more of this beer anywhere, I'll be buying.

    Always enjoyed a Lagunitas IPA here or there, but "Sucks" brings things to a whole new level. Probably still have some at Redstone, but haven't seen it at Kappy's in Medford yet or anywhere in Boston city limits.

    Picked up a 6 pack last night @ Rapid in Stoneham, drinking one now. Tastes good as usual, but frankly I'd rather buy beer that will be consistently avail here...like Uinta Hop Notch, JA Hoponius, Founders All Day, SN Torpedo, Ithaca Flower Power & other good IPAs I can get that r fresh.

    out of the ones you mentioned, how close would are they to sucks?

    Craft said they don't have Sucks yet. I wonder who distributes to Redstone.

    And on a subject of available IPAs. Blue Hills just released their Quarter Mile 2xIPA in cans - 6x12oz. I think it's a pretty good choice for a $9-10 six-pack of IPA.

    It isn't even close sucks is far better then any of those beers. 2 weeks is standard for beer to ship from wc to east so you won't find those other beers much fresher. Sucks last considerably long too compared to flower power. And your argument boils down to you saying you don't want to try a seasonal beer? Well this one is going to be year round eventually so I'd consider tossing it in the rotation.

    Sucks all the way can't wait to get some soon.

    $10.99per. Tastes even better than I remember, but these are most likely the freshest I have had

    One of my local shops - Berman's in Lexington told me last night that they will not be getting any Sucks. I wonder if there is a different distributor for the north side of Boston for Lagunitas and only they are getting it?

    I'm not sure who distributes there. L. Knife maybe? We have the same distributor as Berman's - Craft - and my rep told me "they don't have any yet" but didn't say it wasn't coming at all. But that was about a week ago, maybe something has changed since then. I'll check.

    Strange...I've been to Marty’s, Gordon’s, and CBC all in Newton, Martignetti’s in Brighton, and Whole Foods in Dedham… No Sucks at any of those places.

    on a related note, I asked about Dirtwolf, they got 5 cases midweek and it was sold out same day

    Is this going to all of a sudden be hard to find? Maybe I'll just have to try and get a keg of it...
