    Has anyone bought one yet?? They just came out like 2 weeks ago here and not proud to say I am on my fourth! lol and all four I have bought have tasted not right at all!!! Its like a stale mess off bad beer! I mean after 2 or 3 anything is drinkable! you know when you are on your 3rd and you want to get rid of those beers you dont quite like in the fridge! thats how every one of these have been! I even bought them from 3 different places to see! now is it the distributor in MA?? please tell me someone else has bought one and its fine and Lagunitas didnt change the recipe or start using sub par hops!! This is my fourth twelve pack and I am starting to get worried! I know its not me cuz I have some sixes left from the summer and they still taste wonderful with a date 50 days less then these!!!

    I think he actually drank more then that because he had left over 6 packs that he has used as a comparison that were older then the 12ers... lol

    i am not entirely sure what the OP even means.

    each 12 pack has been stale? or a few beers out of it has been "bad"? if they've all been bad then why did you buy 4 different 12 packs?

    if one 12 pack was bad then maybe it's a mistake on their part. if you buy a 12 pack from another store and it's still off then call it a day! don't buy two more 12 packs hoping it's gonna be good. get something else!!!

    if fresh beer tastes like piss I know what I won't be getting next time! all i know is my case of GLBC Oktoberfest has been fantastic

    Correct me if I am wrong, but this should be the same beer that is in 6 packs, just a different format. Regardless of when you bought them, have you checked the date, if so how old is it. I had pretty much given up on Lagunitas products in Houston until I found them at a local HEB and they were only 1 month old vs 6 everywhere else

    Yeah I should have put that in the top...they all have super fresh dates... 215 I think.

    I never only have a 12 pack at a time in my fridge! Its usually loaded with like 8 different 6 packs....and 2 of the six packs usually have multiple different beers in them.....but like I said been on a budget lately.....and on a budget I usually get IPA or the stoney brook 12 packs. The IPA tastes better then the sumpin!

    And of course I am going to keep trying different places....love sumpin! and if they taste stale with a 215 date and its all I have on a budget what am I going to throw them out???

    We've been lucky enough to have them in Illinois for a few months. Fantastic. Now if I can get my hands on some Doppel Sticky Lagunitas.

    48 beers.....That's nothing. Ozzy Osbourn could down a case every night at one point. So you are looking at two days worth of beers here at the most. OP is taking things easy!

    avg 6 beers a night.....twelves go away quick!!!!

    I just got a twelve of stoney brook to mix things up!! and a twelve of lagunitas IPA....the IPA is way better then the sumpins!!! so upset I love sumpins too!

    I know it's a beer forum and all but come on..it's a forum to discuss great beer. Not talk like a drunk idiot about downing 12 packs of beer you thought were bad anyways.

    Anyway Sumpin usually is very well balanced between fruity and bouquet with a slight hop bitterness. The twelve packs I have bought all taste like a over bitter jumbled mess.....like you bought a six pack off the shelves that you forgot to check the date and has been sitting there for 2 years! The first couple six packs of sucks that came out this summer were kinda like that too. I bought a six pack from like 5 places and they were all not the sucks I was used to drinking! Those were from the cali brewery.....the next batch that came our way was from Chicago and tasted much much better!
    Maybe they were trying to make too much and didnt have the recipe right?
    Anyway if anyway has bought a sumpin twelve pack and noticed the difference please chime in. If you really need to be a troll and have to comment on me drinking them anyway cuz thats all I have then go troll another thread.

    If you're on a budget why are you drinking like 7 beers a night? To forget the fact that you're on a budget?

    I had the same experience with Sucks as well. They came in on a new shipment, no date of course to be found (despite what so many describe as faint, but there....and BELIEVE me I checked) and it was an overtly malty IPA devoid of EVERYTHING that made that beer what is is. Since then I've been hesitant to buy more.

    I would weigh 500 pounds I expect, at six beers a night. Haven't bought the 12s yet, but Sumpin Sumpin is my wife's favorite beer, so it is nearly always in the fridge. She hasn't complained about any differences.
