I saw them packaging it at the brewery about 4 weeks ago, so it should be starting to filter out from the distributors about now.

BTW, the new SN tour is DA BOMBZ, especially with the tasting room at the end! 10 beers, including a couple of Beer Camp brews, in the tasting room at the end of the tour. (Sorry for the OT)

Enjoy!

This years batch is NOT as good as last years, IMO. It has a greasy/oily hop quality in it that I strongly dislike. It is a near perfect clone of a Squatters IPA. I am actually disappointed...YMMV

EDIT: Mine was on tap not bottled but I know that the lines are clean.

I COMPLETELY agree, this years batch is a dissapointment. It almost has a skunky flavor and the hop characteristics are very poor. Typically one of my favorite beers of the season, quite a let down. I brewed a clone and was anxious to compare.

On the other hand, this years Jubelale is spectacular.
