I just polished mine off tonight and thought they were all very good. Third voyage was a little tough, but still enjoyable. maybe you just got a bad batch?

Between work and a couple of weeks in the Bahamas my pipeline thinned out a bit this spring - I actually had one of my six faucets go dry for the first time in a year! Tragic! I've been nursing it back up to speed (got four 5g batches in various phases of percolation right now) and to stretch what's on hand I picked up a Hopology half-case.

I really enjoyed all six styles and think it was the best mixed box Sammy has sold in quite some time. Kinda wish I could lay my hands on another box but every packy near me is out.

No off flavors of any kind in any of the twelve bottles...

Cheers!

Must've got a bad box. The Belgian was very good but the tasmin red and Baltic IPA were way off!!

Those are the two I disliked the most as well.

I will never drink another Sam Adams product after I had latitude 48. It was absolutely disgusting.

I'm right there with ya. I definitely noticed somewhat of a metallic taste in the first few sips of most of them, especially third voyage. I didn't notice any fishy taste though. Overall, I was not impressed with this mix pack at all and wouldn't buy it again. I found the latitude, white water and belgian to be the better of the offerings but still disappointing. Tasmin and baltic were drinkable but not that great at all. Third voyage was absolutely painful with a VERY strong metallic taste that lingered for what seemed like days. I actually dumped the last half of that bottle and I NEVER dump beer. The second bottle is still in my fridge and will probably remain there until I can sucker someone into trying it.

I really wish they would just release Grumpy Monk on its own. That and White Water were the only ones in the box I liked.
