Default Skunked Magic Hat

I picked up a mixed 6'er at the beer store Sat. night. All was going well until I opened up the Magic Hat #9. It was skunked past being drinkable. I noticed that their bottle was a bit lighter than most of the rest of the bottles that I have saved. The beer store was much too bright, but none of the other beers I picked up showed any sign of being skunked. Has anyone else had any trouble with other Magic Hat beers?

The ones I have tried in a bottle (only twice) were that bad too. However, I had it on draft for lunch today and it was much better. It was the beer of the month special but I didn't want to order one without a taste first. Much better than in a bottle. Still overrated, but I would get it again on special.

Hi,
Check the age on the bottle.
I've never had any Magic Hat that was stale, but then again, I live about 3 miles from the brewery.

I think it was dated for march 2009 or somewhere around there. It wasn't stale, it was skunked.
