I saw it on the shelf Tuesday here in Michigan, so it has presumably shipped already. Maybe some stores are better than others at waiting to put it out?

Probably so, official word from Bells is that 14th is the release day but obviously stores have it onhand waiting for that day.

Had one last night for the first time in a couple of years. Great, danky aroma, but I would bet dollars to donuts that there's Summit hops in there somewheres. I get a distinct garlic-powder flavor that I just can't abide. I may be more sensitive to that than others, but I honestly couldn't have more than a few sips. And I was so excited for it!
