    I received several of those bottles from CA and noticed both bottles have different caps, anyone know why?

    Yes, the brewery recently(March 1st) switched from the black crown to using their own personalized crowns. Also, I'd be willing to bet that if you looked on the label you would see a "date code" on the black crown and a "bottled on date" on the Knee Deep Crown. If you need some fresh stuff let me know I'm headed up to the Sacramento area later today and could probably get you fresh ones of this, Simtra, Batch 138, 3X IPA or Belgo-Hoptologist. Cheers!

    It's the Hop Shortage but they are releasing another 3x IPA soon. Not sure which one it's going to be.*

    *it will be one that focuses on Amarillo hops http://kneedeepbrewing.com/meps-2013/
