    Has anyone had the most current batch yet? Did this switch to once a year as opposed to twice (as evident by the label which just says 2013 release)?

    And for those who have been following this beer for a few years, how does this batch compare to the pinnacle batch 13 from March 2011?

    Good but hot right now. I'd hold it for a month.

    Good but fading fast. It's going to be well nigh undrinkable in a month.

    I plan on it, I was just trying to get a heads up so I could prepare myself for disappointment.
  6. Where's the fun in that?
    Just prepare to have beer.

    I was prepared to have my gob smacked off...and I'm still in a humulus lupulus induced coma. Same as it ever was - kudos to Avery.
  8. Yeah I'd say it's drinking great right now, get it while it's fresh!

    I've drank several already and it's great. I believe it's suppose to be released on a more frequent schedule.
