    Let's not jump the gun yet guy's. Label approval doesn't mean we are getting it. Yeah, I know. I'm a kill joy. I'll believe it when it hits the shelves. Thats in regards to all BCBS's.

    I enjoyed the BA Wake Up Dead, but didn't taste too much of the barrel, just a slight edge that came out more as it warmed up. Still, a very quality beer and the average score on here seemed way too low to me. I give it a 3.75-4.0.

    Also... wtf is with the Heavy Machinery IPA approval? It's approved for 16oz "kegs" and doesn't look like any can or bottle design I've ever seen. You can make out '1 Pint' on their scan of it though.

    I'm guessing a can label ala Southern Star seasonals. It's weird though. I'd copy it here but I'm away from my desk.

    It also says "Exclusively Sold in Austin". Perhaps a local can or bottle series?

    I'm pretty sure it's 16 oz cans and they'll be using stickers like Southern Star. I believe this is what I was told last time I was at ABW. I think they're aiming for 6 different IPA seasonals this year.
