    If it really is Pro-Am '12 rebranded, then it's better than Pliny.

    With Valkyrie and Endeavour... Houston is sitting just fine in the dIPA department.

    According to FB, Valkyrie = Pro-Am '12. This makes me very happy.

    Why aren't they canning this? By bottling this I can't take it out to the beach or to the pool. I don't know if its just me, but I enjoy a cold ipa/iipa by the pool on a hot summer day.

    While I am very happy to see Pro AM '12 become a everyday seller from southern star, I'm gonna be kinda pissed if they only sell it in 500ml over priced bottles. Bring on the 4 packs of Valkyrie!

    They had it on tap at The Den on UH campus of all places. LOL. Had it on draft.

    ProAM>Endeavour most definitely.

    The den really stepped it up the past 2yrs. The last time I was there(last fall) I want to say the owner stopped selling endeavor cause amatuers were getting shit tanked, cause they didn't know what they were drinking.

    Agreed with the ProAm12 vs Endeavour statement listed above. While I do enjoy some fresh endeavour, the ProAM had a fantastic piney smell! It was also damn good and everything I look for in a DIIPA

    I concur, also, was reorganizing my beer fridge, and I still have 10 ProAMs left. I have been steadily drinking them, and they are still very enjoyable.

    I agree with this statement. I think it has to do with it being canned. Iv had old Endeavour that turned south quick. Pro AM is holding strong. I actually just completed a trade where I sent Endeavour, Rodeo Clown, Hopadillo, Elissa, and Pro Am and he just got back with me that he enjoyed the Pro AM the best. And the Endeavour I sent him was bottled about a week before I mailed it off, 1/11/13 is the freshest i believe.

    Damn, I must have completely overlooked ProAm. There are some pretty bold remarks about over these last few pages.

    ProAm was the shiznit for double IPA at freaking 7 bucks and some change for a 4-Pack! I doubt it will be anywhere near that cheap now it's re-branded and in fancy pants bottles but still, a near world class, if not flat out world class DIPA.

    Gimmie.

    Yes, it's technically a SS beer. SS made the actual blonde Bière de Garde for it.

    I agree with everybody else also. PA2012 blows Endeavor out of the water IMO. I am stoked about the Valkerie news.

    The ProAm 2012 was the serious, world-class shiznit. Thrilled to hear of this Valkyrie development.

    So can any ProAM 2012 still be found? I looked around this weekend for it and the only seasons I could find were Old Potentate and Le Mort Vivant.

    I did the same, and I found the same. Even the smaller stores had the same seasonals. I think you may just have to wait till they rerelease it
