They have a couple cans now that have been approved, that we haven’t yet seen in stores.  This one looks to be a nice lower abv IPA for all the fans of big, piney, American hops.  Coming in at 6.5% abv and 65IBUs, the can reads:

Camping in the woods on a dark night, unsure if you heard footsteps, an animal, or the wind.  Whispers of “What was that?” as the hair stands up on the back of your neck.  Peering out from the tent, a shadowy figure fades into the pines.  In remembrance of that epic encounter, you name the mysterious creature “Big Piney”.  Moerlein Big Piney IPA is brewed with a monstrous mix of Pacific Northwest hops that gives this creature a thick aroma of dank pine, inspiring a legend of it’s own.

I’m excited to get my hands on this, along with the T-Bird label that was spotted back in August.  It’s great seeing such good beers coming out of Moerlein in recent times!
