And I know exactly what citra smells like, and Im thinking you dont. I dont get the cat urine that some get from it, thats just weird (Im highly allergic to all thinks cat, I have a high sensitivity to it, when I was house searching, I walked out of a number of houses after 2 seconds due to the odor of cat urine. If citra smelled like that, I wouldnt drink it).

And over an inch of that is jutting proudly well above the rim, thick, luxurious, meringue-like, gravity defying.... like the breasts of a vestal virgin.... verily..... able to ride the very wings of angels as it effortlessly flouts the earthly laws of physics. Expressing its sovereignty above......
Oh,, sorry.. Got carried away for a second there.

I've had a few beers that were single hopped with Simcoe and it was one of the worst beer experiences I've ever had.

Busy running around doing 10 different things, they don't mean to rip you off. I know AtG is different being a brewery but just stating in general I'm sure they would top off if you politely requested.
The beer scene is full of great people around here, I bought a bottle of 2009 Avery Czar at Liquor Barn Springhurst, and was disappointed to find it was infected/oxidized when I opened it. I recapped the bottle and contacted Todd Pharris, their head beer guy. He allowed me to return the bottle and pick something else, saying that they stand next to any product they sell. For being such a huge company/store it was nice to get a personal touch. Of course I'm a regular shopper at The Keg as well, but it is a much further drive for me.

Did they check inventory in other stores for you? I have a friend who works for SWS, maybe she can help you locate some.
