It's a part of every pale beer made with hops and packaged in green or clear bottles and then exposed to sunlight.
If you bought one in a brown bottle, on draught or out of the case, it's not skunked. I think if it was intentional, they would skunk it at the brewery.
In Farmhouse Ales Markowski notes that in the package in the US it will probably be lightstruck and says he thinks it adds complexity. I disagree, as does the bumper of this thread, so it is nice that we have the option to purchase it in other formats than the green bottle.
