Default New cascade crop at 9.2% AA??

Hey guys, so I just bought a pound of cascade hops as the new crop was released. The person tells me they are 9.2% AA(came in food-saver bag) and I just want to double check to see if anyone else has gotten the same thing. This just seems unreasonably high for cascade to me and I want to properly account for them in beer smith. Any insight would be appreciated.

I'll bet growers are trying to get as many alphas out of their hops as long as they can maintain the character of the hop- almost every hop I bought this year has been higher %AA than last year.

Got 2012 Cascade from Puterbaugh (Hops Direct) at 7.4% this year and 2012 Centennial at 8.7% (HopUnion).
