3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured clear and golden with a thin white head. Spicy hops up front and on the back end. Not much balance in my opinion. Moreso resembles an IPA. Palate left my mouth bone dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured with a good bit of foam, rising up like bread dough. Color was clear golden. The aroma is heavy on floral hops with a bit of sweetness. Up front the taste has a fair bit of floral and aromatic hops, though the sweet malts balance it out quite well. The mouthfeel is quite nice as well, as the carbonation is very soft.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Tasty crack cans." There’s a lot I like about this beer, but I felt a little let down in the taste department.
I love the concept - a hop forward session beer in a can. In fact, I made an IPA which accidentally turned out very low gravity but had plenty of hop wallop. And that experience led me to be a touch disappointed with this beer. It is quality, looking good and tasting good, and it achieves its mission of a tasty, sessionable beer. However, I would’ve liked a little more flavor and specifically a little more bitterness and hop character. It’s there, but sort of indistinct bitterness...would love a beer like this with more late addition to hops to bring out pine/citrus/etc.
I liked this beer, and would buy it again, but more than anything it has fired up my homebrewing imagination.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
THIS BEER POURS A SLIGHTLY DARK GOLDEN COLOR BUT IS MEANT TO BE DRANK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE CAN. 21ST AMENDMENT IN MY OPINION IS ONE OF THE TOP THREE CANNED BREWERS IN THE WORLD, THIS ONE DOES NOTHING BUT HELPS THEIR CAUSE.PERSONALLY I TEND TO LEAN TOWARDS BREWS WITH HIGH ALCOHOL CONTENT, BUT I DRINK BEER BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO NO BEER IS SAFE AROUND ME. THIS ONE IS VERY LOW IN ALC. BUT I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE NEVER TASTED A BREW WITH SUCH LOW ALC. % YET SO MUCH FLAVOR, GRANTED THIS ISNT AN IMPERIAL IPA OR A BARLEY ALE, BUT THE AMOUNT OF QUALITY FLAVOR IS STILL VERY IMPRESSIVE. IT TASTES OF NUTTY HOPS WITH A FRUITY SLIGHTLY CHERRY HINT THAT LACES THE TONGUE VERY WELL. TO ME THIS IS THE EPITOME OF A SESSION BEER. NOT TO MENTION SOME OF THE MOST CLEVER ART WORK EVER PUT ON A BREW.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of citrus hops and not much else which is fine with me, maybe a little bit of biscuit in there. Taste is much the same as the aroma, very light and fruity citrusy hops with a lgiht malt backbone to balance it out. An excellent hoppy session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 4/8/2011. The American Pale Ale/Bitter pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz can. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is citrusy and floral with a touch of bread and malt. A medium bodied ale. The malts are fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are citrusy and perhaps a touch piney. Nice carbonation. Good balance. There are a lot of hops in this beer, from the first hint in the aroma when you open the can to a nice clean bitter aftertaste. The hops let you know they are there, but never really overwhelm you at any point. I gotta say this is a great session bitter. Lots of flavor with not all that much alcohol. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Brown amber color. Smells of pine, lemon and cake. Taste is hoppy but very crisp. Consistency of a hybrid pilsner, ipa. Very easy drinking and really good. One of my top session beers probably
