12 ounce can sampled at a homebrew meeting. Very clear copper with a snowy white head. Very blunt citus aroma. Melon even. A bit of a grassy finish. Good bitterness.

Can courtesy of Naven. Popped the top and WOW!- this is one of the best hop aromas I have ever sniffed. Beautiful pour w/ great lacing. This beer tastes like a Dbl IPA but drinks like an IPA. Excellent, truly excellent. My new favorite IPA.

I have never had this beer that was in a can that I didnít open and then not pur intoi a glass nor my own mouth upon which time I wasnít surprised that it didnít taste so ... okay, all this negativity is even getting ME down - was good, and even if it shouldnít have been, surprisingly so. Nice and full and hoppy and making me wish like hell it was a tad cheaper and that I boughyt a case or three.

On tap @ 21st Amendment poured a clear light copper with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of orange and carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of orange, carmel and a hint of lemon with a dry bitter finish.

Thanks to the beerlist for this. Smells wonderful, full of floral hoppiness. Has a fairly dry hoppy bitter taste. A normal session IPA that you canít go wrong with.

12 oz. Can. Thanks to Alan (fly)for the beer. Pours slightly hazy light copper with an off white head with sticky lacing. Sweet malt with big pine/citrus notes in the nose. Sweet malt with a sharp grapefruit and pine bitterness for balance. Medium body with a great mouthfeel. Great beer.

12 oz. can. Thanks Fly & Swatter! Nice golden color, clear, medium head. Nice piney and citrus aroma. Wow, what a great beer from a can. Great balance of bitterness, hop flavor & hop aroma. Obviously the dry hopping was a key. Nice malt and hop balance as well. Best beer in a can that we know of. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a can (yes, a can): I have to admit, the initial "crack" of the can elicits not so fond memories of drinking Tecates until I had a raging headache, BUT, once this beer hits your tounge, you know everything is going to be alright. Yes, it tastes as good, if not better, than from a bottle, and yes, it tastes fresh. Super fresh. Real hoppy, nice nose which screams west coast -- and a lingering tartness which satisfies my craving for hops. A very good west coast IPA.

On cask. This beer was the regular 21 A IPA dry-hopped in the cask and served by gravity. The bartender did not know what hops where in the cask. Pours a murky, electric shade of copper with a dirty white head. HUGE hop aromas; mostly orange notes but also some grapefruit, flowers and maybe a little grass. Perfect balance of malt and tons of hops.
