12 oz can courtesy the Belgianbeergal. Pours a slightly dark gold with a thin white head. Nice big grapefruit, floral and pine aroma that fills the room. Nice malt body with grapefruit pine bitterness in the taste. Chewy body, lots of hops. Finishes bitter and hoppy, good ipa.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus piney aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with moderate bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This solid beer did meet my expectations.

Great gimmick (being in a can), great style to put in a can, nowhere near an American IPA. Very buttery and malty. I am quite puzzled at the high ratings. Also note that while the brewery is located in San Francisco, this can was made in Cold Springs, MN.

bottle; poured a clear gold, large white head with some lacing. Aroma of yeast, citrus, grapefruit and caramel; blended together pretty well. Hops were pretty mellow in the flavor; slightly sweet. Good caramel flavor; citrus and a bit of grapefruit. Very sessionable.

From a 12 oz. can purchased locally. Aroma is full of hops, orange, pine, a liittle woody. Golden amber with a small off white head. Flavor is dominated with hop flavor full of pine and citrus followed by toasty malt and a hint of sweetness and a strong hop bitterness that persists through the finish. Full bodied, and full of flavor. One of the best beers available in a can.

Canned pour into a frozen pint mug. Pour a nice cantalope like color, maybe more amber than that. Nice citrus aroma. Some good canned beers out lately and this is one of them. Great floral and citrus flavor. I’m very impressed.

RBSG 2008. Pretty nice IPA, lots of citrus hops, good balance to it all. Pretty solid this stuff comes in a can. Pours amber with a small white head. Enjoyable IPA, not over the top, but a good crisp floral personality.

Pours a dark amber in color. A very nice four inch of head forms on the pour. Took a couple seconds to make room in the glass to finish the pour. Smell is floral hops. Taste is creamy, well balanced hops. Not very assertive, over the top hops, but well put together. This is a very malty IPA. I’ve had several canned beers and this is the first one where I swear I get a metallic hint in the beer. Very good nonetheless.
