12oz CAN wow what a can of beer. This is the best can I have had. I know I said this with old chub once before. Pours out a cloudy amber topped with a cream off white head. A great hop aroma along with tast. A nice bitter and sweet mix. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can from John’s Marketplace, Portland, OR. Beautiful sparkling clear amber color with a large and foamy off-white head that lingers well and leaves nice lacing. Bright citrus hoppiness, grapefruit and tangy summer fruits dominate, with a little earthiness and dust. Flavor is also dominated by the citrus and floral hops, pine notes and grapefruit, with hints of caramel and ripe summer fruits, lots of citrus rind bitterness and astringency in the finish, toasty malts hang in the background, but provide a supportive backbone nonetheless. Medium body and gently tingly carbonation. This is a fine west coast IPA, brisk, brash, refreshing and packed with hop flavor. A great beer in a can!

bought this out of novelty, floral cascade nose, sweet smooth hop flavor, floral and citrus, delicious, best thing that comes out of a can, that is unless you’ve bought a can of beans that grants wishes and grows pot, i haven’t but i’ll bet that would be cooler

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 12oz can from SamuraiArtist - thanks, Ezra! Nice lookin’ copper brew with a pretty decent head. I continue to be surprised at finding such robust and interesting beers packed in aluminum. This is a nice, crisp, intensely bitter West Coast IPA - very lemony and sticky. I’d drink this all the time if I could. Fine stuff.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can bought at the brewery. Clear, burnt orange with lasting head retention. Citrus, candy aroma. Reserved bitterness. Color leads me to think there should be more malt then there is. Well attenuated. Mouthfeel was sticky from the hop oil (dry hopping). More like a 1995 IPA. Now (2008) considered a Strong Pale Ale at 6.1% ABV. Great town, great brewery and a great beer. Chinese spicy honey chicken would be the pair.

Thanks to hopdog for this...
Appears a hazy, light orange with a small white head that fades into a mild collar and film. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is nice of citrusy hops, along with some notes of pine sap and herbs.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with caramel and citrus notes battling it out with a mild spiciness going on in the flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, yeasty, sweet up front, and bitter on the end.
