Silver tallboy can. Very cloudy, apricot bronze. Lots of malt, caramel and fruit in the aroma. Very drinkable, and not all that hop-assertive. Mouthy, with a long jammy aftertaste. Every now and again there was the resinous pine note, but this brew is more about malt. Thanks to PorterPounder - split one with him over at his place.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy bronze and light copper coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a nice, thick, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, peaches, light hops, grapefruit, pine and a bit of toffee. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hoppy notes up front with a thick body and a great balance of malt. Aftertaste shows some good hop characteristics with pleasant assertive alcohol and floral notes and a bit of a kick of pine and grapefruit with plentiful sugars. Overall,a very nice APA with the depth and body of a much higher abv beer than this one - great all the way around, especially from a can. I sampled this 16ounce pint sized can purchased earlier today from Merchant;s in Dearborn, Michigan for US$2.69 sampled today, 02-August-2013 in Grosse Ile, Michigan.

Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pak: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Light malt backbone. Not really all that bitter or hoppy in the taste. Not a remarkable example of the style, but drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy dark orange with a small off white head. The nose has bright notes of citrus and pineapple, brown sugar, and brown bread. The flavor has even balance between the malt and hops. The hops are much more subdued on the tongue than in the nose. There is some earthy bitterness with a touch of citrus. More nuttiness and almost chocolate notes peek through. Light to medium body with a medium finish. Solid flagship brew.
