Give it a 5 on apperance for having the balls to put it in a can. Anyway I had it and had to have another cause I couldn’t believe it, a good beer in a can...ok enough about the can. Very hoppy aroma with a nice mouthfeel, very upfront hop flavor which I like. Good finish and easier to throw away and not have to worry about breaking. OK, the beer was good

Wow. About as hoppy as a beer ever should be. Lots of hop bitters (caused by the isomerization of alpha acids in the hops), with plenty of hop flavor and aroma. Distinct hoppiness (as advertised), nice not so pale amber color, and pours with a huge but not particularly dense white head that lasts a damn long time for a carbonated beer. Cascades are obvious, the rest of the hops are difficult to discern until you read the commercial description. Sierra Nevada: watch out. There’s a new American Pale Ale in town, and it’s not taking any crap.

Great great great beer. Strong in your face hop flavor that is still tame enough to allow you to enjoy the taste and not just flinch. Not very malty and relaxed but definately present after taste. And I don’t care what anybody says, I like cans better than bottles. They are lighter, more durable, easier to carry, and protect the hops from sunlight better than glass.

12 oz can. Pretty solid little APA. Nice amber color with a small head that faded rather quickly. The aroma is mainly hops, with the taste being of mostly hops but a little bit of a solid malt background. This was much better than I expected when I first saw the can.
(the 6.5% abv was stronger than I thought it would be)

Thanks to FlacoAlto for this beer.
Poured an effervescent amber with a semi-frothy white head. Clean citrusy and piney hop aroma. Taste is piney hops, a hint of butterscotch and a smidgen of toffee. Clean and crisp APA; delicious.

Got to sample at a wine tasting. Interesting. Well done in a can ... who woulda thunk it! ;-) Hoppy & aromatic nose, yellow amber to slight orange color, okay head esp. for a can, good enough mouthfeel, med. malt tastes & crisp finish. Good job.

Leafy, resinous hops gleefully bounce off the caramel malt trampoline. Oranges splatter all around, this is as jovial as it gets.
Marvelous C-hops are balanced out by the suave caramel sweetness. A full mouthfeel presents the bountiful flavors, and a dry, resinous bitterness finishes the job. A superbly-brewed quaffer every way you look at it.
A proud and efficient employee.

Like everyone says, beer in a can, get out of here. But I am staying right here with this one. Not a huge fan of hops, but this beer is changing my perception. Great with Cajun food by the way!
