3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 FBG07. Delicious hop nose, very heavy on the grapefruit notes. Amber with a thin white head. Hoppy deliciousness, well-balanced citrus. Palate is clean and not too dry for the style. Hell of a session ale.

Can be in a can be good? Yes, and this proves it. Big hops, big flavor. Very impressed.

From the can. Nice solid pale ale. Good hop bite to it. Good floral aroma to it.

Beautiful head for a pale ale. Citrusy hops that do not overpower--they blend nicely with malt, but definitely set the pace for this beer. Nice, snappy finish with no disagreeable aftertaste. Hmmmm... perhaps my favorite pale ale to date.

Can I picked up at Whole Foods: You can smell the hops on this, pours a darkish amber with a white head, the taste is not as hoppy as the aroma had me expecting, very nice for a canned beer.

Can from Broudy’s Liquor. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Standout drinkable brew in a can.

Wow...amazing to drink a beer out of can and have it be good. I have no idea about the color cuz I drank it right out of the can. The taste was the great malt and hops with a nice light hops background. Glad I brought it back with me from Rhode Island.

Oskar is really impressing me with this whole good beer in a can idea. Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head that quickly disappeared into nothing but a memory. Tons of hops in the aroma with a hint of malts as well. Flavor is fantastic but I agree with Yankovitch333 that it seems almost like an IPA rather than an APA. My only problem now is when going for a beer in a can do I grab this or an Old Chub, decisions decisions.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 New: Not much to add to below except that I keep buying this stuff. It’s really wonderful. Old: (3/11/07) This is a very likeable beer. It has a nice amount of fruity malt and a definite hop presence. There’s no one thing that I would particularly remark upon, but there is this undeniable, overall sense of quality that you experience while drinking it.

Looking forward to trying this one. I always passed getting this beer, the can always put me off. I decided to check the ratings and see how horrible it was, I then find out that it is a really decently rated beer. Pours an amber color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is full of hops with grapefruit and citrus taking dominance. Sweet malts come in the aroma too with caramel and vanilla. Flavor is grapefuit and citrus with caramel malts coming in. Finishes with a nice hoppy bitterness. A very refreshing beer. A "to go to" beer.
