Canned beer can get no better! Pours a nice copper color. A nice head dissipates to fine lace around the top of the beer. The hoppy taste is just right! A good session beer!

Pours a reddish orange color with a medium sized off white head. Nose is fruity, toasted malt, and floral hops. Taste is mild and of biscuits with a very bitter finish. Pretty good APA remindes me of Alpha Kappa. HOwever the nose and taste seems to fade as it is exposed to air which is odd.

Can picked up at Woodman’s in Madison. Pours a honey golden with a big foamy off-white head that sticks around. Nice lacing. Sweet, potent hops aroma with floral hints. Flavor is grassy, floral and pleasantly sweet that becomes strongly bitter and finishes dry. Full bodied, creamy with a nice lingering bitterness. Excellent!

Pretty good, best beer I have ever had out of a can. Nice balance of hops and some malt. Lingering bitter finish. Piney hop taste typical of APAs. Doesn’t really stand out though, and not the smoothest or most drinkable beer.

Can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium frothy off white head. The aroma is very hoppy and pine. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a also a strong hop and light malt finish. Just like the description big brew in a little can. A great American Pale Ale from Oskar Blues.

Absolutely a beautiful copper color. I wasn’t expecting this... I guess just cause it’s in a can I was expecting a watered down looking beer. Nice piney hops aroma. Flavor, as the aroma, is definitely intense at the beginning but really mellows as you drink it. It’s almost a roasty nutty bitterness. Simply awesome

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick off white head. Immediate caramel aroma fills the air after the can is cracked, some mild hops present as well. Flavor is bitter up front with a sweet caramel tasting middle and then finishing with a mild floral hop taste. Leaves a pleasant roasted aftertaste in my mouth. Pretty good overall.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 This is a damn good APA. Full of malty goodness. Full of hoppy goodness. What an APA should be. Very Midwestern in its worship of the malt. Very West Coast in its worship of the hop. Pours a slightly hazy copperish amber with very little head. This comes in a acan - I am amazed a good beer like this comes in a can. This is after a growler of Alpine Duet.
