2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355 ml can, shared with my neighbour Kjetil. 1/3 of the can on table and floor before I reached the glass. Hazy amber color, off-white head. Aroma is ok hops. Flavor is hops and sweet malt, but most of all watery. Boring, a big disappointment. Must be something wrong with this can - maybe I will re-rate it one day.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy brown with a nice thick head. hops on the nose along with citrus. Smooth hops oon the palate with just a touch of too much bitterness for my liking. Overall a good beer for the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours a deep coppery brown with good sized white head. Aroma is big time floral hops. Taste is smooth and bitter with long flavorful hop finish. I think the ratings here (including mine) are influenced by the novelty of having a good beer in a can.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Copper color with thick foamy head, lacing, and lots of bubbles. Fruity and earthy hop aromas. Nice, dry, robust malt, quaffable, and balanced. Good stuff. Draft at zekes even better. Full bodied and balanced. One of those beers that really has the potential to hit the spot.

A go-to brew of mine for a while now. Nice, fluffy head. Cloudy amber color. Spicy, floral hop aroma. Taste is solid: perfectly bitter. Smooth, medium body. A great beer in a can? Yes please.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 APA from a can?! well i tasted it on draft at barleys in greenville and it was quite good. color was light amber with no lacing. aroma is citrusy with orange and grapefruit, hints of pine with some floral notes as well. flavor was nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness taking the lead and malty sweetness in the finish. mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer lingers with sweetness. overall, quite good if you can get over drinking it from a can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
thanks josh. clear amber with a good white head that settles into a thin film. aroma caramel grassy hops with a touch of citrus. bittersweet piney caramel flavor with a lasting bitter caramel grapefruit finish. finish a bit overly bitter. medium body moderate carbonation. decent pale i would drink it again but i dont know if it lives up to the hype.

can. white average fizzy head into cloudy orange body. good lacing present. aromas of light caramel and light to moderate floral hops. flavor is bitter-sweet throughout. I am not sure I would actually call this an APA it has way more flavor that I am used to from this style. I would love to have a cold six-pack of this on a camping trip.
