From the can, pours a hazy, dark golden color, with a thick, white head that leaves a nice lacing down the side of the glass. Smells of grassy hops, some citrus, some lemon peel aromas. Tastes bitter and hoppy, a smoothness at the end, more floral than grassy. Really smooth for a pale ale.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 Enjoyed at the Dark Lord/Hampton Inn tasting 06. Pretty good hoppy sweet aroma. Clean orangey amber with a khaki head. Well balanced with a plesant bitterness. Short finish. Medium to full body with the perfect level of carbonation. I love the can. I wish this would make it over to MOKAN. Welcome in my glass anytime.

Straight from the can. Looks reddish colored with a white head. Pretty hoppy, smooth to drink. Hints of malts in this as well. Not bad. A little too heavy to be a lawn mower beer (that was what i bought it for - resorted to High Life after a can of this). Interesting to say the least. Ill rerate once I pour it out into a glass. Good beer in a can is def. something new to me.

Wow! I havenít had an American Pale this solid since, well, ever! This beer is like an epic battle between malts and hops. Just when you think one is going to over-power the other, the tide of battle turns and youíre left at a flavor impasse. I must say the can is a sexy twist as well. Thereís a slight metallic taste (but that can be alleviated by pouring the beer into a glass I suppose). I wonder if itís cheaper to can beer than it is to bottle it.

Can. Rich orange gold color with creamy white head. Big, fresh hoppiness smoothed over perfectly with soft, sweet orange flavors. Nearing IPA-ness, but round and soft. Delicious. I looked this beer over at first because of the can, but this stuff is foí real.

Has a powerful hop aroma form the snifter and makes plenty of rocky clumps in the head of the beer. Has nice caramel orange color and hops abound in the taste along with bready yeast. The finish is a little piney being moderate enought to still be classified as a regular pale ale, and one of my favorites. Now Iím going to finish the rest off in the can out on the porch.

On tap at the brewpub, 4/13/06: Bright orange with an excellent sticky head. Nice little hoppy aroma. Yummy citric hoppiness wit a solidly sweet malt backdrop.

a light golden orange colo rw/ a full thick small bubled white head and soem great lacing. Aroma is mostly hop a spicy note and a good floral hop aroma. Palate is full well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor is a very nice APA, good amount of nice hop some floral and definate citrus notes w/ a full malty backbone. Very good.. I canít believe this came in a can.

Amber with a thick, lingering white head. Taste is hops with a decent malt presence. Overall, fairly bitter for a pale ale, but thats part of why I like it. This could easily become a new fallback/session beer for me and the can actually makes it more convenient on some occassions.
