Pours to a copper color with off-white head and good lacing. Good floral aorma with hints of citrus fruits. Taste very hoppy with a pleasant aftertaste. Been a while since Iíve had beer out of a can, but this was a pleasant surprise over what you usually get. This would be a really good beer for a hot summerís day.

At Virginia Beer Festival. I have to say this was a very refreshing beer. Citrus, grass, orange, and hops. Well rounded and finished quite nice in my opinion.

Clean hop and malt aromawith some grassy and citrus notes, amber orange colornotice the hops right away tangy and citrusy ,carmely malt as good backing,good bitter finish,nothing to indicate it came from a can,really mindboggling. i think Mr Koch from Sam Adams will have to reconsider his anti can campaign

12 oz can. Clear orange, no bubbles. Frothy off-white head that holds on. Green grass, hay and sweet citrus. Bitter hops turn sweet and chewy. Citrus notes with woody pine. A little carb adds some bite. Medium light and very drinkable. A cross between Nugget Nectar and Alpha King.

Can at the LI Beer Festival. Being a beer can collector, I especially enjoy seeing microbrews using cans. The brewer explained to me the new technology in cans these days makes them better carriers for beer than bottles. If this beer and Old Chub are any indication, theyíre right. Nice fruity hop aroma and flavor. Also the appropriate amount of hop bitterness. Iíd love to see these on my local shelves.

Best beer Iíve had from a can, hands down. Very tasty. Iím not even going to pour it into a glass. Very hoppy aroma and taste. Slightly bitter finish. Awesome beer.

Can (12oz). Good beer in a can - Iím up for it! Poured hazy orange with a smallish creamy white head. Smells like a very good APA - orange/citrus sweet & resiny hops with plenty of yeasty light roast malt backing. Tastes right too - a little light in flavour, but resiny/orange zest bitter hops with a little less malt backing, a touch smokey. Mouthfeel is creamy, lively and astringent - I could quibble and say itís a tad watery, but six-packs of this at the corner store? Iíd be there in a shot; good stuff.

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.
