12 oz can. $8.49 for a sixpack at Total Wine. I winced a bit at paying that price for a sixer of canned beer, but this is no ordinary canned beer. The wonderful hop nose is apparent as soon as the can is popped. Clear orange-amber with a nice thick off-white head and lacing when poured in a glass. The flavor is big and tasty, a real kick in the pants APA. I love the Northern Brewer and Cascade combination, (I use that in homebrewed APAs), and the other hops add to the complexity. It has a decent malt background for balance, but the hops are definitely the centerpiece. I had seen this in the shop a couple of times and passed it by for the price, but changed my mind after seeing the high rating here on the site. Good alcohol kick completely lost in the hops. The most fun you will ever have drinking beer from a can. Excellent!

This beer is quite good. Much better than I anticipated. Has a very malty hoppy flavor. I drank directly from the can, so I will need a follow up tasting. If you love hops, youíll love this. Would be the perfect golf course beer.

I thought this was a pretty nice brew. Similiar to a stronger amber ale or an IPA. Has a nice golden yellow colour, bit of a hop aroma. Flavour is a bit hoppy.

This is a beer for hops fans! Color is a lovely dark honey brown with a nice thick head. Aroma is invitingly hoppy - one good whiff and you know this is no wussy brew. Flavor is strongly hoppy, and mouthfeel is zingy and tingly. I like hoppy beers, so I found this one to be very enjoyable.

Madium citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange with a large white head. Lots of carbonation. Starts mild ends with a moderate citrus hop bite. A little on the watery side.

by far one of the better canned beers iíve ever had. some weird creamy mouthfeel to it that would be better without the slight metallic twinge. flavors of orange, LOTS of hops, and some roasted malt and biscuit malt. some carmel and grapefruit.

12oz can. The opportunity to drink a quality beer out of the can was too much for me so I drank the majority of this from the can, cold. For rating purposes I poured a bit into a glass. Pours a bright copper color with a medium white head. Decent lacing. Smells hoppy but thereís a touch of something unpleasant in there. Canít put my finger on it. Thankfully it doesnít translate to the taste. Tastes hoppy, smooth, incredibly well-balanced, crisp and refreshing. This is about the definition of an everyday pale ale. I could drink this all the time.
