Copper. Woody malty flavor with floral hops. Very light carbonation. Its crazy that a beer like this comes out of a can.

2005 Great Arizona Beer Festival.
Can poured a nice copper with nice head.
Aroma is citrus and hops with a great easy drinking hopy flavor.
This is too good of a beer to come in a can!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy orange with a big, off-white head. Spicy grapefruit aroma. Citrusy, resiny, with a earthy, dirty finish. Kind of mushy malt profile. Long, sticky aftertaste. No metallic tang. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

Deep amber with a small head and loads of lacing. Resinous, citrusy nose. Interesting array of hops, as the commercial description can attest and enough to tip the balance toward the more hoppy APA’s. Found some of the maltiness in the latter whiffs of the aroma, and on the back of the tongue on the palate. Nicely carbonated, medium-bodied, with a dry, lingering finish.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2005 I am very impressed with this beer, a very nice APA. Nice floral hoppy aroma, and good malts. Taste is more of the same, good flavor hops, good malts, and a nice bitter bite. And it came in a can! I plan on having at least a 6 of this in my fridge for those of my friends who are ’non beer afficiandos’. When they complain that all I like is the thick heavy beers, I’ll present this and say "See, it comes in a can, so it’ll be right up your alley."

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2006 Can... Sparkling clear, golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Honey, apricot and pine in the nose. Chewy caramel malts, but also moderately bitter. Good balance. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, well-bittered finish. Thanks to springslicker for the can!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve had this stuff numerous times while flying on Frontier and is the best Pale Ale I’ve had in a can so far. This stuff proves micros should be in cans. Lightly bitter and more caramel that hoppy. Just wish I had a glass to drink this from instead of a plastic cup.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Cpt. Cougar for this. 12oz CAN. 51°. NB worthy glass. Reddish/copper color with a 1/4" off white head. Steady carbonation with little tiny bubbles. When the head recedes, it coats the glass. Aroma is somewhat sweet with spicy, piney, and a touch of citrus hoppiness. Nice malt base and some good hops flavor. The hops have a mostly piney flavor. There is a bit of an agressiveness to the flavor, it might be smokiness, it might be alchohol, or just intense bittering. The finish is a hops bitterness that fades away after 15-20 seconds, leaving a hint of the piney hops. Mouthfeel is good. This is a good APA. I personally like the option of buying a quality beer in a can and I would purchase this for canoeing if it was sold around here. There is one slighty strange flavor that bothers me a bit and knocks the flavor from a 7 to a 6.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper colour. Low carbonation – nice one. Resiny, woody c-hops in the aroma with crystal malts and a hint of florals. Well-balanced body shows toasty notes and floral/citric hoppiness. Fairly bitter example.

I was skeptical but this a great beer out of a can. Amber body, medium light cream head. Nice citrusy hops in the aroma with some citrus and even a little smokiness. Strong hoppy flavor with nice citrus and malt balance. A nice pale ale.
