Poured from a tap. Cloudy orange with a big white head that lingered and left nice lace.
Smells strong citrus and hops hops with subtle melon (honeydew?).
Soft mouthfeel that is somewhat creamy.
The taste was very interesting. It has an initial burst of of citrus, grapefruit, and pine followed by a malty middle and ends with a dry hoppy aftertaste.
I truly enjoyed this one.

Can pours an orange yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is heavy on pine and floral notes. Taste is heavy on the citrus and pine hop flavors, a slight malty finish initially with a moderately bitter finish. Light to medium body and mouthfeel. Great beer out of a can, actually tastes better in the can than pouring it into a glass I found it lost some carbonation when doing so. Canít go wrong with a canned IPA to take with you places that glass bottles canít go.

From a 12-oz can. Pours reddish golden with a frothy head that clings to the sides of the glass. Aromas of malt, pine and citrus hops. Flavors are creamy malt with bready notes and bitter citrus. Slightly nutty finish with a lingering hop bite. Creamy mouthfeel, but nicely balanced with carbonation. This is a damned nice pale ale. Absolutely delicious!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pale gold with a thick clingy head.
Aroma: Almost wheaty, clean, hops are like sweet tarts candy. Very clean, very hoppy, distinct grapefruit rind aroma.
Flavour: Clean and citrusy hop character, resinous bitterness, almost piney, good balace with malty sweet character.
Mouthfeel: Light body creamy and well carbonated.
Overall: Assertively bitter, resinous hops clean and a little like a pale ale on steroids. Who says you canít get good beer in a can?

strong hop aroma with a slight orange aroma in there too, prevelant bitter after taste, dark golden color, definately was skeptical about how well beer could taste in a can, but after this beer that has completely diminished
