4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Definitely a bit pricey, at $4.25 a can… but worth a try nun the less!
The beer pours a rich amber body… light carbonation, but a massive ivory head. The aroma is explosive! A wallop of hops smacks you right in the face… the malt bill must be huge because this is one chewy snack. The senses are inundated with caramelized brown sugar, fresh grapefruit and tangerine, pine resin and cedar wood chip spiciness. Overall, I would drink this beer regularly… if I could afford to do so!

Mmm.....beer in a can. Already having had Old Chub and Dale’s Pale Ale, I know better than to be surprised that there’s a quality brew under this pop-top. The head was big and short-lived. The aroma is huge with lots of piney hops. The flavor, though, is a bit of a let-down at first. Kind of weak, flat and unfulfilling at the start. The flavors continue to resonate and develop after each sip ultimately making this a good one to sip.

I ranked this beer high in aroma, appearance and palate but the flavor was lacking complexity and fullness so overall it got low marks. Mahogony colored pour with large head. Aromas full of hops, oranges and cherries. Taste is mostly alcohol with a background piney and light fruity and resiny. The body is very chewy and thick and the finish is alcohol and grapefruity. Not bad at all for a canned beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark ruby-orange color with a thin white head. Sniffed the can after opening, before pouring, and got a nosefull of hop aroma. Real piney and fresh. Taste begins with sharp resiny hop flavors. The finish lacks any lingering hop flavor, but the beer is so drinkable, I can’t knock it too bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a rich amber color with a pretty stable light white head. Very nice and inviting looking. Big piney hops aroma, quite monstrous. Very sharp. Also has some grapefruit hints and citrus. Very big taste although the hops arent overwhelming, but still bigger than normal. Very smooth finish, which I wasnt expecting. Pretty bitter towards the finish and I get alot of funked out citrus as well. Hard to imagine canned beer being this good and complex.

The aroma has grapefruit and pine hops along with caramel. The appearance is deep amber with a three finger head. The palate is sticky as advertised. Good beer in a can? Thanks Gordon.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly resiney aroma, some citrus, and caramel. Pours a dark amber. Hops are definitely the defining flavor, citrus, pine, spicey, a little alcohol, resin, with a dry hoppy finish with a dash of caramel in there somewhere.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Pours a dark, reddish-amber appearance; fluffy, off-white head with big-bubbled lacing. Citrus and grapefruit and minerals in the aroma; set against a backdrop of tea-like malts. Full, chewy mouthfeel: lots of grapefruit and citrus; dank hop presence; wet malts and maple syrup backdrop; well-balanced. Lengthy, citrus hop and wet malt finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep amber colour with a tan head. Sweet, close to buttery aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity note. Buttery flavor, seems diacetyl infected.
