Bonus appearance point for being from a can. Smells kinda citrusy at first, then an earthy note. Flavor is a mix of pine and citrus, then a slightly earthy, sticky finish. Some kind of unpleasant vegetable notes as it warms.

Pours amber with thick off-white head and foamy lacing. Smells strongly of pine. Tastes strongly of pine. I didn’t realize this was an IPA (listed as an American Pale Ale, but described as an IPA).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, pale reddish-orange color with a frothy, light brown head. A great looking beer to be stuffed into a can like this. For best enjoyment, ya gotta get this stuff out of the can! Light aroma of earthy, spicy hops. Smooth in the mouth with a light syrup texture - strong, spicy hops on the tip of the tongue, then a straight-up bitterness that hits the center of the tongue all the way back to the throat, leaving behind a nice bitter malt aftertaste. Strong for a pale ale, you can really feel the IBUs in this one. Sure, its body may be light, but it packs a sweet little punch.

12 oz can given to me by csbosox. Best by 04/06/11 stamped on the bottom edge of the can. Pour is a mostly clear ruby copper brown with a nicely formed off white two inch head. Head falls with some nice splotchy lacing. Aroma is a dull resin hop and some nutty malt. Sort of a woody thing in there as well. Taste is the resin up front, dry and a touch vegetal on the hops. Mid taste, the nut picks up, but is certainly underneath the hops. Palate is medium to thin, coats the mouth briefly, then dries out to a mineral - vegetal finish. Thanks for giving me this one Chris.

Can. Poured a hazel amber color with a very small white head. Aroma was caramel, nuts, and hops. Flavor was sweet and hoppy. Very well balanced though. Malty backbone. Medium body. A great beer. It is usually hit or miss with SKA. Either awesome beers or average run of the mill beers. This on was awesome.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to pint glass (Courtesy of Hopper...THANKS Josh!) Pours a clear copper (Pale ale?), with a slightly off white head, diminishes quickly to some chunky looking lacing. Aroma is nice. Pine and citrus hops, backed with crystal malt. Taste starts out with the same hop notes, fades to some sweet-ish malts with minimal hop bitterness. While not intense, the bitterness does stick around a while however. A bit thin on the mouthfeel, interesting with the way it finishes slightly sweet. A decent brew. Glad I got the chance to try it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap - seems more british in character - medium amber color - semi-dry, biscuity british-y maltiness (marris otter?) - pronounced golding hop spiciness and earthy character - a slight yeasty/doughiness to it, but most dry, with a light mineral character on the back end - decent.
