12 ounce can shared with soccer290. I will be honest here... the only reason that I bought this brew was because it was an IPA in a can! I actually was impressed after pouring this beer. It had a nice copper pour with a one finger width white frothy head. It stuck around through the duration of the beer and left nice lacing on the side of my glass. The aroma was very nice also. It consisted of strong hops with some citrus and pine in the background. The taste was a bit bland though; watery hop character with a hint of pine. Overall, this was a decent IPA. Nothing special, but good for what it was... and it is in a can!

12 oz can shared with General66. I thought Bobby was an idiot getting this, so we will see. Pours a copper color with a finger high white head that is thick and stays. Smells of a ton of hops, some pine, citrus, and a bit malt. Tastes of hops, and that is it. Very light bodied, and the smell is deceiving. Interesting, and great for the novelty of the can, but I donít think I would get it (Bobby: "Itís a beer in a can!")

Poured from a can. Hazy deep amber pour with a foamy lasting and lacing head. Lots of pine and citrus hops in the aroma, along with sweet caramel malt. Lots of fresh hop in the flavor as well, with a good malt backbone. Fairly thick and sticky on the palate. A nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods downtown. Pours a dark clear amber color with a medium lived fluffy beige head. Smell is really nice as this bottle is very fresh. Pine, sap, and fruity hops with notes of pineapple and resin. Taste is nicely bitter with a dark caramel and resin like sweetness and bitterness. Starts out fairly bitter but finishes a touch smoother. Medium to slightly full body. A touch watery on the finish, but this is actually quite good and very drinkable.
