16 oz can, via bu11zeye. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a nice frothy one inch light beige head. Pretty good retention. The nose is light floral hops and slightly grainy caramel maltiness. Pretty bitter given how light the hops were in the nose, it’s grassy and leafy with a little too much crystal malt going on that gives it that annoying stale iced teal like quality, especially on the finish. Fairly short finish. Mouthefeel is light bodied with a bit of a sticky crystal malt character that makes it not especially crisp. Moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, a fairly forgettable APA, but not the worst.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a white head. Aroma is of some earthy floral hops and some some caramel bready malts. A pretty solid bitterness in this one but it seems really thin overall.

got this pint can from cornfiled. foam bubbles up as soon as i open the can. big big off white head, fizzy looking, hazy copper color, some lace. nose of pine hops, trace of citrus, hint of caramel. flavor of creamy caramel, touch of pine. as beer warms, the hops become more prominent. creamy mouth feel, mildly bitter finish. decent, but i wish the hops were more prominent.

Graciously shared by GodOfThunder. Can, pours amber with a spotty white head. Nose quite reminiscent of pineapple upside down cake, though fairly restrained. The hops and caramel notes blend quite smoothly. Grainy malt flavor with some pine hops and a bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Nose is interesting, overall fairly mild in character.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 15, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 16oz can, batch #3. English pint glass. Copper/amber color with a dense one fingered cream colored head. Aroma is piney hops, but is very faint (due the head?). Flavor is earthy, floral, and piney hops as well as some light caramel and a strong bitterness (for the style). Not bad, but nothing special. Thanks for the chance to try this Tim.

16 ounce can. Pours dark oxidized copper with beige head. Nose is mostly toffee and toasted bread with a shot of hops at the end. The flavor is pretty well balances with a shot of agressive hop bitterness at the end. Lingers a bit. Abrassive carbonation. Its not all that bad, but I won’t be buying much of this.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Can pours amber color with off white head. Has a sweet malt smell with undertones of hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and is too malty for my taste for this style. It would have been much better if it were a little hoppier.

Friend introduced me to this beer made just a little north of where I live. Great flavor combinations, I enjoy how the malt and hops are in balance and do not overpower each other. I usually do not think of good beers coming from cans, but this beer just goes to prove that you shouldn’t judge something by its packaging.

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2010
A: Pours a golden shade with tones of amber. Nice tall head with no real retention or lace. S: Aromas of caramel malt, pine, and light citrus. T: Malty sweetness, with subtle hoppy notes. More pine than citrus. There is a big wet cardboard like thing going on that is less than impressive. M: Medium in body, ample carbonation. D: Rather forgettable.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2010
10/22/10. 16oz can. GUSHER! Cold, sat in fridge, never shook - exploded everywhere. Extremely cloudy orange pour with tons of particulates all over with a small khaki head. Light caramel and malty aroma with spicy hops and a touch of citrus. Malty, earthy hop flavor that is piney and spicy as well. Meh.
