Can. Looked like the one in the picture. Orange colored pour, white head. Hoppy aroma and taste. As good as you may think. A nice change of pace from alot of the other IPAs. Worth trying if you can find it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler at Greenville Beer Exchange for $11
A: Pours a cloudy hop-hazed dark copper color with a big fluffy off-white cap. Retention is excellent
S: Whoa, really different from anything I’m used to...Overripe apples (almost smells like rotten apples in a good way if that makes sense), lots of citrus, and a subtle mango note. Really different nose - not "bright" by an IPAs standards, but certainly hoppy...
T: Again, rotten apples, orchard fruit, citrus, a little more mango. Very well balanced and citrusy overall. Perfecty balanced with a slight sweetness
MF/D: Great level or carbonation, medium feel, alcohol is not noticeable. Very drinkable, it really grows on you
Notes: First beer from Westbrook and certainly not my last. Absolutely awesome beer in an interesting and very different way. Highly recommended

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from twelve ounce can purchased at Growlers in Hilton Head Island SC and tasted on July 13, 2012. Cloudy gold hue, small white head, nice sweet hoppy aroma with definite grapefruit notes, delicious bittersweet flavor with grapefruit being present in the taste as well as the aroma. This beer has a bold presence without being overwhelming. This brew would be nearly perfect if the hops were just a tiny bit more assertive but that’s a very minor quibble. I would love to try this on draft. A world class IPA.
