16 oz cans. Very good pale ale. Has a perfect amount of hops, and a nice flavor. My little boys like the video game can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From pint can to glass, a soft orange color with a mountain of creamy beige head. Cool retro graphics to boot. Tons of sticky lacing and an everlasting head. Nose is light and mild, citrus and bready malts. Not much to it, but it is soft and inviting. Flavors of citrus, pine, caramel, and bread. Simple and smooth. Sessionable all day long.

Citrusy and mild hop aroma. Quite smooth and a top notch pale ale. The galaxy hops come through perfectly without overpowering this ale. One of my favorite go-to pales, and the artwork on the cans is pretty cool as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from a pint can courtesy of @AmberBrews. It poured a hazy golden-orange with a frothy beige head. A citrus hop nose with a sharp hoppy taste.

Probably one of the better pales I've had. Loads of hops, with a bright, citrus quality. Not only is it canned, but it's an awesome can. Definitely recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice beer. Pours a hazy golden with a nice head. Citrus and malty aroma. Lots of grapefruit flavor and other citrus. Not really a pale. Leaning toward an ipa. But very nice.

Can at Steasy66 tasting, CBC Islington. Thanks to Ryan. It pours a hazy orange color with a big white head. Smells citric with some biscuity malt notes. Similar in the taste with grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation.

Draft at Burger Joint in the Ogilve Transportation Center, Chicago. A "mere" pale ale smell, not big on hops at first. A cloudy gold color, and the usual thin, sudsy IPA head. But once in my mouth, the large hop note grabs on and doesn’t let go. Big chunk of citrus and resin. I had not read the description before trying, so I thought it was just an overload of the usual Three C’s. Settles into a coating of pine tar on the palate, then some orange peel. Jealous that this train terminal now clearly has better beer than Union Station. All we can muster is The Snuggery.

Can at a tasting. From notes. Herbal and grassy with a bunch of tropical citrus. Loads of different hop flavors, but nothing really stands out. Good, but no real "wow" factor here.
