Nice! In a can, now I can have this without dealing with the hassle of a growler. I don't have many people with my thirst for fine craft ales around here. This is one of my favorite beers, I always get it at least one trip to the bar if they have it on draft. I have drank it for years. On to the review. Nice red ale color a little hazy, the smell a bit of hoppiness, but not too strong, just a well rounded American style Ale. Also, I would like to interject here that the person below stated that theirs was 5.7 abv, this one says 5.1 %. I don't know if there is a variance or if they just confused the 1 or a 7. I looked really close to make sure. The taste is a perfect balance of smoothness with just a hint of the hop bitterness but not overly malty either. I have always loved this beer and I am so happy they are canning it now, I hope they keep this up. I have heard some confusing information about whether they are going to keep doing this or rotate it to another in their lineup. I hope this is a harbinger of things to come and not a one and done.
Overall, if you cant find it in cans, drink it on draft, its amazing, if you can find it in cans, don't buy too many because I am going back and picking up another couple of sixers.

Can is 5.7%abv slightly higher than stated above.
Apearance is quite dark amber,semi-transparent with a nice white head.
The smell is pretty faint, some earthy tones.
The taste is bread, biscuit, earth and grains.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The finish is crisp and refreshing.
Overall not bad but boring, glad I only picked up a single can.

Tap pours provide bigger head and nice floral and citrus aromas. Pisgah is 90%+ organic but since hops are not sources organic, the USDA changes made them lose the label. Great mouth feel and better than typical Pale Ale tastes including a nice malty- hoppy balance.

Growler my roommate received from a friend. Poured into a pint glass.
A: Rich burnt orange color. Had a smallish white head that went away quickly and lift low lacing.
S: Pretty faint smell mostly floral scents along with some citrus and hops.
T: Taste like toasted toffee and malts. Hops and citrus present themselves stronger in the taste then in the smell.
M: Carbonation leaves a nice tingling on the tongue. Could have a bit more body to it. This is easy to drink.
O: I really enjoyed this as I have all other Pisgah beers ive tried. If your a fan of the stay I would say defiantly pick this up.

A- Golden in color, thin head
S- There are some hints of citrus, tickles your nose a little bit
T- Fantastic American styled ale, nice full body and goes down smooth, a beer snobs wet dream basically, tastes so good you'll want a few but be careful! i had two and i was buzzing pretty good.
M- You can tell its an ale that's for sure, different than most beers because it's organic
overall, give this brewery some love, try out green man as well
