look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Brilliant amber color with 1-inch off-white creamy head. Very pleasant hop nose followed by hints of malt. Forward bitterness on the palate. Refreshing and cleansing. Prepared for food. Moderate-plus carbonation. Medium-light body. Pleasant lingering with slight bitterness. Somewhat moreish.

Appearance: Hazy amber, good head.

Smell: Mild citrus.

Taste: Very balanced pale ale. Bready malt, not too sweet, then a mild citrus finish.

Overall: Picked up a 6 pack of cans as backup beer for the tailgate. Poured one later into a glass for a standard review. This is a decent pale ale, I suppose I'm a little disappointed in the aroma. Pretty standard tasting also, not too memorable, just an easy drinking pale ale.

Been some time since I've had this one, but I see a new can release, so I'm down.

It's interesting that the more beer I try, the more I seem to notice very particular characteristics. This is dry hopped? Well I certainly seem to be able to taste the dry hops. The flavor profile goes more for a leafy tone than an oil or spicy one. Nice overall flavor. Smooth and consistent. Pleasurable drinking experience.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a light brownish color and left an attractive mound of foam on top that lingered. Could have sworn I smelled a hint of apples among with other fruity flavors. The taste was great. There are clearly multiple fruit flavors in there but it is not over the top and you can still look like a man drinking it. Went down great. No complaints.

3.55/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, this APA presents as a hazy amber color with a 1.5" sticky foamy head leaving decent lacing down the sides.

This ale has a punky hopped aroma, with leather, dried tobacco, mild apricot, and cracked black pepper notes.

Taste starts mildly soapy, with peach, malt, floral hops, and a tangy finish.

A thin to medium bodied beer, this has a slightly acidic finish that is a bit off-putting.

The beauty of the craft beer in a can revolution is that camp-outs are no longer the bland, bloating lite-beer blah-fests they used to be. Still, just because it is craft in a can doesn't make it great for a camp out. This beer is the perfect example of that; not terrible, but certainly not remarkable. Think of it as the craft beer in a can you take in reserve for that late night poker game, but not the one you enjoy floating down stream. The one good camp-out quality to it is its relatively low ABV; at 4.85%, you won't be napping your way through the afternoon after a few of these in the hot sun.

5/8/2012

A: A cross between amber and brown. It's much darker than I expected. For being unfiltered and having the word hazed in it it's surprisingly not hazy at all.

S: I haven't had this in at least 5 years. It's much different from how I remember. Very malty, but quite nice. There a pleasant blend of caramel and milk chocolate. It's bready and biscuity. The focus is really on the malt aspect of the beer. This is pretty similar to an English Dark Mild, surprisingly. Earthy notes blend with a light nuttiness.

T: The flavor is much like the aroma, with the focus being on rich malt: caramel, bread, biscuit, and faint chocolate. There's a low earthy bitterness. The finish is bready and biscuity.

M: Lower medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: I'd think I was drinking the wrong beer if a rep hadn't told me they'd recently been entering this into the English Mild Ale category at competitions. Much better than expected.

I love that this one is available in a 12 can pack now. Poured from 12oz can to pint glass:

Looks nice. A mellow, muted gold body with a finger of dense, slightly off white head. Decent lacing and hardly any beading.

The nose is good and balanced... earthy and citrus hops cut with caramel and sweet grain.

The taste highlights many of the same qualities - again, very balanced and totally session worthy.

Overall, this is a solid brew. Not really my go-to style but I'm all in when it's this good.

Poured into chalice glass from can

A: Hazy burnt amber color with a two finger light tan foamy head. Recedes sort of quick but leaves nice amounts of sticky lacing.

S: Mildly sweet bready malt, hint of citrus and pine hop aroma. Malt overpowers the hops for sure

T: Watery, tinny, mild hop flavor, and a sweet malty finish.

M: Light, watery, mild carbonation.

O: VERY disappointed in this. I thought this beer was good years ago out of a bottle, would like to try a different batch.

Nice amber appearance with a slight white head. Citric aroma with backdrop of sweetness from the malt and some pine. Some citric flavors, some sweetness from the malt backbone, and dry, earthy, piney finish. Moderate level bitterness but nothing offensive to a non-hophead like me. A nice medium bodied to this with some carbonation. Overall, a nice beer that I enjoy but not one that I find myself visiting too often.

12 oz can poured into a snifter:

A- Pours a non-transparent amber or light brown color. Creamy 3 finger head with solid retention and very nice lacing.

S - Strong dry hopped aroma; floral and piney. Some sweetness caramel is present, but is relatively weak.

T - Watery open followed by a piney aftertaste. Very resinous taste. It's hard to find any malt character.

M - wet and flat.

D - The appearance and aroma of this beer are quite good, but the taste is sure to disappoint.

12oz can served in tulip.

A: Pours a lovely amber that is actually quite clear. Shifts between ruby red and golden straw depending on the light. Big fluffy eggshell head. Above average retention. Leaves some lace.

S: Fresh pine. Mint. Herbal aroma. Some citrus here are there. Sweet caramel hiding in the background.

T: Pine sprigs and sweet honey. grassy hops. Caramel malt. Hint of butterscotch.

M: Medium body. Silky feel.

O: Very solid beer. At 4.85% it's an easy quaffer. Love that it's now available in cans.

Pours a hazy amber color with a 1 inch off-white head that fades to a thin cap. Random legs and drips of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smells solely of fresh hops: citrus zest, pine trees, and herbal aromas. Interestingly, the taste of the hops is subdued with malt flavors taking over. There is also a slight metallic taste that I assume is from the can. Mild hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a medium body with a bubbly but slightly thick moutfeel. Overall, the metallic taste and subdued hop flavors are not very good. I am not too sure I would get this one again. My first beer from Boulder.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper, with 2 fingers of eggshell-white head. This retains with a thin foaminess, yet this has quite a robust flare-up to it, leaving back a latticework of thick swathes of lacing. The aroma smells floral and leafy, with a moderately bright citric feel to the nose. Underlying sweet graininess mixes in to give this a green tanginess in the nostrils.

The taste is bitter with citrus flavors, surrounded on the edges by a leafy and herbal feel (which picks up even more as this warms). There is a rather pronounced toasted graininess here from the malts, which while offering up some sweetness, mostly lingers in the finish of this along with a dry and gritty pithiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a soft and creamy feel along the back of the palate which then gets sharper the longer it sits on the tongue. There is some slickness to the feel, which helps keep this relatively easy overall in the mouth.

This was a decent Pale with some potential but it just never really did cut loose like it seemed to want to. Maybe there was a little too much of an herbal feel and toasted presence here that negated much of that fresh feeling citric bitterness that was present. This was certainly drinkable but there was nothing overly special about this one.

Sampled from a can with no apparent freshness date. Dirty copper orange with a deep haze. Poured with an impressive fizzy, off-white foam that reduced to a healthy cap. Decent sticky lacings on the glass. Citrus arange and lemon aromas with a light sweet malty aroma beneath. Smooth and oily feel. On the thinner side of medium bodied with nice carbonation. Light citrus orange and lemon flavors that are well balnaced with ligth malty flavors. Clean, crisp, semi-dry finish. Very easy to drink, light and r refreshing. But generally not unusual.

I have had this great session beer in the Can, bottle, and draft.
Not sure which I prefer. Maybe the can becasue of the cost and I have never had a bad can but I have had bad bottles

The head is fluffy white and the beer pours cloudy/hazy.

The aroma is hops with some residual malty aroma
C- hops for sure (I hope)

Body is thin but there is a lot of flavor for a fairly low alocohol beer. Great hoppy flavor and a malty backbone. almost bready in the finish.

This is a drinker for a long day of bar-b-que and hanging out with friend but be sure to buy enough because it goes quick.

Can into pint glass
A – Frothy off-white 2 finger+ head did not allow me to pour the whole can into the pint glass, left very nice lacing as it receded, and poured hazy slightly red amber 4.5
S – Primarily a hops & citrus nose, slightly grassy, very slight sweetness 4
T – Moderate pine hop. Slight orange citrus, caramel, and biscuit notes. Mild malt character fits this beer well; this brew is now on my best of pale ale list. 4.5
M – Light to moderate mouthfeel, moderate carbonation 3.5
O – Tasty with top notch drinkability, I want another. A prime candidate for the definition of a long session beer, a beer I will buy by the 12pack or case for events or general debauchery. 4.5

I've had this many times in the past but never from a can. This can is courtesy of my buddy Dave (backfat), which really wasn't necessary. He gave it to me for running a bottle of Cantillon to him.

It pours a hazy orange on the verge of amber with a billowing two finger sudsy off white head. The head sat atop the pint glass for several minutes before crumbling upon itself. It's very hoppy for the alcohol percentage. In the nose you are hit with hops before getting honey and carmel malt. It's very dry and has some floral aspects to it. It's definitely appealing and very aromatic. The flavors aren't as sharp as they are out of the bottle. It's only lightly hoppy and has a good amount of malt to it. It's sweetness is comparable to honeycream. Something is off though. It's a mellower version of this beer from a bottle. The mouthfeel too is off. It's very watery and isn't crisp like it should be. This beer would normally give me cotton mouth but it's so watery that it's actually quenching my thirst. I do like this beer but perhaps the can does it detriment.

This beer pours an amber to light copper color with a nearly nonexistent white head. there is a bit of hop aroma when the can is opened but when poured into a glass its gone. there is little hop flavor and very little bitterness. the mouthfeel is light on carbonation and the beers is overall just a pretty big disappointment. will not buy again

Amber colores beer. Solid white head about 1 finger high leaving some lacing as it fades.
Pretty hoppy beer with a good citrus bouquet. Malts are mostly reliagated to the backgroud in this case.
I get a sweet caramel malt taste up front with bittering hops. Flavor wise, there is not much hop flavor in the taste, just some light bitterness.
A smooth and balanced beer.

Pours a hazed auburn with caramel hues, thinner white head, clouds of lacing.

Doughy caramel malt with bitter hops in the nose, light breadiness and sweetness.

Bitter citrus hops up front with orange and lemon peel. Plenty of malt backbone with bread crust, caramel, and biscuit. More dry hoppiness towards the finish.

Medium body, a bit sticky and creamy. Drinks quickly, nice dry hopping effect, pretty good flavor.

A CAN in a PINT glass.

Boulder's Hazed & Infused comes out the can a dark copper color settling into the glass the same color. A nice pour yeilded a inch of fluffy off white foam thats leaving rings.

A nice interplay between malt and dry hops. This one has a nice scent of floral hops with some tame citrus plus some caramel rounding things out.

A nice APA, the dry hopping shows, yet not so much leaving a fairly malty aftertaste with caramel. The citrus is upfront with tame tropics plus some earthy taste from a certain hop strain.

Feel is on point and not to malty. A step above light bodied. By the look of the beer I was thinking this would be a malt bomb, but Im surprised by how this evens out. This is a fresh ass can, so there is that.

If Im ever camping in Colorado, I'll grab a case of this to see the sites. A good pale made for all day drinking.

12oz can poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours a hazy (go figure) and somewhat dirty color of amber with a short finger of tan foam and tons of sticky webs of lacing all over the sides of the glass.

S - Fruity and citrusy hops up front...a bit on the subdued side of intensity. A bit of cinnamony spiciness too. Light sugary sweetness and some hints of cloves too.

T - Similar to the aroma, a bit phenolic, medicinal and clovey...not sure this was intended or really fits the style too well, but it isn't at all unpleasant and actually kinda nice and different. Spicy cinnamon, citrusy hops and extremely minor malt aspect at the base.

M - Light to medium body with a firm mid-level carbonation the gives a good liveliness and tingle on the tongue. Cloves and phenolics linger into the aftertaste increasing the noticability of this character.

D - Looking at the can for a date code of some kind, I'm coming up empty...some of the flavors here make me wonder about the freshness. I am not disappointed with the flavors I'm getting, but they aren't what I remember of this beer, or what I expect out of the style. Has a bit of a Belgian yeast aspect to it, which is never a bad thing. Good in an unexpected way, but not the hoppy beer that I recall having in the past.

Another gift from a CANtact and one that I have been anxious to try for a while! The CANQuest (TM) is becoming like a truffle-seeking pig: I will root them out, no matter where those pesky CANs might be hiding. CAN you dig it?

From the CAN: "oh, the places you [CAN] go!"; "A lazy river. In the woods. On the trail. Around the campfire. At the beach. Tasty waves. Tossing bags. On the greens. Before the show. The big game. Splitter cracks. The fishing hole. Park picnics. Backyard BBQ's. Epic days. No boundaries."; "For all the places you want to enjoy a Hazed, now you [CAN]"; "Hazed & Infused is an unfiltered amber ale, dry-hopped during fermentation for a unique, fresh hop flavor and aroma."; "Cheers and enjoy!"; "- - Your friends at Boulder Beer Company Colorado's 1st Microbrewery".

The Crack revealed yet another CAN filled nearly to the brim with beer. The Glug left me with two rocky fingers of ecru head with decent retention. Color was a deep orangish-amber with just a slight haze, leaving me visually disappointed. C'mon, man, it's supposed to be "Hazed" and i have seen better chill haze. I want some haze, dang it! Nose was really piney, like a cold day in the middle of a forest and taking a deep breath. That's living! Mouthfeel was medium with an appropriate amount of hops for the style (but not necessarily for me) in the mouth. Finish was likewise hoppy, stylistically correct, but lacking the Ooomph to make me really want a lot of it. If it were a choice between yet another AmeriCAN Adjunct Lager and this, Hazed & Infused would win, hands down, but if Lucky U (also from Colorado) made an appearance, this is getting left out of the cooler. Sorry.

Smell- hoppy goodness with a nice biscuity malt profile.

Taste- much stronger malts than the nose indicated. Hops aren't nearly as prevalent.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied a bit creamier than expected.

Drinkability- not my favorite of the style, but decent.
