Drank my first ever can of the new Punk IPA against the bottle to compare. The can had a BB Date of 24 Dec 11 making it two and and half months older. Both poured into its own identical high tumbler
Obviously similar to the bottle in appearance but the can has put forward a clearer more sparkling looking beer with a pretty fresh aroma. Somewhat thinner in body too but the backbone and slight carbonation seems to support it better making it more rounded and supportive of the flavour. Again, ginger at the end after some fairly reasonable bitterness. This sure seems fresher.
Not bad at all. Certainly merits the B+
Round one to the can. Looks like I'll need to buy some more!

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
