Finally, COOP gets their first beer in a can.
Pours a really beautiful, off white head. Very fluffy with a lot of texture to it. sticks around the entire time, leaves a substantial bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. color is golden amber, looks fairly well carbonated.
In the smell I get fresh, fruity aromas from cascade hops. Intense grape fruit mostly, and then toasted malts. Fairly fragrant.
The taste is extremely good. Hops grab my tongue immediately, bombarding it with juicy grapefruit and some bitterness that quickly leads to a really nice caramel malt profile that is fairly sweet. Really balances out well. It seems much hoppier in the can than I remember it being on Tap in OKC, perhaps it is just fresher, but this is a nicely hopped Amber.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, moderate - slightly high carbonation. Very smooth.
Extremely drinkable, now that this is in cans, i'm going to be buying it a lot more, and i'm glad that it comes in pint sized cans, because 12 ounces certainly is not enough of this delicious beer. Thanks for finally making it happen, COOP!

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice darker red/amber hue with a thin one finger head that faded to leave a light quarter inch off white head and light lacing.
S - Aromas are heavier on the biscuit and caramel, though there is some Cascade hops tucked behind it. Lightly fruity malts, faint faint pine.
T - Taste is rather malty sweet and caramel heavy, bread/biscuit, floral hops, faint faint citrus with more sweetness towards the end. Very, very light pine bitterness.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit on the stickier side, decent carbonation, just drinks heavy.
O - Overall these guys wanted a malt/biscuit heavy Amber ale and well, the succeeded. That being said, this is not my kind of amber...I like much more hops in it. Not my thing.
