I had this before from a bottle but found it better from the can. By the way, that can came from the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, some citrus. Taste is bitter, lots of hops, some citrus, a touch of malts, pretty tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine beer.

Serving type: can
