I purchased this at Oliver's in Albany, enjoyed chilled from the can in a tulip pint.
The color is beautiful golden with amber hue and 3 finger smooth pale white head with frothy look and lace is foamy. The smell is strong citrus scent of hops with light fruity yeast and subtle pine in the hop aroma with light malt sweet essence with mild floral note. The feel is decent with good hop presence and gentle caramel in the peripheral with slight creamy texture from medium high carbonation with dry finish and subtle alcohol.
The taste has a good amount of citrus flavor with bitter grapefruity quality from American Hops with slight orange zest aspect and mellow pine notes with some light grassy astringency and alcohol in the last sips with very light malt sweetness supporting. The Overall impression is a solid take on the American IPA style but not exceptional- pretty drinkable though I wouldn't seek it out.

12oz can, no canning date (marked "- - -" on the bottom), poured into a Darkness goblet 7/20/2014.
A- Hazy light copper body with a one finger white head with fair retention time. Drops into a medium sized collar and leaves bits and pieces of lacing.
S- Pineapple, citrus, green hops, a bit of toffee and bread. Smells like a beer that's just been put into the primary fermenting vessel, in that it's "green" in a good way.
F- A bit of floral notes up front, some bread and toffee in the middle, with a bit of pine and a non-descript bitterness on the backend, perhaps pineapple. Not super bitter, but quite good.
M- Medium in body, a bit creamy, neither dry nor resinous. Drinks very easily.
O- It's a solid IPA. Nothing pops about it, but the profile is fairly unique in that it smells like a green beer. Perhaps thats why the can is green.
