My favorite every day beer.

1st, I love the can movement.
a) It's better aeration, better light protection,
b) better for environment. (Cans being infinitely and 100% recyclable and lower energy to recycle than glass, and cheaper by far to transport and store.).
c) Better for outdoors whether kayaking or gardening or walking.

What's a beer without the outdoors?

2nd - This is a beer that makes no apologies for being an original APA. Close to an IPA, but more amber, citruis, piney, and more beautifully copper colored and tasty like a new penny.

Appearance - One of the most beautiful colors and laced heads.
Smell - Everything I expect from the outdoors in a can.
taste - Original cross between IPA and pale ale, distinctly american and unapologetic, I feel like I respect the makers like I respect Steve Jobs.
Feel - rich, full, right for the afternoon and the outdoors. After cutting the lawn, after kayaking 2 hours.

Overall - a 5 for me because it's my go-to beer.

-from notes
Poured from a "stovepipe" can into a glass

Pours a very nice cloudy copper-orange with a one-finger, foamy head that leaves some light lacing.

The aroma is subtle; grassy, with a bit of lemon.

The taste is marvelous. I get some pine and grassiness up front with a hint of sweet nuttiness and bready malt. There is a nice, lingering bitterness.

Really like the feel of this beer. A little smooth with a nice mouth-coating quality.

Overall, a really good beer that I wish was available to me on a regular basis.
