"Microbrew in a can! What will they think of next?"
Okay, first off, no "Ffft!" from the can when you pop the top. VERY disconcerting! I know, I know, micro, low-carbonation, all that shizzle, but, even more than bottles, when you pop a can of beer, you expect a crisp-sounding crack and a hefty puff of gas. I propose inflating the can with some Nitrogen to alleviate said psychological letdown.
To alleviate the can-guzzling disappointment, I suggest pouring this beer into a glass. "Ah! There. Now we're back to normal."
Hey, hey! No wonder this had no fizz. This is a serious ale! Hoppy, smelly, cloudy, and...pretty damn good.
Too bad it comes in a can.

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
