I think this brewery's idea to skew conventional wisdom and serve their beer in cans is novel and necessary. After tasting it I'm not sure why more companies don't do it! This beer pours an amber color with a generous head. The smell is deliciously hoppy with an extra sugar kick. The taste is special as well, and for some reason you can tell it seems to come from a can. It gives it a certain crispness, but in now way cheapens the beer as a whole. The bitterness seems to take over the mouth and suppress any maltyness that would otherwise be apparent.

-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.
