It's true -- this is probably the best craft beer in a can you can find. Can opens with a lot less fizz than I would have expected, but maybe that's because I'm used to opening soda cans or beer cans that have so much carbon dioxide added the effervescence hits your face when you open it. Poured rather vigorously into a pint glass, this was a beautiful coppery color, with a modest but short-lived head. The taste is pure West coast pale ale, with storng citrus and pine hops supported by a delightful amber malty backbone. The mouthfeel is a little disappointing -- I actually wish it was a bit more carbonated.
An excellent beer that may end up being a pioneer in the movement back toward putting good craft beer in a can. Your Bud/Miller/Coors-from-a-can drinking buddies (if you have any), would probably find this has waaaay too much taste, which is one of the best things you can say about it.

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.
