This is the best beer I've ever had out of a can.

Granted, not a lot of micros in cans in my neck of the woods (and I have a Surly Bender in the 'fridge that may soon kick Dale from top spot). But! many thanks to MeisterBurger in my virgin trade for this one.

Terrible packaging - looks like an adjunct lager at first glance. Never would have given it a second thought. But guess what? It's a very hoppy pale ale that verges on IPA territory. Darkish orange amber in the glass, good head with some lacing and retention. Strong citrus hops flavour with some floral notes and a nice bitter finish, all balanced by solid toffee malts. Reminds me of Lagunitas New Dogtown but slightly less citrusy. Active, oily mouthfeel, very refreshing and flavourful. I could drink a lot of these -- too bad they're not available in Alberta. Just what the doctor ordered!

-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.
