Draught in Brewpub: This one poured a clear, golden color. It had a bit of a frothy white head. Some lacing. It has a lighter aroma of piney hops, with possible some floral notes. The taste is very good A mild pine hop bite, with a fairly decent malt body. Clean and easy drinking.

24oz can that was canned on Jun 24 2013 according to the case. Pours a brownish dark amber color with an inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is somewhat floral with some sweet malts, lemon zest, and bread. The taste is some malts and sweet bread with floral hops. Lemon zest and some dry bitterness towards the end. Hints of pine as well but this one is mainly a floral pale ale. Dry mouthfeel. I have to admit its pretty cool drinking a beer out of a 'Zona-esk can. Overall, decent Pale ale that nicely balances the floral hops and malts.

It's tough to really rate this beer because I think I got an old can. It would be nice if they would date their cans so I can make sure I'm not getting another bad one. It tasted fairly flat, lacking carbonation. Flavors was muted, unfortunately. Their imperial stout might be my favorite all time.

24 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber body with two fingers of fluffy white foam. Aroma is heavy on the English hop varietals, floral and sweet caramel malts. Taste is similar with some pine and floral hops and a large caramel malt backbone. Lightly sweet and bitter. Mouth feel is light to medium and easy drinking, which is great given the large size of the can. Probably less of an APA and more of an English style IPA. Overall this was pretty decent.
