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.

Poured from a 1 pint 8 oz. can into a Blue Hills pint glass.
The color is an orange/amber with a finger or two of foamy white head that does stay for a short time leaving some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is fruity with some slight citrus aroma mixed with a little sweet pine in the nose. There is a nice freshness here that has a promising hoppy aroma without giving too much away.
The taste is slightly hoppy at first giving off just enough of a bitter pine presence before allowing the sweet malt flavor that really gives this beer it’s backbone. A bit of a bready flavor that balances well with bitterness that comes back toward the end with more pine and touches of tangerine and a slight twang of earthy flavor that is bitter and blunt at the same time.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkable feel Like a more good pale ales this beer is a good standard beer to have, well balanced with the right amount of hops to gives a hit of bitterness over the malt flavor but nothing that will stick out and disturb the harmony of this beer.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #63 (Apr 2012):
LOOK: Pale amber, thick suds
SMELL: Orange zest, mild caramel, leafy hops, bready, dried grass, faint peppercorn, kumquats
TASTE: Smooth, assertive hop bitterness, citric rind, toasted grain, dusty hay, yeast, faint esters, pear juice, faint mint, crackers; dry, hoppy finish
A solid go at the crowded APA style, and a few steps ahead of the middle of the pack. The 24-ounce can format sets its self apart from all other canned craft beers we know of. A good quaff—pull the big mugs out for this one.
