If you are a frequent trader and have never engaged in a CANTrade, you ought to try it sometime! It is so much easier than those clunky, fragile bottles. I have a regular, ongoing CANTrade with the Mighty JenRay who only likes APAs, AIPAs and DIPAs, but will send me anything and everything that she CAN get. Here is a recent example.

From the CAN: "Quality Brewed[-]Community Strong[-]Texan Proud"; "There's pride, and then there's The Pride of Texas! Our Pale Ale is a tribute to our home state. Hoppy and bold, yet smooth and thirst quenching. Pride of Texas CANs are perfect for any outdoor gathering or activity where bottles are frowned upon. Best of all, if you're feelin' macho, you CAN crush 'em like a man!"; "Prost Y'All!"; "Go Texan."

I hear my boot camp company commander right now, addressing my bunkmate, Danny Davila from Corpus Christi, TX. Davila had just said, "I am proud to be from Texas, sir!" His response: "There ain't nothin' in or from Texas to be proud of, recruit! STFU! Any a you other asswipes from Texas?" Hands went up around the berthing compartment. "What part of Shitsville, I mean, Texas are you from?!?" he demanded of another fellow. "Fort Worth, sir." "Fuck her fer all she's Worth, you mean, you little douchebag?!?" It was a different era back then.

The Crack! revealed both a brimful craft CAN and a squirter. I got a spray across my knuckles and onto the nearby glass! I remember this one chick ... Regardless, this created two-plus fingers of dense, rocky, tawny head with good retention. Color was a hazy Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose was minty, piney, very hoppy and after a buncha non-hoppy beers these last couple of days, my mouth was watering. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was hoppy, sure, but not up to the billing of the aroma. They called it an APA and it was a decent example, but I was put in mind of the adage "All hat and no cattle." It evinced a grassy, minty bitterness which was okay, but it needed some citrusy hops to give it more of an Ooomph! Finish was semi-dry, not bitter or hoppy enough to be CANsidered truly dry. Crushable? Sure, but there are better examples of the style with which to fill the cooler. Sorry, Texas, but I have to side with my CC on this one.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy light amber with a thick white head.

Smell: Mild hops and malts.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Taste of bitter hops with a mild hint of citrus.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but I would not go out of my way to have one again.
