Notes: Canned Chameleon never stays the same for long. Each batch of this pale ale is brewed with a different hop variety and packaged in a newly-hued can. When the can's color changes, you can expect a deliciously original taste experience.

Straw yellow with some haziness. Heavy lacing. There’s a fingernail of creamy off white on top. The aroma is of lemon and lime. I’m tasting a bit of lemon and pine, the latter of which lingers after the fade. The mouth is light and easygoing.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled herbal and earthy with a touch of caramel maltiness. Odd earthy taste with toasted caramel.

12 oz can poured into nonic pint glass.

Hazy, juicy appearance with a creamy head of 1 finger. Lots of nice skirted lace up the sides of the glass.

Aroma is lovely. Lots and lots of pineapple, then orange juice, and hints of mango.

Flavor is likewise exquisite. Pineapple, OJ, mango, slight mint, more orange juice, and slight herb.

Feel is acidic and creamy at the same time. Lots of nice carbonation.

Overall, this is absolutely killer. On par with any of the TG offerings out there.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "CANNED ON" date 08/10/18.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, straw color with a few larger bits floating about, one-finger off-white head, excellent retention, heavy lacing on the glass, medium carbonation, does not get much better than this.

SMELL: bread, pineapple and an earthy note, understated to the nose.

TASTE: initially sweet citrus like pineapple and mango then bread and finishes with an earthy taste.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a great looking beer but otherwise it's just average, for $5.00 a six pack I would buy this again no problem, I also like the lower 4.5% ABV.

Canned Chameleon pours a hazyish bronze color, with a small, but long lasting lacing head. Sticky aroma. Flavor is sticky, and rather hoppy. Light malty base. Good body and feel. Overall, a strong and flavorful pale ale, great body, with some sticky flavors.

Poured from can into glass. Very hazy appears to be unfiltered. Nice head, disappears quickly but lacing continues down the glass. Has a piney, fresh aroma. Taste is similar to aroma - fresh citrus and refreshing with no major after taste. Nice refreshing beer. Was not expecting much but this is a good beer

Pours a hazy straw color with a thin, creamy, white head.
Wonderful smell of citrus hop and malt. Softer citrus smells of melon and orange. A little spice bite.
Taste of candied citrus and almost a fruity pebbles effect with the malt and candied hop combination. Some bitterness from the citrus hop. Spice and slight dankness creep in.
good bitterness for an APA. Great move by HyVee to get involved with Toppling Goliath!

Poured from 12-ounce can into an ultimate pint glass. Appearance leaves nothing to be desired. Hazy dark-yellow color, with a gleaming white and creamy two-finger head that left sheets of lacing as it settled to a thick cap. Good biscuity malt backbone, with lots of grapefruit, orange zest, tropical fruit, and pine. Nice bitterness (36 IBU), medium-light mouthfeel, and a moderately crisp and dry finish. Very tasty and refreshing.

Brewed exclusively for Hy-Vee Stores under the Warped Roots label.
