    Does IPA Taste Better in a Green Can?

    As opposed to silver or some other color?

    i guess i'll feed the troll. how would a color of a can make something taste better, it's still dark inside the can, right? maybe if it was a lined can i would say yes.

    I took this as a challenge to Heady-Topper. Some other DIPA in a green (instead of silver) can. Oh well, whatever.

    There is this thing called a "glass" which you pour beer into and then drink it from.

    Proper glass (chilled or otherwise) for the right beer would be better than a can given the choice imo.

    Are you referring to Sierra Nevada Torpedo? It comes in bottles and cans

    The bigger the can, the better it tastes by the finish, regardless of color. Clearly this is an attempt to better understand the choices we make based on color, motif and appearance of exterior of the can. It is a question of advertising, not of brewing nor of container preferences. If you are making your choice based on the container and the not the contents, you are doing it wrong. Perhaps we should pose this question to a color blind individual? Another option would be to purchase and consume blindfolded.

    Unsure, but it's well known that red cans are fastest!

    I drank a bit of the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale while in the US recently, I really enjoyed it, didnt try the Torpedo though, at 7.5% (I think) it was too much when I needed to drive back to the hotel

    A pair of cans generally makes an IPA taste better. Green ones should not be handled without proper protection.

    See, it comes in green cans, so you think it's hoppier:

    IPA in a can is no where near as good as it is in the bottle or on tap.

    Modus Hoperandi xcomes in a green can
    Upslope IPA comes in a silver and blue can.

    I like Upslope better, but Modus gets a better score on Beer Advocate.

    So, I don't know which color can works best.

    Beer, any beer, taste more like beer in a glass. If it's a good beer it will taste better, if it's a bad beer it will taste worse. Why? more than 70% of taste perception is the aroma of the item being tasted. You can't smell beer very well in a can.

    On second thought, the best tasting can is red:

    The Vortex IPA is about as good as beer "CAN" be. For improved aroma I pour it into a proper glass. Big fan of the can... although I appreciate nice legs as much as anyone.
