Racking and dry hopping a Double IPA today. Next weekend I'm going to try this weeks recipe of the week for my wife and recipe adjustment #2 of my attempt at a Black IPA/Cascadian Ale. Has anyone brewed the passion fruit wild fire wheat? How much of the fruit comes through?

I've also had a few others that had a metallic taste and no nose to it.

You're not drinking directly from the can, are you?  Have to admit that I'm not a real can fan either but drinking that way'll guarantee a metallic taste.

Just out of curiosity, why don't you like your beer in a can? I can say i drank it both from glass and can and can't say it was better either way. From a consumer standpoint: why put it in a can if you have to bring a glass with you to enjoy it? IMHO even Guinness in a can has a metallic taste that it doesn't have from Draught or bottle. Maybe I'm just too much of a beer snob, but I think cans cheapen the beer and ruin the taste. I guess if I was to have a BMC beer, I at least know its gonna taste like ass and I know what I'm getting into. Craft brewers work so hard to bring flavor and personality to beer, why F it up with a can? I know the answer will be cost, but........

Still not sold on the cans. I had a Butternuts mixer 12 pack and couldn't drink 10 out of the 12 beers because they were horrible. The Pork Slap was the only drinkable out of it. I actually tossed the last 4 beers. I've also had a few others that had a metallic taste and no nose to it. Can anyone suggest a decent beer in a can thats available in the north east? I've seen Dale's but I've honestly been turned off. A bit extreme i know but thats just how i am.
