Wow that is great news about easy off.
I will have to give easy off a try. I did find a guy who will sand blast the liner off for around $50 depending on what kind of component he needs to clean the drum with. The big thing was he was willing to come by and pick it up. Which would save me a lot of time.
I didn't get home in time to take a picture but it is the same orange color that GasPipe1 drum has. They are probably from the same batch.
