I had this on-tap at the Westin in Maui, about 3 miles from the brewery.
Beer Facts: 6.8% ABV, 82 IBU's.
It begins with a smooth and malty flavor followed with a burst of hop. One improvement I would like to see would be making it less "thin bodied" but given where the majority of this stuff is consumed, it is just right.
This beer is not retired. It's back at 6.8% ABV, not at 6.3% ABV as is on recorded.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a cloudy, maize color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, earthy malt, slight fruit, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong hops, slight pine, slight hop oil, earthy malt, and slight fruit. Overall, good appearance and body, but too much earthy malt for my taste.
Serving type: can
