One of my all-time favorites! Pours a clear pale gold, thick vibrant white head (solid retention) which coats the glass on the way down. Huge bouquet of citrus, pineapple, and mango. Tastes of hoppy citrus zest with a thin malt layer at the end. Light, crisp, and goes down really smooth. Easy drinking classic from one of the West Coast IPA pioneers. If you see it somewhere you should definitely get one... or five! Oh yeah, almost forgot the best part... They're only $1.79 a pint!!!! The beer gods are smiling!

A - 16 oz can. Pours clear, light apricot. Near white, thick head. Slow to leave. Lots of cling.

S - Malt takes back seat to bitter, aromatic hop profile.

T - Bam. Love this one. Big malt, refreshing, nice aggressive hops to balance it out. Big beer, so a little heat, but not out of balance.

M - Medium body, good carb and balance, finishes on the bitter side, maybe a bit much.

D - If a cleaner finish, would be higher points. As it is, very very nice.
