Comming from California, Ive always kept a bunch of these tasties in my fridge for as along as I can remember, but I will try to review this as neutral as I can.
Despite its level of hoppiness, this beer is very balanced and drinkable. It is not only balanced, but extremely crisp and clean. The initial flavor comes off citrussy and pure and has an after taste of pine and hops that isn't overly bitter.
What a lot of people fail to mention is its affordability. I see this beer all over the USA in just about every store. I rarely see it sell for more than 8 dollars a 6-pack. To get a beer of this quality for that price just makes it an obvious go-to beer even for a college student with a tight budget.
The company is known for brewing a lot of different recipes and sharing all if it on the market. All their stuff is pretty decent, but this original has always been my favorite.

12 oz bottle into a tumbler. I really need to work on my glassware situation, but I feel like any glass is better than none. Last one from a 6 pack, enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a style I love, and pretty typical for it.
Pours a slightly hazy light amber/dark blonde with less than one finger of creamy off white head. Lacing isn't anything to write home about.
Sniffs Good. Subtle and hoppy, probably cascade. Mouthfeel is pretty light, and drinks smoothly. Would be a good beer in the summer, and is great right now late in the winter too. Tastes well balanced with plenty of hops. If you don't like hops this one is pretty approachable. (People should just drink what they like though.)
