This one is easy to forget about because it's so easy to get and reasonably priced. I can't think of any other IPA out there that is as easy to get, as cheap and also as consistantly great! This is a great IPA from California that I can get in a random grocery store in upstate NY for 16 dollars a twelve pack. 'nuff said.

Poured from bottle into chalice.
Pours a light copper...modest head of various size bubbles.
Aroma of grassy hops, slight sweet malt and melon.
Significant carbonation and moderately bold mouthfeel.
Flavors of grassy hops, slight malt sweetness, slightly mouth puckering bitterness, oak, cream of tartar. While this description does not sound like a delicious IPA, it is in fact very tasty, slightly challenging, and one of my regular house brews. It's not wimpy, overly off with melon or chalk bitterness, but also not as piney or grapefruit as many (flavors I like). Still, for the price and regular availability, this is a solid and satisfying brew.
