Gold with amazing clarity, quickly builds a rocky two finger head of stark white. Retention is ridiculously high, the cap of foam doesn't want to leave the top layer of liquid resulting in slight flecks of lacing.
Aroma is rather muted personafied by floral grasses and bright citrus. Honey bread malt provides a solid foundation. Hay, straw, wild flowers, lemon peel and pink grapefruit hops.
Malt is pale and thin, toasted white bread with a lick of cookie dough. Hops are very bright, floral herbs and yellow citrus, grapefruit pith and lemongrass at the epicenter with some pine, chives and red berry. Alcohol is has a steely edge when matched with the medium high bitterness and soapy drying in the finish.
Medium bodied and judging by the attractive head formation the carbonation is boisterous. Finish is metallic and very bitter but also nicely drying. Moderate alcohol.
Thrillseeker uses classic hops to bring a bright grassy/citrus profile to life with high alpha acids and a scrubbing bone dry finish. Lacks the aroma and touch/feel to raise it into the next level of IPAs.

Copper color. Medium-sized head with moderately large bubbles. In the aroma, caramel prominent, grapefruit, pineapple. Bitterness medium. Body medium. Carbonation medium. Pretty tasty, though I wish there was less caramel flavor, allowing the hops to come through more.

Went down to the Seal Beach location this afternoon, unfortunately all of their bottles sold out the day of the release! A nice bartender recommended that I try Whole Foods, and I was able to find it there (albeit for a $1 more at $8.99).
If there's a better brewery in the greater LA/OC area, I don't believe you. I live in the valley, and am not able to travel to the actual locations very much, but have tried Thrillseeker, Melrose, and Amalgamator since they began bottling them. All are top notch IPAs.
Beautiful, clear golden color. Great lacing. Awesome nose. Slightly sweet finish to balance the hops. Excellent beer. The only thing I can knock off really is the price, which is slightly high. I wish their beers were more readily available in Los Angeles.
