A - Nice, clean, yellowish orange... good head and retention.
S - All Citra hops here. I've homebrewed with Citra and I'm partial to it -- great hop variety.
T - Wonderfully hoppy qualities with a very light body. Big citrus dominates, and the finish is clean and dry.
M - Nice carbonation, good mouthfeel.
D - Very drinkable, though the front-end hop assault may lead you to think otherwise... but it lightens up beautifully on the backend.
Reminds me quite a bit of Russian River's Happy Hops, and some other super-hopped blonde/pale hybrids. We need more lighter beers with big hops like this one. Excellent beer.
update: had it on cask at Toronado SD... like most hoppy beers, it loses something on the cask. Find it on tap.

I was poured this both on DRAFT and on CASK in a standard pint glass. I preferred the cask version. Anyway...
Looks nice and smells like a typical APA, but the taste was a little too bitter for me. Still, it exhibited nice qualities in smell and taste. Low ABV means they could have really took advantage of showcasing the taste - but I feel it's lacking a bit.
Not sure I'd order this again, as I found it "average." Actually, I was hoping it would be closer to Kern River's "Citra," but it fell flat.
