Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.

After drinking this beer for more than 10 years, I have finally come around to review this beer.

A - Delicious golden/orange body. White, fine head with dense sticky head.
S - Sweet citrus and pine.
T - Balanced sweet citrus, pine, hops, and goodness.
M - Just the right amount of carbonation and body.
O - Excellence

This is a classic West Coast IPA which many IPAs were fashioned after it was created. Hoppy, bright, and full of sunshine. San Diego style.
