22oz bomber poured into a snifter. My first offering from Drake's, and I've heard good things.
A- Light and clear orange color with a finger's worth of head that fades fairly quickly, leaving alot of stickiness along the sides of the glass.
S- The name does not lie; as soon as I popped the cap, the hop aroma hit me. Very citrusey in the aroma, with orange, mango, and grapefruit shining through. I also get some overall floral notes as well. Great smelling beer.
T- The taste lives up to the smell also. Initially I get some piney resin hop bitterness, then a slight hint of a malty backbone. The citrus most noted in the smell is not nearly as apparent in the taste.
M- Light bodied, easy drinker, nice carbonation. A very hoppy yet balanced beer. The alcohol is not noted.
This is a great beer, classic West-Coast. Too bad Drake's doesn't distribute here in Illinois.

22 oz. bomber poured into Golden Road tulip glass. Bottled on 7/1/14, drank on 7/25/14.
A: A very appealing gold -- fairly opaque, and with a decent-sized foam head that lingers.
S: Intoxicating aroma that fills the glass. Tropical fruits, some mild sugar and pine are all abundantly present.
T: Sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Those tropical fruit tones and sugary malts are at the forefront, with the pine coming in on the backend.
M: Starts off on the medium side, but gets a bit heavier as it warms. Some pretty mild carbonation and a non-resiny finish still make these very pleasant.
O: This beer is everything it's supposed to be; some amazing aromas and a hop profile that also delivers some great tastes, too. It's a very good IPA for summer -- finding a great balance between flavor and body, while not possessing alcohol content that's going to make it difficult to drink in the sun.
