Damn Gina, i think this is my favorite IPA. I drink it regularly but just recently having it again and though i'd review it.
A tangerine honey color slightly, slightly turbid, fills my glass with a good finger of ivory colored foamy lacing. The aromas are quite crisp and very aromatic with a wall of orange blossoms and fragrant citrus... as if someone just peeled a pink grapefruit and sprinkled it all around.
The flavors hit the classic IPA on the money... actually i should say, this IPA sets the standard. True mountain pine and ripe citrus peels mingle like they're at happy hour. A true melding of delicious flavor with light toast bread mixed in. As you quaff this treat, you know you are drinking an IPA and one that isnt subtle nor pretends to be anything else. Actually, the taste screams West Coast IPA.
Very nicely carbonated and rather clean and oh so easy to drink. My fridge will always have several bottles of this!!! Yours should too!
Serving type: on-tap

Absolute perfect example of an America IPA. Beautiful aromatics and flavors of tropical fruit followed by bright citrus and piney bitterness. Great lacing in a pint glass. It finishes with a welcome bitterness that lingers pleasantly on the palate. This is the IPA that most IPA's want to be when they grow up.
