4/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours a light golden orange, thin white head retained across the top, minimal carbonation.
Smells of mild piney resins, floral hop character, small hints of orange and honey.
Taste is very mild pine, delicate floral hop bitterness, mild grassy character, lingering spicey bitterness.
Mouthfeel is mildly prickly, has a slight warming in the aftertaste from the ABV, light medium body, and finishes semi-dry.
This beer is very drinkable but I found it to be a little to wimpy for what I prefer in a West Coast IPA. It's mildly aromatic and the taste is delicate, definitely a big surprise. However, this would be an IPA that would appeal to more mainstream beer drinkers. Worth checking out.
Updated review: Can
A - Pours a medium honey orange, clear, nice amount of carbonation, and a rocky head that gradually dies down to a thin layer across the top of the glass.
S - Crackery malt, grapefruit, citrus fruit, a little bit of pine apple, and a little bit of pine. 'Definitely smells good and the aroma isn't aggressive, just a moderate amount of IPA aroma goodness.
T - Pretty close to what I was getting in the nose. The malt has a graham cracker flavor personality that's tasted immediately up front and on the tip of the tongue. Hop bitterness stays even throughout and settles on the side of the tongue with assertive lingering bitterness after the sip - my kind of IPA. The hops work well together and don't overpower the other: piney grapefruit resin and citrus.
M - Medium bodied, carbonation is crisp, finishes semi-dry, and coats the mouth with a mildly wet grapefruit bitterness that lingers for quite awhile. I'm always impressed with this beer because the 7% is so well hidden.
D - Very drinkable.
For some reason, I enjoyed this more from a can as opposed to the tap, that's unusual for my track record.

Yellow gold color. Upside-down bubble rain. Fat sticky off-white head. Gives good lacing.
Loud citric rind hoppiness, grapefruit, pale ale malt, sourdough yeast, pine, and elderflower. Great IPA representation. Reminds me of Lagunitas IPA.
Follows the nose with wild citrus, vine flowers, peppermint leaf, pine, spicy hop, biscuit bread malt with spare toast, grapefruit, and orange rind. Yeast is evident with that sourdough flavor. A little dank, very fresh draft pour.
Nice and wet with a swishy feel. Optimal for drinking. Excitable on the palate.
A damn good IPA. I forgot how much I like this.

12oz canned on 1/27/14, poured into an IPA glass.
A - Light gold, 1 inch head with solid lacing.
S - Light tropical fruit with a touch of honey.
T - Very balanced hop profile. Mild pine, grassy and fruit with a breakfast cereal backbone. Mild bitterness.
M - Milky, moderate body with excellent carbonation.
O - Overall a solid IPA, but nothing that would make me revisit over other options available on the shelf.

Thanks to Marco_Gtz for this one.
Poured from a 12oz can, canned on 12-09-13.
A fairly clear, light gold body, spotted lacing with always a good thick foam. Aroma is zesty oranges and pears. Flavor is more malt heavy with some cedar bitterness. Ok but pales in comparison to its CA counterparts.
