UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 ReRate: the nose is full on dry heady. Much bigger hop character than before.
Translucent golden color with tropical fruits nose. Medium body decent tropical fruitiness, decent bitterness, clean IPA by its modest bitterness. But not trying to do anything special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle pours clear amber orange with a finger of head. Nose is piney resin, mango, citrus fruit, melon, grass. Taste is medium-high bitterness, lots of resiny pine, onion, orange, and grassy citrus. Finishes bitter with light malt sweetness, sticky pine, citrus, resin, grapefruit. Textbook west-coast style IPA that pulls it off very well.

Yellow fizzy. Some pine a bunch of carbonation. Bitter initially watery finish. Not a bad beer but not a great one either.

Pours yellow gold. Aroma is stone fruit, pine resin, floral, maybe some pepper/coriander spiciness? Taste is very bitter, lemon peel, grapefruit. Overall very nice and truly dry and bitter. I like just a tad more sweetness but this is well done and worth grabbing if fresh.
