12oz bottle from Southern Season. I’ve sought this for quite a while, so I’ll try to be reasonable. Pours orangish dark golden with fluffy head that laces well. Aroma is heavy citrus and a hint of pine hops. Taste is big fresh earthy punchy hops with tons of citrus flavor. Clean crisp finish. Dare I say it - this reminds me of Pliny. Nothing spectacular, just an excellent IPA lacking in flaws.
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Amazing beer. Good taste. Nice alcohol percentage.
This beer is available now in New Zealand which is excellent. I originally enjoyed it in California so I am very happy it is here. However it is quite expensive which is not the fault of the manufacturer rather the import costs. ANZUShophunter (495) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2017
From can in IPA glass. Pours orangish/amber with solid 1-finger off white head. There is quite a nice malt/hop balance from the aroma through to the palate with notes of apricot and mango as per the description. Quite tasty k92488 (491) - KVERNALAND, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2017

Aroma 8/10: Tropical fruit esters and piney hops
Appearance 4 /5: clear amber with lacy head. A very classic looking beer.
Palate 3 /5: moderate carbonation with full mouthfeel
Taste 8/10: extremely hoppy - piney, fruity, and fresh. Finishes bright without a lot of bitterness.
Overall 17/20: a classic west coast ipa. Sometimes you're just in the mood for something bitter and bright, and I'll always go back to this one.

Pours a clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, tropical fruit in general, flowers, melon and wood. Taste is malty and fruity. Lots of resinous piney bitterness. SvanteL (594) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2017
Guldgul, disig med stort fast skum som håller länge och sedan lämnar fina rester på glaset. I doften finns massor av läckra frukter, både söta tropiska och citrus, och även lite tallbarr. Smaken är lite marmeladsöt och mycket fruktig, en fin grapebeska avslutar och balanserar upp sötman. En komplex och mycket smakrik öl med lite oljig munkänsla, mycket bra! llkc (2606) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2017

Apperance orange, slightly hazy. Lots of hops in the aroma, tropical fruit. Fantastic balance between fruitiness, sweetnes and bitterness. This is one of the classical west coast ipa’s and still one of the very best. Brettsky06 (505) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Bright orange pour. Tropical fruit aromas, mostly mango. Taste is great the hops are crisp and juicy but yet bitter. Really good IPA
