Kurtos (152) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours an Amber colour, looks a little like a lager. Aroma is quite faint, can’t really smell anything, though what i can smell is a bit of apricot and pine. Taste. I can mainly taste apricot, with also some grapefruit, followed by a nice toffee and sweet bread malt backing. Overall. A good beer, easy drinking, although a little bland for my liking, i would enjoy this as a session beer and it is something i would rate very highly as an entry level apa.

madvike (3149) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is a blast of citrus--grapefruit with a little pine and onion. Clean malt body, crackery with nice grapefruit and floral hops. Thin and clean body. Awesome--just what I’m looking for in an APA.

Sevenlee (1669) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours a golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruits, caramel, citrus and some bread. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruit and caramel leading to a light to medium bitter finish. OK.

Old bottle, had to be, no way someone would sell this as a APA, flat lifeless beer malt bomb and paper.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a large off-white head. Not super hoppy as an IPA would be, but it does have a nose of spruce. Good body, nice flavor, but nothing that really stands out.

bytemesis (5584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with a small off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Flavor is about the same, light to medium sweet and light bitter. Fairly standard for the style. Medium body, somewhat creamy.

travita (4642) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, no head, goldenish color. The smell is malts, floral, hops, pie like, and ok. The taste is pine, hops, and malts.

marcus (8304) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013

davidm (2018) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Very tasty, and a with a great nose. Aromas of apricot, caramel, citrus, nuts. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

SDalkoholic (2301) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a small layer of film for a head while the liquid was a sparkling golden honey color. My nose detects a decent amount of hops with scent of citrus and the signature Karl Strauss malts. The flavor is sort of bland and boring with only a minimal presence of bitter hops but with a bigger taste of sweetness attributed to the caramel like malts. Also, the malt gives off a bready flavor that balances out well with the floral hops that have a notice of honey or flowers.
