mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 30, 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.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Draft at Karl Strauss - Downtown San Diego location. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy white cap. Good aroma, lots of dank grapefruit and pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with further grapefruit, some mango and melon, a bit of sticky pine and orange rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Well balanced to finish with some sticky, resinous pine, light toasted bread, grapefruit, a bit of rindy bitterness. Quite solid, really. Has a nice hop kick without being over the top.

No love for Karl Strauss? I thought this was a very nice brew. Pours clear dark golden copper color with a fluffy white two finger head. Floral aroma, with some light citrus coming in in the big nose. Flavor is a nice sweet citrus and light bitter pine on the finish. There is a definite malty biscuit backbone on this one with some caramel sweetness. Slick mouthfeel with high carbonation and some bite lingering on the palate. Very nice beer.

Beautiful aroma of fruit, quite darkish colour with a minimal head. Nice flavoursome taste with a bitter finish. Drank from tall glass from 355 ml bottles from Dan Murphys Highbury.

Niksko (315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2013
330ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden with a finger of fine off white head.
Nose is lovely and fruity. Nose is dominated by mandarin and toffee, with light pineapple, orange and a hint of passionfruit. Theres a slightly sweet, earthy character too.
Flavour is pretty unusual for an American Pale Ale. The classic elements of the pine and citrus flavours are there, along with a bit of bitterness. However there’s also a fairly forward caramel and toffee component (like a scotch ale), as well as a little spiciness from the Motueka and a very subtle biscuit note on the finish.
Body is medium, and the beer lingers after you’ve swallowed.
Pretty interesting. Definitely not a traditional American Pale.

floydian1 (905) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 12, 2013
355ml bottle. Deep amber with a medium sized off white head that disappears quickly. A solid and sessionable APA with fruity piney malty aromas and flavours with a decent dry hop finish.
