bytemesis (3495) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013

marcus (6769) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013

davidm (1938) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012

SDalkoholic (2179) - 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.

tcane7 (1668) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
On draft at the SD airport. Poured a clear gold. Some hops on the nose, mostly piney, lightly roasted caramel malts. Tasted more of the same, not very hoppy.

Rosslew (252) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2012
Very strong aroma from bottle. Pours a dark orange with good head. Very much has citrus flavours associated with US pale ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DonTom (8) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2012 does not count
Wow, massive piney hops. This beer is a flavour explosion. I really enjoyed this and am keen to give it another try. Not sure I could drink a heap of these at any one time, but would really enjoy a couple every now and then. Tasty beer

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head. Very hoppy aroma, lots of pine, floral notes, citrus fruit and spicy hops. Some light clean malt underneath. Flavours follow along the same lines, with more floral and spicy notes along with a little fruit. Lovely clean malt underneath with just a hint of a cookie dough-like character. Carbonation is perhaps just a little high. Wonderfully refreshing and drinkable.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle, shared with my wife over lunch at the San Diego Zoo. I love that craft beer has become so relevent that I can buy it at a zoo cafeteria. Burnt orange colour, decent off-white head. Piney and fruity hops are backed by lightly toasty caramel malts. Nice bitterness. It was 93 degrees today, and this really hit the spot.
