Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Fresh hops with some fruit in the nose. Deep amber color. Well balanced. Quite drinkable. Like the other Karl Strauss beers, I had this one on a fresh tap in its San Diego home.

Bozo_skeleton (932) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 21, 2016
Orangée, carbo moyenne, collet epais et persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes bien fruités, resineux et caramel. Corp plutot moyen, le pin domine bien mais c’est le fruit exotique qui reste sur la finale. Tres bonne biere de bbq...

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Pine hop flavours, finishing with some grapefruit and mild bitterness. You stay classy, San Diego.

From a bottle. Looks great, smells a touch malty with a hint of biscuit, strong pine hop flavours with a lot of resin, delicious.

guzgorog (655) - FRANCE - JAN 14, 2016
Blonde cuivrée, très fine mousse blanche. Nez agrume, citron, citron vert, agréable mais léger. Bouche agrumes (citron, pamplemousse). Amertume moyenne, corps léger. Une APA typique, sympa, mais sans aucune originalité !

harrisoni (16841) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear amber colour lasting beige head. Quite a tasty APA, fresh enough. Some danky grapefruit, some bitterness. I rather liked it. Good APA.

tricksta_p (3148) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is piney, pale malt, biscuits, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, leafs, hops. Flavour is light sweet and just about medium bitter. Body is medium. Rather mild malty piney APA, but enjoyable.

ciocanelu (997) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 6, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is somehow faint, some malts and earthy hops. Taste is also pretty simple. Slightly hoppy, slightly malty, not too bitter. Medium body with quite low carbonation. Easy drinking but nothing more.

tiong (6150) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ Karl Strauss La Jolla, San Diego, CA

Pours dark copper orange with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee and pine. Taste is grainy malty, caramely and earthy. Finish is malty and caramely with some grassy notes. Decent.
