joet (2517) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
This is a perfect little beer. At 5.3 it’s still abundantly flavorful and with thin but strong wave of dry hopping. Despite the abundant hop character it’s not "balanced" by sweetness in a way that mars the texture with sticky sugars. It goes down very easily and yet still makes a contribution to Thai food, fish tacos, burgers and salads. This is the best beer I’ve had all week. I’m not kidding.

StefanSD (2336) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2010
12 oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is soft with sweet malts and mild hops. The flavor is biter and sweet with pine resins and caramel malts working in a nice balance. The palate was just a bit light, and the carbonation was lively. Finishes short and clean. Overall: A good everyday ale.

SDalkoholic (2331) - 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.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 medium copper with almost no head. Floral hops aroma with spicy hop flavor balanced by the malt. A solid pale ale (re-rate / cask at San Diego downtown location) fluffy head. Nice hops aroma. Great cask mouthfeel.

[Bottle] Golden amber hue, modest head formation. Citrussy hop, mild caramel aroma. Citrussy lemon and grapefruit from start to finish, malt is minimal making for a rather light body. Decent light, hoppy pale ale.
