3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden clear yellow with a foamy white head. Medium carbonation, aromas of citrus and pine. Initial malt flavour balanced well with grapefruit bitterness. Finishing hops deliver a slight citrus peel flavour that is pleasant on the tongue. Very delicious

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Expected medium yellow/amber color, decent carbonation and head retention. Aroma positively reeks of dishsoap with a strange overtone of underarm deodorant. Soapy glass, perhaps? Flavor likewise dominated by soap. Pine, citrus hop flavor and a tidbit of malt appear before the lingering, soapy finish. Dreadful.

Clear bronze-gold with lasting off-white head. Light on the nose. Citrus and tropical hops, but not bright and fresh. Somewhat dank and muted. Big flavor though. Good balance. Somewhere between PA and IPA.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler on tap at the brew pub in down town San Diego. Caramelly aroma. Flavor of caramel malt yielded to grapefruity hop bitterness. Nice complexity to this unique pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with Dad. Pours golden orange with a foamy off-white head, a good looking APA. Some nice peach and orange, floral notes in the nose but a lot of caramel malt. Taste is medium sweet, nice peach and citrus, but again a lot of caramel malt. Quite an old bottle will try it again fresh to get the full potential.
