Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
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.

Draught @ El Cajon Brewing. Reddish amber with a bubbly off-white head. Piney, hoppy nose with floral citrus. Smooth, medium high carbonation.

brinehart (212) - Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
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.

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.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
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.

o_Merlin_o (191) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a gorgeous light brown color, with a sparse but lasting bright white lacy head. Awesome hops aroma, with some sort of herb in there as well. Nice taste but it fades really quickly. Minimal palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2014
Faultless APA. Pours deep amber with good clarity and medium, slightly off-white head. Great lacing. Upfront pine and caramel aromas, with interesting fruit notes coming through. Grapefruit is present, but also are some sweet tropical fruits. Body is medium-thin. While not particularly memorable, the taste is balanced and quite refreshing. An appropriate malt backing supports a medium bitterness that provides a biting finish, but not as exhaustive as an IPA.
