Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Draft at Karl Strauss - Downtown San Diego location. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy white cap. Good aroma, lots of dank grapefruit and pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with further grapefruit, some mango and melon, a bit of sticky pine and orange rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Well balanced to finish with some sticky, resinous pine, light toasted bread, grapefruit, a bit of rindy bitterness. Quite solid, really. Has a nice hop kick without being over the top.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Tap at Steam Haus Gastropub in Corona, CA. Good lacing on a clear, sort of ugly amber. Good fruity hop nose with honeydew. Taste is clean, moderate soapy bitterness, moving to sweeter fruit juice like Sunny Delight. Clean melon fruit tastes. Clean slightly soapy body. Quite enjoyable.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Sample at the Sorrento Valley location. This brew is a deep amber color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Citrus hops aroma with a touch of malt. Medium body with grapefruit and hops flavors, along with some sweet malt. The finish is dry and hoppy with a lingering bitterness left over. Not bad overall.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Almost no head, cold-hazed pale amber beer. Nice inviting USA hops’ nose, fruity, citrussy, melon. Mandarine in the mouth, lightly spicy, some sweetish malts, ever so slighlty toasted. Slightly overcarbonated (or nitrogenated?) feel, too spritzy; light body, slick. Nice pale ale USA style.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. I have rated this beer before on tap, so these ratings will be merged soon, but I might as well re-rate it. Pours with a clear golden body and a small, white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, spicy and herbal. Taste is citrus, herbal and grassy. Light bubbles. Tastes quite fresh.
Earlier Rating: 7/25/2008 Total Score: 3.1
On tap at the Universal City Location. Pours with a small, white, long lasting head covering a clear yellow body. Aroma of honey and very mild hops (British hops of some sort). Dry, earthy taste, very malty. Dry mouthfeel.

Decent pale ale. Assertively hopped, nice dryness. A typical west-coast rendition of the style.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2008
On tap at La Jolla location Karl Strauss. Pours deep gold with a nearly copper core and white head. The aroma is big with a dose of pine, grassiness and hints of grapefruit hops. Smells great. The mouth feel seems thin throughout. The taste begins with fresh grapefruit juice hop flavor and bitterness followed by a mild pulse of pine hop bitterness and faint malty sweetness. The watery-ness of the beer is a bit distracting. Very enjoyable. Maybe I was expecting much less.
