(Draft: World Curry in San Diego, CA) Not too bad for a Karl Strauss beer, but I have pretty low expectations of them, so itís all relative I suppose; Moderately bitter, hoppy, dominant light citrus flavor; Pretty light on the malt, with a mild sweetness; Smells lightly sweet and malty with some hops and citrus; Very carbonated mouthfeel, light-to-medium body; Light golden color; Off-white head settles to a sheen, with lots of delicate, but dense lacing

From a tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

I had this on tap at Karl Strauss in Costa Mesa. Itís a nice golden pour with good balance between the hops & malt.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap @ Hamilton’s. Pretty much your standard pale. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Light nose of citrus hops and some malt. Finish was crisp and refreshing.

jrob21 (2935) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle in San Diego. Light, refreshing and a bit tame. Touch of caramel malt and decent body. Grassy herbal hops for flavor. Seems like this is made a little more for a wider audience as opposed to an earth shattering ipa experience. Drinkable but so many other options in SD.

hawthorne00 (2880) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2012
Clear amber with a white head that lasts and laces. Aroma of kumquat, grapefruit, a little peach, pine. Thinnish body, rather dull mouthfeel. Not much malt presence, some caramel. Sharpish citrus, dry bitter finish is a bit herbal too. Not enough to support the hops for me.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) Deep clear gold with white head. Aroma of pine, light fruit, light malt. Flavor doesnít match aroma, light malt body, grassy, light grain with a pine resin bitter. Mouth feel is light and watery. Overall, itís ok.

mjg74 (2853) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Bottle from Valley Farm. Aroma is quite bitter. Seems too have a strong pine scent. Dry and bitter. Pretty good hoppiness for an APA. Bitter throughout. Pretty easy drinking.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2012
A hazy golden/yellow colored beer, with a light beige head. The aroma of fruits like citrus, a little orange and hop. The taste is flat sweet with a little bitter. The aftertaste is vague sweet and a little bitter.

maekchu (2771) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Fresh yeasty nose with light grapefruit. Reddish copper color. Malty initial, light peaches, very smooth but slightly dirty hopping, final bitter notes do not linger very long. Medium body. Fairly typical APA. Well made. Would go well with some So Cal Mexican food.
