jrob21 (3333) - 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 (3308) - 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.

maekchu (3240) - 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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 The only reason I drink this was Karl had a lock on all the beers at Street Scene. I know these guys dont give a crap about their beer and it shows. Too bad.

madvike (3172) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is a blast of citrus--grapefruit with a little pine and onion. Clean malt body, crackery with nice grapefruit and floral hops. Thin and clean body. Awesome--just what I’m looking for in an APA.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
(Draft: World Curry in San Diego, CA) Not too bad for a Karl Strauss beer, but I have pretty low expectations of them, so it’s 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

jeremytoni (3029) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2010
From a tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 5, 2012
I had this on tap at Karl Strauss in Costa Mesa. It’s a nice golden pour with good balance between the hops & malt.

tricksta_p (2991) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is piney, pale malt, biscuits, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, leafs, hops. Flavour is light sweet and just about medium bitter. Body is medium. Rather mild malty piney APA, but enjoyable.
