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

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.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, 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.

SphinxTX (2875) - 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 doesn’t match aroma, light malt body, grassy, light grain with a pine resin bitter. Mouth feel is light and watery. Overall, it’s ok.

ALLOVATE (2859) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2012
At just on cool and into a straightwall. There is pine resin, heavily caramelised fruit, rubber and a note of tart berries on the nose. No head; a brilliant amber it produced with fine effervescence. Doughy and a little soapy and underlyingly plastic on the palate. Quenching fruit comes through, as some toffee malts, burnt toast and otherwise bready notes. Piney finish but lapsed in bitterness. Easily quaffable and I don’t know why. Is it odd as this is just another APA!? (12fl.Oz, BB 30/04/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

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.

Davros (2716) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head. Very hoppy aroma, lots of pine, floral notes, citrus fruit and spicy hops. Some light clean malt underneath. Flavours follow along the same lines, with more floral and spicy notes along with a little fruit. Lovely clean malt underneath with just a hint of a cookie dough-like character. Carbonation is perhaps just a little high. Wonderfully refreshing and drinkable.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 21, 2014
On tap at their place in San Diego. Served really cold. Not much aroma. Light white head. Slight caramel and malt flavors. Flavor falls flat. Overall fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2005
On tap from the brewpub. Tasted during trip to California. Light amber colour with a fruity and malty aroma. Great taste very fresh and with a well balance of hops. Ends up with a nice aftertaste.
