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.

ALLOVATE (2650) - 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)

drpimento (2494) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pretty good beer overall, really. And I was surprised to get it on the other side of the planet, for me that is. Poured at a good temperature, with a thick, off-white foamy,semi-pemanent head, and lots of lace. Color is a clear, medium, honey amber. Aroma is at first honey caramel, then pine and citrus. Flavor’s like nose, fresh, tasty, (apparently it traveled well) and not too heavy in any area. Body/carbonation are excellent! Finish is like flavor and is super drinkable. I like it the more I drink it.

ilovedarkbeer (2470) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Nose is sweet olives, citrus, and grassblades. Taste is bitter, grassy, and slightly spicy. Soft mouthfeel. Meh.

Davros (2408) - 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.

joet (2408) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
This is a perfect little beer. At 5.3 it’s still abundantly flavorful and with thin but strong wave of dry hopping. Despite the abundant hop character it’s not "balanced" by sweetness in a way that mars the texture with sticky sugars. It goes down very easily and yet still makes a contribution to Thai food, fish tacos, burgers and salads. This is the best beer I’ve had all week. I’m not kidding.

SDalkoholic (2235) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a small layer of film for a head while the liquid was a sparkling golden honey color. My nose detects a decent amount of hops with scent of citrus and the signature Karl Strauss malts. The flavor is sort of bland and boring with only a minimal presence of bitter hops but with a bigger taste of sweetness attributed to the caramel like malts. Also, the malt gives off a bready flavor that balances out well with the floral hops that have a notice of honey or flowers.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 medium copper with almost no head. Floral hops aroma with spicy hop flavor balanced by the malt. A solid pale ale (re-rate / cask at San Diego downtown location) fluffy head. Nice hops aroma. Great cask mouthfeel.
