mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a golden clear yellow with a foamy white head. Medium carbonation, aromas of citrus and pine. Initial malt flavour balanced well with grapefruit bitterness. Finishing hops deliver a slight citrus peel flavour that is pleasant on the tongue. Very delicious

Marheb (3173) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Un corps moelleux et aérien qui fait changement des structures résineuses de la côte ouest. Agrumes et fruits tropicaux en harmonie, un peu de biscuit dans les malts, amertume docile, buvabilité suprême.

Good mass pale, not manufactured like some other big name pales. Good hop aroma, perfectly clear, nice malt light malt and hop balance. Good stuff.

Pyobon (1094) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Draught. Clear reddish copper with some small white head. Aroma is floral hops with tangy fruit (grapefruit or pineapple). Medium body and carbonation. Flavour starts sweet and fruity (pineapple or grapefruit again) and ends with a pleasant bitter finish. A well balanced pale ale.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Just over an inch of head. Color was caramel. Plenty of lacing on top with some film on the sides. The film stayed throughout the pour. Initial whiff was pine and grapefruit, followed by hops. Initial taste was a pleasant balance of hops, pine and grapefruit, followed by a small hint of bitterness. Even some lemon wafer cookies in there as well. Moderate on the carbonation. Flavor stayed consistent throughout. Pine and hops rule the day. I thought this beer was going to be good and it didn’t disappoint. Heavy on the hops, but smooth. Great combination.

No love for Karl Strauss? I thought this was a very nice brew. Pours clear dark golden copper color with a fluffy white two finger head. Floral aroma, with some light citrus coming in in the big nose. Flavor is a nice sweet citrus and light bitter pine on the finish. There is a definite malty biscuit backbone on this one with some caramel sweetness. Slick mouthfeel with high carbonation and some bite lingering on the palate. Very nice beer.

beer-yum (818) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 21, 2014
A delightful drink that ticks all the "Pale Ale" boxes. The enticing aroma is backed up with a perfectly balanced body and a restrained bitter finish.

Jimthechap (2057) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2014
As soon as I opened this beer, as well as the hiss, there was an immediate surge of resinous hops in my nostrils. Crikey. The body of the beer is orange amber with a puffy white head and another blast of herbal hoppiness when I poke my nose anywhere near the beer. It is strongly reminiscent of green spruce cones and redwood resin. Just glorious. The immediate impressions of the taste is that it isnt as massive as its aroma. It is gently carbonated and then those herbs come through with a slightly sweet stonefruit body but then they return with chlorophyll-like bitterness. I am not in the least disappointed. It’s a good exemplar of its style while retaining its individuality. It’s more herbal than other APAs and delightfully so.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Very pale amber color with a foamy head. Aroma is of carmelized malt and hops override it. A nice caramel flavor as well with a nip of hops. Totally drinkable...nothing incredible.
