From a bottle. Looks great, smells a touch malty with a hint of biscuit, strong pine hop flavours with a lot of resin, delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice APA. Very hoppy citrus nose. A light reddish orange appearance. It actually reminds me alot of the Stargazer IPA, maybe a tad hoppier on the flavor. Very pleasant drinkable hoppiness. Like alot of other KS beers, this one could be fine for session drinking.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at La Jolla location Karl Strauss. Pours deep gold with a nearly copper core and white head. The aroma is big with a dose of pine, grassiness and hints of grapefruit hops. Smells great. The mouth feel seems thin throughout. The taste begins with fresh grapefruit juice hop flavor and bitterness followed by a mild pulse of pine hop bitterness and faint malty sweetness. The watery-ness of the beer is a bit distracting. Very enjoyable. Maybe I was expecting much less.

From tap at the brewpub in Carlsbad. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully diminished white head. Peachy and mild orange fruity hops aroma, quite inviting. Dry hoppy grapefruit flavour with a mild peachy flavour following. Starts solid bitter but goes lovely fruity into the finish. Nice one.
