(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. Ober (2811) - 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. Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014

Golden body, slight haze, holds a firm white head.
Good aroma with light caramel & grainy malts combining with spicy, wood hops with notes of stonefruit & citrus peel.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.
Offers plenty of resiny woody & citrusy hops on the body, bolstered by a solid dose of toasty cereally pale malt goodness. Finishes with a firm but clean bitterness, very refreshing.
Nice APA, plenty to like. ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2010

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.

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. joet (2675) - Wilsonville, Oregon, 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.

12 oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is soft with sweet malts and mild hops. The flavor is biter and sweet with pine resins and caramel malts working in a nice balance. The palate was just a bit light, and the carbonation was lively. Finishes short and clean. Overall: A good everyday ale. SDalkoholic (2444) - 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.
