On tap at Karl Strauss Carlsbad. Brown amber color. Lots of hop bitterness. Nice clean grassy hoppy aroma. Very nuce. Karl Strauss keeps getting better and better. I think several of the staff are getting heavier into brewing, attending QUAFF, etc, which is helping the beer quality.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2006
On draft at Columbia Street brewpub. Pours a clear, deep amber color with a thin off-white head that leaves some spotty lace. Aroma is dominated by hops with some toasty malts evident as well. Flavor is very briefly of toasty malts, then become all about the hops, citrus, grapefruit and pine notes abound, with a slight spiciness in the finish - hoppy indeed and somewhat unbalanced to this beer lover. Medium body and cripsy carbonation. Overall this is a just above average brewpub beer.

Pours a golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruits, caramel, citrus and some bread. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruit and caramel leading to a light to medium bitter finish. OK.

MetalNHopHead (1841) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 13, 2016
In the West Coast, the line between Pale Ale and India Pale Ale is getting more blurred all the time. At 5.3% ABV and 47 IBUs, Pintail is refreshing in that it fits exactly where it should. While it IS hop-forward, theres a balance that really works here. The tropical, herbaceous hops are partially offset by the honey, biscuit malt characteristics. The bright, crisp hop notes hit right where you want them: at the tip of the tongue and the back of the mouth. Right in between is a rich, malty middle. It definitely did right by my palate.

skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
pours a reddish amber with a small off white head with some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet bready malts, and some caramel. Taste is of citrus, pine resin, tropical fruits, bready sweet malts, and some caramel malts. has a medium body wit nice carbonation, a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, semi bitter, yet refreshing finish. overall, a very drinkable, well balaced, and pretty decent tasting pale.

Damn, forgot to enter this...12oz. bottle

Appearance: Pours a clear amber orange with a retaining thin cap of head.

Aroma: A nice hoppy aroma featuring herbal and citrus notes.

Taste: Bitterness, citrus, and a bite of salty caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly juicy and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A very solid APA that I think most would enjoy. It isnt as crisp as most California Pale Ales, but the malt backbone will make this much more approachable to folks who dont care for a Sierra Nevada type of APA.
