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.

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.

KeefOz (1786) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2012
Poured a translucent orangy amber colour with a thin bubble head that produced a few spots of lacing. Moderate carbonation. Citrus and hops plus some malt that gives a well balanced aroma. Taste has similar citrus to nose but less intense. Hops are pleasant and do not produce much bitterness. Thin body. Pleasant short bitter but smooth finish.

Bottle. Golden color, off-white head. Slightly buttery flavor with a lemony finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Nah.

tcane7 (1672) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
On draft at the SD airport. Poured a clear gold. Some hops on the nose, mostly piney, lightly roasted caramel malts. Tasted more of the same, not very hoppy.

BucannonXC5 (1612) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
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 didnt disappoint. Heavy on the hops, but smooth. Great combination.

Draft: Part of the July sampler. Nice, solid, clean, true to style, well crafted. Food Pairing: BBQ ribs.

October 5th, 2013 - The Pintail: hoppy, fresh and piney in the nose, and the flavor keeps up. Theres a nice depth of hops, a floral flourish, and a good, refreshing quality overall.

beer-yum (1555) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 21, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 Citrus aroma in an amber pour. A delightful drink that ticks all the pale ale boxes with a perfectly balanced body and a laid back, but sustained, bitter finish.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. Had on cask and on tap, both were really good. Aroma was killer, bright with hops. flavor was dry and drinkable and hoppy.
