fletchfighters (1449) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2012
A-- Poured a darker orange amber color. Quite clear and some visible carbonation bubbles. Half finger of off white head. Nice lacing with this. Good sticky ring of lacing. Head holds up quite nice. S-- Pineapple, passion fruit, Lemon, orange, and lime. Good citrus nose. Some caramel backbone but this is very fruit forward. T-- Pine, orange and grapefruit in the taste. Turns to a more herbal variety. Citrus tones get lost in the taste. Not much of a backbone to this. M-- Slight amount of toffee in the feel but not enough to back up the hops. A sort of thin, soapy herbal character to this. A lot of hop bite to this but nothing to sooth it out. Dry, medicinal orange and grapefruit finish. Some resin in the mid palate. Lightly carbonated and medium feel. O-- More body to back this up. Lots of hops in this and could be very nice with a bigger backbone. Would buy again as a pretty well hopped APA.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2008
On-tap at the TapRoom. Pours slightly hazy amber with a thinnish white head, good lace. Smells light syrupy hoppy, slightly fruity sweet, earthy, slightly nutty, some malts. Tastes of some iced tea, nutty hops and some sweet cereal malts. Not that good but drinkable. Medium body, good carbonation.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2012
From a 355ml bottle on 12/9/2012. Pours a fairly clear dark golden with a tiny head. Has a delightful floral, fruity, perfumey aroma. This is a very flavoursome APA, with caramel and toasty malt, and sweet citrus fruit particularly prominent, with a touch of honey at the back. Better still, its quite hop forward, with a touch of IPA-like grapefruit bitterness present. The body is medium and the carbonation spot on. All up, a terrific APA with heaps of character.

floydian1 (1409) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 12, 2013
355ml bottle. Deep amber with a medium sized off white head that disappears quickly. A solid and sessionable APA with fruity piney malty aromas and flavours with a decent dry hop finish.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 5, 2002
I assume that this is the same as the Star of India Pale Ale that I had on draft in the San Diego airport. I think that its the same thing based on the descriptions on their web site, but they didnt respond to my email and its not really worth pursuing any more. A little bit too hoppy, to the point where it tastes almost minty. Amber color, weak head. I actually drank it 2 months ago and found the rating sheet the other day.

Pyobon (1359) - 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.

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is a blast of citrus--grapefruit with a little pine and onion. Clean malt body, crackery with nice grapefruit and floral hops. Thin and clean body. Awesome--just what Im looking for in an APA.

~Pours a reddish amber with diminishing white head. ~ Sour citrus hop scent with some sweetness. ~Grapefruit taste with some sweetness. ~Light feel, bitter finish. ~This is an enjoyable pale ale. A little light though.
