Old bottle, had to be, no way someone would sell this as a APA, flat lifeless beer malt bomb and paper.

peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
Tap @ Carlsbad brewpub. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is light bitterness, citrus and pine with a heavy sweet malt presence. Taste is a nice balance of pine and bitterness but theres a heavy sweet malt, caramel flavor in the background which muddies it up quickly. Not very clean.

Maris (1463) - 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 (1433) - 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.

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.

Pyobon (1377) - 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.

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.

GuideDogSaint (1314) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 9, 2014
355ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours orange/amber with a thin white head. Aroma is pine and not much else. Bitter finish.Would have it again.

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.
