From tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light caramelish and hoppy. Solid hops fruity flavoured, light heral to grassy touch and pinewood to grapefruity flavoured with a light leathery touch. Ends smooth bitter and fresh hoppy.

Draft in Carlsbad. A copper colored beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma has strong notes of spicy hops, lending it notes of grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops, lending it notes of spices, hay, and some grapefruit, leading to a rather bitter finish. omhper (25955) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2006
Draught at O’Brien’s, San Diego. Clear dark amber, small head.Roasty malt aroma. Dryish with clean mouthfeel. Some grapefruity hops covered in dust. Bitter, salty finish. A somewhat harsh pale ale. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2009
On tap. Pours a clear pale amber with an off-white head. Some piney hoppiness in the nose. Medium body, caramel and fruit before a fairly hoppy finish. 060709 brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
A: The pour is a dark golden/light amber color with medium white head.
S: The nose starts off with bready malts and earthy, floral hops. And that’s also just about where it stops. Pretty light aroma, overall.
T: A lot of similarities to the nose as I take the first sip. A moderate bitterness with an earthy hoppiness. The malts are bready and slightly sweet, but still not a very powerful flavor.
M: The body is medium, even for what is a pretty light beer, with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Fairly light and simple, but definitely easy to drink. Not something I’d necessarily come back to, though.

"a good pale...fresh, aromatic and bitter...nothing spectacular, but it does everything a classic pale ale should. i’d enjoy a pint any day. maybe a little hoppier than average?"

On tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Clear, deep orange amber. Low aroma of toffee and citrus. Soft malts take a backseat to the very bitter grapefruit rind hops. In every way an IPA except for the ABV. Very good! GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Draft at Pizza Port Carlsbad Jan 2016. Clear golden color with okay foam. Nose is wet dog and fresh lemon. Taste is denser, nutty, heavy, wickedly bitter. Dry end with aggressive grapefruit rind. Long, bitter finish. A bit too aggressive and nutty/heavy for me. blipp (9906) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Crisp and fresh fruity hops, some lighter dank piney notes, mild-moderate bitterness, and low sweetness. Fresh, juicy, and damn delicious. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Draft with Linh at Pizza Port. Pours a clear amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is slight hops. Mouthfeel is light and thin with mild hop notes.
