BucannonXC5 (796) - 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 didn’t disappoint. Heavy on the hops, but smooth. Great combination.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 6, 2003
On Tap at Karl Strauss restaurant in Carlsbad, named ’Star of India Pale Ale’ so this may not be correct. Nice color , not much head as delivered, mild nose. Was initially a bit bitter but got better as the glass warmed a bit. A good solid drinkable IPA worth ordering (food is real good there too).

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAY 8, 2009
On tap at KS Sorrento. Pale gold color. Kinda thin body. Sweet with a bit of hop bitterness. Pretty weak unsatisfying finish. Wouldn’t try again.

A rather ordinary yet very drinkable pale ale. Was hoping to sample more of this brewers art but a power outage cut it short.

Karol (592) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 27, 2014
Tapped at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Aroma was malty in the back and I sensed a lot of spices and some good hops. Golden to copper color. Taste was a quite good balance of malt and bitter hops with a malty and bitter finish. Refreshing. A tasty beer.

Bottle. Pours orange amber with small off white head and some lace. Aromas of pine, citrus, grain and light toffee. A bit thin, light-medium body, medium-high carbonation. A of bit dish soap with a lingering grain, light malt and hop bitterness on the finish.

 A nice sweet pale ale. Appears light amber and hazy. Taste is cool refreshing sweet and fruity. Aroma was similar with some toffee malt coming through.

Brenhophead (532) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2012
330mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head and a piney/citrus aroma with hints of sweet toffee. Mild bitterness which fits the beer very well and also piney notes in the flavour mixed with the toffee backing. Nice beer but by no means does it stand out from the crowd.
