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.

Wittales (726) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Appearance was orangish gold with creamy lasting white 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are soft citrus, earthery hops then caramel sweet malts, no alcohol. Taste are grapefruit, lemon, soft earthery spicy hops upfront. Then soft sweet malt middle supports the smooth citrusy, light spice and wood smooth backend. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then a balanced lasting slightly drying finish. Overall an solid APA, smooth pale.

Karol (719) - 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.

varanid99 (702) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2013
Orange pour with a thin off white head. Grapefruit, floral, malt aroma. Taste is caramel, citrus, cantaloupe. Finishes slightly bitter.

Jado (673) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2012
There’s not a lot on the nose, but it looks good - deep clear amber with a lasting white head and lively carbonation. Taste is driven by some nice hops flavours with citrus, pine and herbal tones coming through. Maybe a bit thinner than other West Coast APAs, but it’s refreshing and sessionable. Will be back for more.

Brenhophead (656) - 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.
