A delightful drink that ticks all the "Pale Ale" boxes. The enticing aroma is backed up with a perfectly balanced body and a restrained bitter finish.

12 oz bottle from a "summer beers" gift pack someone gave me. Surprisingly good. It’s probably cliche, but this reminded me a lot of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Quaffable, with a fair amount of spicy hops and a good caramel backbone. The kind of beer you could easily throw back 6-7 in your backyard playing horseshoes or somethin’. Only downside was I picked up a little bit of a metallic flavor that was a minor distraction.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).

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.
