maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Fresh yeasty nose with light grapefruit. Reddish copper color. Malty initial, light peaches, very smooth but slightly dirty hopping, final bitter notes do not linger very long. Medium body. Fairly typical APA. Well made. Would go well with some So Cal Mexican food.

Muggus69 (1272) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
12fl Oz BB 01/2015 Golden body, slight haze, holds a firm white head. Good aroma with light caramel & grainy malts combining with spicy, wood hops with notes of stonefruit & citrus peel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Offers plenty of resiny woody & citrusy hops on the body, bolstered by a solid dose of toasty cereally pale malt goodness. Finishes with a firm but clean bitterness, very refreshing. Nice APA, plenty to like.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2002
I also assume that this is the "Star of India Pale Ale". Orange color, citrusy scent. Was hoppy with a bit of citrus taste. Mild for an IPA, but good. My favorite of their beers.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Fresh hops with some fruit in the nose. Deep amber color. Well balanced. Quite drinkable. Like the other Karl Strauss beers, I had this one on a fresh tap in its San Diego home.

JohnnyJ (4551) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Tap at PP Carlsbad. Light amber pour, small off-white head. Grassy citrus hops in the aroma, nice and fresh smelling, with some malt. Flavor has more malt profile, with bread and grain. Overall very light, easy to drink, but much like water. Meh.

From a tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.
