2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I assume that this is the same as the íStar of India Pale Aleí that I had on draft in the San Diego airport. I think that itís the same thing based on the descriptions on their web site, but they didnít respond to my email and itís not really worth pursuing any more. A little bit too hoppy, to the point where it tastes almost minty. Amber color, weak head. I actually drank it 2 months ago and found the rating sheet the other day.

Very little noticable hops, a weak pale ale, even for an American Style. Malty, wheaty, and somewhat spicy.

On draft at the SD airport. Poured a clear gold. Some hops on the nose, mostly piney, lightly roasted caramel malts. Tasted more of the same, not very hoppy.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head, Light toffee sweet malts, with earthy hops, and almost spicy grassy notes. Relatively balanced. Not bad.

Old bottle, had to be, no way someone would sell this as a APA, flat lifeless beer malt bomb and paper.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 The only reason I drink this was Karl had a lock on all the beers at Street Scene. I know these guys dont give a crap about their beer and it shows. Too bad.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Expected medium yellow/amber color, decent carbonation and head retention. Aroma positively reeks of dishsoap with a strange overtone of underarm deodorant. Soapy glass, perhaps? Flavor likewise dominated by soap. Pine, citrus hop flavor and a tidbit of malt appear before the lingering, soapy finish. Dreadful.
