On tap at the brewery downtown San DIego. This was one of many on tap that I tasted and thought it was just ok.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2008
On-tap at the TapRoom. Pours slightly hazy amber with a thinnish white head, good lace. Smells light syrupy hoppy, slightly fruity sweet, earthy, slightly nutty, some malts. Tastes of some iced tea, nutty hops and some sweet cereal malts. Not that good but drinkable. Medium body, good carbonation.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) Deep clear gold with white head. Aroma of pine, light fruit, light malt. Flavor doesnít match aroma, light malt body, grassy, light grain with a pine resin bitter. Mouth feel is light and watery. Overall, itís ok.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2012
A hazy golden/yellow colored beer, with a light beige head. The aroma of fruits like citrus, a little orange and hop. The taste is flat sweet with a little bitter. The aftertaste is vague sweet and a little bitter.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 5, 2002
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.

ALLOVATE (2467) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2012
At just on cool and into a straightwall. There is pine resin, heavily caramelised fruit, rubber and a note of tart berries on the nose. No head; a brilliant amber it produced with fine effervescence. Doughy and a little soapy and underlyingly plastic on the palate. Quenching fruit comes through, as some toffee malts, burnt toast and otherwise bready notes. Piney finish but lapsed in bitterness. Easily quaffable and I donít know why. Is it odd as this is just another APA!? (12fl.Oz, BB 30/04/13, Dan Murphyís Currambine)

Lunkie (1459) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Spicy hop malt aroma. Clear rich amber colour with poor head and lacing. Pepper malt hop spice flavour. Flat palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
