3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from a friend. Light amber pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice with fruity hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a very nice maltiness, crusty and crispy. Taste is nice and bitter, grapefruit, pineapple, nice crispy maltiness - I really like the malt profile in this one. Good stuff

Light amber pour with thin, fizzy head. Citrus, floral hop aroma with light malt as well. Taste is malty, citrus, nice bitterness which fades fairly quickly. Not bad

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy orange with a short head. Cereal and floral nose. Bitter flavor. Medium body, astringent finish. No sweetness and missing complexity and balance. Decent IPA but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from Henry’s. $6.50 a six pack. This is a new release, apparently taking the place of Stargazer. Looks nice, smells nice, but the flavor is rather dull. It’s hoppy, but it lacks the brightness and fruitiness I crave in an IPA. For whatever reason, Karl Strauss bottled beer has never impressed me like their draft beers. My guess is that this is really good on tap. As it is now, it’s just OK.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish-orange in color with a white foamy head and a noticable but not overpowering hop aroma. Good bitter, citrusy hop presence balanced by a smooth malty body. Definitely an IPA but not an overpowering one by any means. Good food-friendly IPA from a great brewery!

Bottle, 355ml. Hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head. Floral hoppy and roasted aromas. Medium to robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and heavily astringent. Medium sweet fruity and malty character into a medium to heavy bitter hoppy finish. Very pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 7%. Clear golden amber pour with a lasting foamy white head. Nose has notes of pine, grapefruit, lemon, lime and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation and a big bitter finish that lingers. Taste is very piney, with the fruit notes much more subdued and a solid malt profile that has hints of nuts, wood and caramel. Overall a fairly decent IPA, a little unexciting, bland even, but still quite drinkable.
