Velmi dobrá IPA. Stylové lahve a obal, plná chuť, tmavší jantarová barva, hustá pěna. Lahváč v San Franciscu. Fashawn (597) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2015
Aroma carico di fiori d’arancia, molto dolce sulle prime. scorza di agrumi,parecchio pompelmo, ed un po’ di pino nel sottofondo. Attacco di pane dolce, watery come tessitura ma non slegata. Amaro da scorza di agrumi, leggermente il pino. Un po’ di ritorno alcolico, l’unico difetto di una birra che piace e si lascia bere. Molto ben fatta. Carbonatazione ai minimi termini, liscia, ben bilanciata. SDbrewgirl (2) - USA - NOV 12, 2009 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2009 Poured clear, dark gold in color. Great aroma--tons of pine, citrus. Flavor was clean, bright, very hoppy. FInished dry with lingering bitterness. Solid IPA. itfitz (10) - California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
This is possibly Karl Strauss’ BEST publicly-available offering. It’s a well-balanced San Diego-style IPA with perfect hoppiness combined with a mild alcohol feel and light refreshing malt tones which linger just long enough to make you thirsty for another sip. There are overlying subtleties of nuts, toast, roasty, resin, grass and herbs, This is a well-done IPA from a great German-style brewer. bittersbetter (6) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011 does not count
I was initially bummed out by the beer.. I’m quite the hop-head and despite the 60 IBUs this beer has, the first sip on the tongue has very little bite to it. It starts off super malty, however sticking to its IPA name, its got a dry, bitter after-taste that lingers for some time. Extremely drinakable beer and great for those times when you want a beer with some bite but don’t want a right-off-the-bat palate destroyer.

My favorite beer from Karl Strauss. Great amber color. Crisp IPA with a fast rising hoppy flavor. Finishes with a pure hoppy aroma and taste. Body is lighter than some IPA’s which makes it an easy to drink but high quality IPA. Has become one of my favorite beers to keep in the fridge. j0shregan (2) - Monrovia, California, USA - OCT 13, 2011 does not count
This is very tasty stuff.. Very Drinkable, The 6.5% does a very good job at hiding itself in the taste. Quenched my thirst and also sells for an appropriate price. dsmith4 (50) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Simply a very nice all round ipa, recommended from an ipa fan, a great example of a West coast ipa BDD89 (12) - young, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
Hazy amber/golden colour. Classic hoppy ipa aroma. Sweet, piney taste with a good malt balance. Great aftertaste. Bitter. Marheb (5717) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Forte arôme de cannabis, pamplemousse et résine de pin dans un liquide qui semble farouche. Corps bien aéré, longue amertume qui surf sur la resine et une franche sécheresse.
