look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Clear dark orange amber with a white head.
Nose is pear with stone fruit undertones.
Mouthfeel is thin but well balanced and inviting.
Flavors are simple lightly burned toast. Not a lot of bright bitterness in this one - not really like an American IPA but decent toasty biscuity flavors.
Finish is light bitter grapefruit/bitter coffee character.

Tasted April 14th 2011 (from notes)
Poured into a New Belgium snifter
A - Light copper, one finger Whiteish head and little lacing
S - Lightly smells of citrus and floral hops. A semi sweet malt. I am maybe getting a Belgian yeast? Not much of a nose
T - A little floral, pine, malty, nice bitterness, maybe so toasted barley. Maybe some yeast or something sweet. Not much of a flavor
M - No density, no finish, not much of anything but a nice bitterness and a bit of sweetness
D - This is the lightest IPA I have had yet. If you don't like or drink IPA, try and start with this one. I will say it is very balanced
Final thought - This beer is not much of a craft brew if you ask me. Everything smells and taste like an IPA just a really light one

Karl Strauss Tower 10 IPA (tap)
Clear pale yellow with thin head and no retention. Light citrus aroma. Bright citrusy taste with moderate hoppy linger and a medicinal aftertaste. Very thin feel and a light bite.
Nice bright citrus flavor but that’s all that’s going on. No feel, no malt and a poor linger and aftertaste make this an avoidable beer.
Serving type: on-tap
