Decent beer from Karl Strauss. Light amber color with a thin head. Aroma of malt and citra hops. Sweet malt with a hop aftertaste of citrus and grass. Pretty balanced for an IPA although didn't quite have the kick like some other SD IPA's. Still a good beer I'd get again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear, but somewhat sunwashed amber color with a sturdy cap that splashes dots of lacing

Smell: Balanced aroma of caramel malt with tangerine and pine

Taste: Caramel opening with a growing tangerine and pine bitterness that evens things out by mid-palate; after the swallow, the sweeter malt flavors tend to dominate but there are plenty of hop elements that continue into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: While this isn't in the top echelon of San Diego IPAs, it is a big improvement over Stargazer and can certainly hold its own, particularly for those that seek a little balancing malt sweetness

Thanks, BevmoIan, for the opportunity and, mrmiles, for the chance to revisit

Pretty good IPA. I’m here for San Diego Beer Week and just had their special Heavy Pettie Double IPA which, according to claims is more bitter, but seems less. This beer was served in a pint shaker with a decent, fine, foamy, off white head that soon settled down and a lots of fine lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is hop, malt, resin, a little barn. caramel. Flavor’s much the same with more impact. Balance is heavy in favor of bitter, quite dry, and some good carbonic tang. Body & carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor and has long legs. If you get a chance go for the Heavy Pettie. This’ll do instead if ye caint.
