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.

2.7/5  rDev -26%

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

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.

2.95/5  rDev -19.2%

Pours a copper orange color with a frothy white head that offers little retention, but a bit of lacing. Smells like crystal malt a bit of citrus hop aroma bit the malt dominates. I actually had a strong aroma association of being at the home brew store with this beer. It reminds me of the malt bins and cracking grain in the mill. Not an unpleasant odor, but not one you expect from a west coast IPA either. Malty and full bodied on the palate this beer starts with a little caramel sweetness and finishes with some non desrcript bitterness. Overall not my favorite IPA but for 3.99 for the bomber I am not too worried about it.
