2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow straw color. Tastes like a mouthful of hay and grain with weak hop citrus -- like a lime or lemon wedge was squeezed into it. Maybe itís because I had an Endeavour and a Hopstorm next to this one, but Iím a regular BJís visitor (at least weekly, often more frequently) and this to me is the worst IPA Iíve tasted from them. My location (Pearland, TX) is promoting Field Day IPA and to my surprise, got rid of Saint Arnold Endeavour because, according to the manager "We didnít want three IPAs from the same brewer." Ummm, Endeavour is a double IPA and a damn good one. Field day can go away, in my opinion.

Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap at the BJís. Murky, medium copper pour with a medium thick off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Fresh, fragrant spruce aroma with some back end floral notes. Flavor has some juicy bittersweet grapefruit notes, a hint of celery (pleasant - but odd), a touch of maple syrup. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Pretty solid IPA.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is by the far the most boring IPA Iíve ever tasted. Color is pale. Aroma is decent - floral and some spice. But there is almost no flavor at all - none of the nice hop kick you want from an IPA. And then it finished very dry with a nasty pucker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange color.white head that disappeared pretty fast. Juicy citrus hops and some sweet malts combine to make this a pretty nice beverage. It went well with the food I was eating...hops are up front a bit more than the malt...which is what an IPA should have.
