A decent mid-range IPA. It is clear and crisp with a good hop bite to it. I would probably give it higher marks if it came in a non frosted glass that really de-accentuated the hop aroma and initial sips. Still one if the better options from this chain.

Finally something drinkable for hopheads. Itís not stellar, but is a true india pale ale with all the typical melon and citrus tones and a somewhat bitter finish. Far, far better than their watery, bland Piranha Pale Ale. I hope they keep it available and fresh -- it will be all I drink when I end up here.

One of the better beers I had at BJís. Good hop profile with a good balance with the malts. Refreshing and easy to drink.

6/16/12. On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Tropical fruit aroma with definite mango and lots of sweet caramel. Super sweet caramel flavors with bits of sweet hops and a touch of lingering hoppiness. Meh.

On tap; poured a dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma of earth, citrus, caramel, and a hint of BO. Earthy flavor, a touch harsh, with a dose of citrus. Better than expected.

On tap at BJís in Allen, Texas. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with a lot of grass and a little bit of orange citrus thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of bitterness up front, with a little grass, resin and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

pours a clear amber hue with a small head that is mostly diminishing aroma of hops, citrus,and a slight orange peel aroma flavor is watery with a slight bitterness at the end - wish it was a tad more bitter but this beer is still descent medium mouthfeel with light carbonation

Wow, way to step it up bjís. Nice amber pour with a cream head. Nose is big fresh grapefruit hops, sharp, faint bitterness, and citrus. Very nice on the palate, sharp bitter hops upfront, fresh grapefruit, and a smooth finish.
