Mora2000 (5695) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2012
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.

mmmbeer (1241) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Pilsner glass at the Arborwalk Austin location- served a transparent copper color, aroma of pine and citrus. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt and caramel sensations are nicely balanced in this IPA for a change, hearty hop crescent in the middle, finish is mildly acidic with just a faint note of sweetness. Hooray beer!

Very hoppy. The aroma is enjoyable. But so much hoppiness that itís hard to taste anything else. Still the best beer brewed at BJs.

This beer was abysmal. The intro appearance and aroma werenít bad but the taste was awful. It reminded me of some early homebrew IPA attempts. A little too sweet along with the piney hops, with a slight off flavor. Not sure if it was the choice of hops or a bad batch. Would not buy again.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at The Woodlands,Shenendoah location. Like a boss. Pours a weak tea amber with a nose of coppery hops and grapefruit. Flavor is an assertive blend of hops and grapefruit. Tingly mouthfeel. Tastes great but the other components are lacking.

Poured from a draft into an imperial pint glass at BJís Restaurant and Brewery in Culver City, Calif. About a finger of head when I got it. Color was honey golden pale. Fluffy white lacing on the top. Really good looking film - white, soapy and foamy - that lasted throughout the pour. Smelled citrus hops, a mixture of tangerine and lemon. Wet, caramel malts as well. Initially the taste was worse than the smell. More grainy and rough. Caramel malts mixed with citrus hops. Bitter finish in the tongue after. Got used to it more later. A very poor manís Double Jack. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I would definitely try it again if itís in the BJís near my place.

Pours a light copper color. Aroma is slightly floral with a hoppy nose. Bitter taste, which dissipates as you drink it. This beer is clean, very light for an IPA, overall a tasty IPA.
