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.

Light copper pour - fairly sweet throughout, but at least it is a clean sweetness of lightly caramelized sugars that does not interfere with the hop character, which is the star of the show here - hops are lightly earthy, with fairly strong notes of pine and bright citric character that linger long into the finish - a bit sweet for me, but a solid IPA.

Clear orange color, decent head. Northwest hops in the nose. Medium malt through the middle with a pronounced hop finish. Pretty balanced IPA.

Multiple hops were used brewing this beer and you can taste that. Very bitter but still in a very drinkable way. Smooth with good CO2 content, you taste hops thats all. (Houston 201205)

On tap at the Elk Grove location. Dark amber / copper color with little white head, but great lacing down the glass. Aroma is resinous and floral hops. Flavor has some light caramel sweetness with good resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall I was impressed with this.
