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)

bnoel09 (416) - Elk Grove, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
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.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Clear dark gold with a small head that settles into a thin cap, but leaves good lace. Nice sticky aroma of floral resin, a touch of pine, and perhaps some lemon and/or orange. Flavor is nice and full and just as hoppy as any IPA fan can ask for. Starts nice and grapefruity with a stern bitterness, melting into a resiny pine and floral bitterness, ending floral and sticky. The maltiness is sweet and caramelly, but quiet. Quiet enough to let the hops be the star, but present enough to balance. Quite the understated IPA. Full and hoppy.

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Amber color in the glass it has a an aroma of pine and malts. The taste had bitterness but not a good balance of other flavors. Average IPA.

TheGB (502) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Pours amber with little head. Slightly cloudy amber color. Light aroma of hops. Medium bodied with a smooth, but rather flat palate.

bpreo (1523) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2011
For an IPA, this wasnít so bad. I enjoyed it. For a BJís beer, this wasnít so good.

nike (950) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Draft, decent IPA. Not a heavy hoppy aroma, and not heavy hoppy flavor, but good brew. Balanced, some hop taste, good lacing, and hoppy bitter finish.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Not a ton of hop aroma. Looks fine. Plenty of bittering hops, especially in the finish. Itís okay but a bit nutty and definitely unbalanced by the bittering hops.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Pint, Draft, Cincinnati, OH location. Gold brown color, thin slight hay like malt, lingering bitterness. High carbonation, slick feel. A bit of a chemical aftertaste. Not the best IPA, but the best beer in the pub. I did the flight after this and the IPA was the best.
