For an IPA, this wasnít so bad. I enjoyed it. For a BJís beer, this wasnít so good.

nike (966) - 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 (5415) - 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.

jgb9348 (5522) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Hazy golden orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of strong hops, some caramel and a good malt balance with a bit of citrus tucked in. Medium-bodied; Potent hoppy flavour with some good citrus and almost wheatie characteristics, but a nice malt backbone and some good grapefruit and slightly piney hop character shows well. Overall, a nice IPA for a brewpub and slightly better than you might have expected. However, it isnít sublime and incredible. I sampled this pint on draught at the BJs in Tustin, California with haddon90 on 27-August-2011.

marcus (8797) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2011

adnielsen (10427) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap @ BJs Boulder. Burnt orange appearance with a fluffy ivory head. Pretty piney, bushy hoppy nose. Flavor has a pretty full piney, bushy, organic hoppy flavor over a solid pale to caramel malty body. Somewhat bitter, fairly piney aftertaste.

Really nice hoppy beer. Great looking and the lace ringed the glass all the way to the bottom. Tasty. I wanted another one but had to leave. Sweet, bitter and malty. Yum!
