On tap from the Tallahassee restaurant. This was my favorite of all of the BJs sampled: floral, caramel, crisp, resin, pine. Good balance, easy drinking. 7.4

Tap. Clearer amber orange. Citrusy, piney, slight vanilla in the aroma. Pine, but more grapefruit in the flavor. Straightforward, hoppy and fairly clean. Medium to lighter body.

At BJs brew house. Pours golden amber with a thin head that sticks to the glass. Very little immediate hoppy flavor with a slight slight malt. Then the pine hoppy flavor builds and finishes with a smooth citrus hoppy. And the next sip is the same- very little hops then a build after air hits the mouth after swallowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Mineral taste and nose. Smells like a rusty nail or copper penny. Taste is bitter. Slight juiciness. But terrible finish

Meh. Incredibly bitter, not balanced well at all. Love IPAs, didn't finish the 5 ounce taster of this one. Get the brewmaster's reserve double IPA when you're at BJ's if it's available.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought slight grass, pine, hints of orange, touch of caramel and toffee as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight grass, pine, hints of grain, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

jbruner (2318) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow with dissipating white head and light lace. Aroma is slight hop and bready grain. Taste follows, slightly hoppier than the nose, but still not that great. Unimpressed, Meh.

theisti (3242) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 15, 2013
5-6 oz mini pils flute draft at the BJs Brewhouse in Coral Springs, Florida. The pour is clear golden copper with not much of an off white head. The aroma almost nothing, just incredibly faint earthiness. The taste is a strange blend of herbal earthy bitter and a sort of a pungent vegetal. Some dank weed in the finish, though not really in the normal pleasant way. The palate is medium bodied with soft to no carbonation and the weird aftertaste. Flawed, canít imagine the perception of ďIPAĒ a newbie would get from this beer.

douglas88 (6034) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at the Hillsboro location. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is fruit and resinous hops. The flavor is also quite full of sweet resin hops, caramel, a good bit of bitterness. Fits oddly, rough and not well put together, but altogether decent.

Clear medium amber with a solid 2-finger head and thick streaks of lace. Clean sweet caramel malt moves smartly through the palate. Hops show very late, lasting deep into a lingering finish. A solid mid-range IPA. Highly recommended.
