Decent beer but not overly hoppy as one would expect. It had aromas of floral and piney hops but not too strong. Copper coloring with a thin head. Average palate with a smoothness and decent carbonation. Good blend of flavors with mild bitterness, nothing to harsh. Mild malty after-flavors that complimented. A good but safe IPA.

Draft. Clear dark amber IPA. Strong hop aroma, medium body, thin head. Well balanced IPA with lots of flavor. Better than expected.

MadRobin (2066) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA. Clear, bright medium amber with a creamy off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of tangerine, tropical fruit, pine and caramel. Taste of caramel, tropical fruit, grapefruit and pineapple. Full/medium body and low/medium carbonization. A fine fruity West Coast style IPA with a nice nix of hops and a rich body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad... But not really awesome either. It's a decent IPA, but unfortunately for BJ's we live in a beer world that is full of wonderful IPAs all around us. It's citrusy, it's piney, and it's drinkable, but that's about all it has going for it.

radio_nowhere (905) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft at restaurant in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pilsner glass, clear ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine/slight fruity hops with malt backing. Taste seems to lean more pine/earth bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter, sweet with equal finish. Strange enough not a huge hop step up from their pale ale, just an okay IPA.

wheresyourball (517) - El Cajon, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
On tap at the new BJís in Mission Valley. Pours a golden blonde, hazy. Nose is hops, citrus, earth, floral. Flavor is mainly bitter all the way through, with only a hint of malt. Medium bodied.

DialSquare (2906) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2014
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

Nickls (1883) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 11, 2014
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.

Dal9000 (201) - Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2013
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
