Light amber brew with thin white head that didnít last. Did retain some lacing. Smells of citrus hops and tastes of grapefruit. Very strongly hopped. Left a dry feel on the toungue. Pretty good but for the extreme price tag on it not something I would want to go back for. On a side note, the waiter I got on this visit wasnít very good, the food wasnít really as good as me or my family remember it being in the past, and we was a bit let down considering the cost of it all. May have been the last BJ beer Iíll ever have.

llcooldave (1081) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Copper orange in the glass. Fresh citrus and tropical nose. Clean toasty malt flavors with an assertive piney bitter hops that trails in the aftertaste. Overall, much better than expected.

8 apr 2013, tap. Apricot, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is mild grapefruit citrus. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Grassy and faint lemon hops. Mild granola malt. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one during a business lunch in Cupertino. Not too bad, but the good outdoor atmosphere enhanced the enjoyment

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - APR 30, 2013
On tap in Carlsbad, pretty boring IPA in San Diego standards, tastes like a plain pale ale, it's not bad it's just a straight pale not even as hoppy as Dales pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (9667) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2013
Tap at BJs Aurora. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, and resin hops with biscuit and straw malt and pear esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Semi-lucent copper. I love inventing vocabulary. The head is white, thi., and lasting. The lacing is blanketous. The aroma is faint, and a little foody and malty. The palate packs a big big. Refreshing. The flavor is dominated by a bittersweet maltiness followed by a bitter, hoppy resin.

PorterPounder (5537) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Orlando, Fl. - on tap at BJs. Murky dark orange pour - no head to speak of. Bubble gum and crystal malt aroma. Flavor has some hard candy sweetness, just a touch of citrus bitterness, some nuttiness and caramel in the back end. Thick enough mouthfeel - overall tastes a it like homebrew with too many ingredients.

Foxbush (1268) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft at brewhouse was on 1604. The IPA poured a light amber with a white frothy head. The aroma had hoppy nose with notes of grapefruits and lemon. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The taste was dry and hoppy with notes of grapefruit. The IPA finished dry and bitter. This is more like an APA than IPA.

Nothing extraordinary here, just a good, solid IPA. Hops arenít as in your face as in some IPAs, but give a nice flavor on top of a solid base beer. Good choice on a warm day.
