I have to go against the grain on this beer. It is poorly mqde and not good. It does look nice with a a hazy amber color and thick lacing head. But a minimum of hop aroma or flavor combined with a light grain flavor and little else here.

Evolutionary (299) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Tap at Tuttle Bjs. Nose is pure hop and pour is as expected. Little head here. Fairly well balanced and good hop cutting thru. Citrus notes are hiding in the back and not prominent. ---Rated via my mouth

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Primarily a piny aroma. Pours an ambers with a long lasting whit head and nice lacing. A piney hops taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable with my salad, but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

July 2012. On tap at BJís in Tukwila as part of a sampler. Copper color with a white head. A bit muted in terms of hops, but still a nice IPA and good on a warm July day.

SHIG (3645) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Draft: Poured a golden to copper color with an off white head. Aroma is light hops. Nice soft hops taste that seemed thin, but refreshing on the hot Florida day.

Panzuriel (1358) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Hopstorm pours a medium copper clear with a quarter inch head of tiny bubbles. Nose is crisp with pine hop aroma. Taste is sharp with floral hops and pine resin. Body lively. Finishes with good bitters.

Itís really, really really wet and happy. Hops are good. Drinking this with Curt, he says ditto.

dlihcsnatas (341) - Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2013
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 (1117) - 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.
