3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at El Paso, TX location-pours clear orange with a froathy eggshell head. some sparse lacing going on here too. nose is mostly sweet sticky passionfruit tropical notes however, not all that great smelling. more cleaner than anything in the hop notes. flavors start tropical with lite resin and grapefruit on the finish. reminds me of deviant dales ipa however, i like this a little more. long resin almost minty finish. Very sweet yet somewhat dirty hop flavors mark this one down a few notches. BJís you have a long ways to go till you make a great brew.

Tap at bjís Plano. Pours a light copper with a thin off white head. The aromas are pine, paint thinner, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Cheers!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. I was here with friends, so I didnít take notes, but I remember a pleasing hoppy aroma with floral and citrus standing out. The flavor was a bit more disappointing with some caramel and butter muddling an otherwise decent hop profile. Drinkable.

On tap at New Braunfels location. Pours a clear copper with medium frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is pine and floral hops. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet pine hop and grapefruit with light bitter finish. Easy to drink a good IPA from BJs.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden orange with a thick head, great lacing. Aroma of crazy citric hops, probably citra and Amarillo. Taste follows, really citrusy. RIS is a solid ipa

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent mid-range IPA. It is clear and crisp with a good hop bite to it. I would probably give it higher marks if it came in a non frosted glass that really de-accentuated the hop aroma and initial sips. Still one if the better options from this chain.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finally something drinkable for hopheads. Itís not stellar, but is a true india pale ale with all the typical melon and citrus tones and a somewhat bitter finish. Far, far better than their watery, bland Piranha Pale Ale. I hope they keep it available and fresh -- it will be all I drink when I end up here.

One of the better beers I had at BJís. Good hop profile with a good balance with the malts. Refreshing and easy to drink.

6/16/12. On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Tropical fruit aroma with definite mango and lots of sweet caramel. Super sweet caramel flavors with bits of sweet hops and a touch of lingering hoppiness. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap; poured a dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma of earth, citrus, caramel, and a hint of BO. Earthy flavor, a touch harsh, with a dose of citrus. Better than expected.
