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.

On tap st the BJs in Cincinnati. Deep golden color with a sticky off white head. Light citrus hop nose. Sweet mandarin orange and grapefruit juice hop flavors. A little on the thin side. Not very interesting.

Poured up on tap at the BJís in Palmdale, CA where I see a clear gold body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma has citrus like clementine going on as well as a more tart grapefruit citrus sensation. The taste is the same with timid citrus hop bitterness from a grapefruit note to a decent level of malt sweetened clementine and grapefruit. This is a nice easy going IPA.

This one of the better beers at BJs. But for an IPA there's not much to it. Modest amount of hops. Just average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (2001) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2013
On tap @ BJís Montebello, CA. Golden blond color, hazy. Sticky white head, good lacing. Aromaís: hop, citrus, a bit earthy. Retronasal itís very strong hops, acidic, flowery, a bit earthy. Flavor is bitter, but not harsh, with a hint of malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Long finish, bitterness remains. Nice!

Overall a great beer! Sometimes not available because of popularity but I always order it when in stock. Great head and very hoppy taste. Easy to taste the spices.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2013
This has a dark orange color with slight amber hues. It has a bright white head that looks soapy. It has a nice, sweet, and sticky hop aroma with caramel malts that are really impressive for BJís. The mouth feel is thin and.. well, too thin for my palate. it almost tastes like a double IPA, but malty and it has a nice bod, with an English-style breadiness to it. It also has a beefy, but modest, hop presence. Not bad, and not offensive.

Draft @ The Falls location that recently opened. Pours slightly hazy orangish golden color with white head. Aromas of grapefruit rind and some lemon. Citrus flavor with some sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. Better than I was expecting.
