3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
