WesIRS (4) - Alta Loma, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
On draught at Bjs Rancho. Poured a dark hazy golden color with tiny white head. Aroma was very piney. Taste was somewhat bitter with nice malt balance. I was very surprised by this one for a BJs brew.

phaleslu (7668) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Draft served in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with an off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace and a spotty film behind. Sweet and malty and grainy. Orange, macaroon, grass, and florals provide some balance, but itís all over the place. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel starts muddled, gets too sweet in the middle, and finishes with a bit of bitterness. After some good pale ales, this one is a total mess. Maybe six hops are too many.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Draft... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aromatic standouts are piney resin and floral blossoms. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is pleasantly bitter and tongue-numbing. Earthy and spicy hops in this east coast-style IPA. Finishes moderately bitter, slightly raspy and dry.

maddmatt639 (321) - Pacifica, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Light retention and light lacing. Smells of citrus, orange and pineapple. Tastes of orange peel, lemon and dry hops. Semi-bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Amber body, thin wispy head. Bold hop front to both the nose and taste: not as bitter as the aroma suggests: mild spice and fruity flavour with a slight citrus bite in the finish: decent.
