2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is so faint as to be almost undetectable. Flavor brings out some pine and caramel notes, along with light sweetness. Quite bitter from start to finish, leading me to think it was an old pour; no aroma to go with the bitterness. Again, a lightly metallic aftertaste.

On tap - part of a flight and decent head even five minutes after the beers were delivered. Nice lacing with a grapefruit hoppy aroma. Resinous mouthfeel. Decent dry mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

BJís Hopstorm is a surprisingly good IPA from a long time brewhouse chain. Strong floral aroma coming from a bright yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Taste is well balanced with a solid malt backbone with an intoxicating mix of floral notes. BJís turns out a top notch IPA that competes with the best.

Amber with a moderate foam. Citrus aroma, some hay. Body is lightly bitter without real depth. Light malts and average hop bitterness finishes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A chain-restaurant IPA. I like BJs (pun semi-intended) and want it to be good but their beer seems to aim for the path of least resistance despite a corporate culture (I have a close relative who is high up there) that I actually think would welcome more innovation than their brutally bland safe beers.

Sample at BJís Polaris on 6/27/14. Clear gold to amber in color with a thick white head. Aroma of malt with grassy and citrusy hops. Malty and piney flavor with grapefruit bitterness and a slight astrigency in the finish.

Nothing to write home about. Not overly hoppy. Should be a pale ale. Nice head n color.
