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.

snoworsummer (2193) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Draft at BJís Tysons Corner. Pours clear amber with a moderate, frothy off-white head. Smells like pine, grapefruit, and resin hops with biscuit, straw malt, and pear. Tastes like strong hop bitterness, sweet malt, and fruity. Dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is balanced evenly between the caramel malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is pretty well the same up front, but the sweet malt wins out towards the finish, and thereís that weird chemical flavor that comes on late in the finish again. This starts out ok, but the finish just ruins it. Medium bodied with a slight cling on the back end. Fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty boring IPA.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Nice, balanced ipa. Not huge on the hops or bitterness, but the hop profile (while light) was quite complex. Fruity sweet grapefruit, tropical fruit, floral, and pine. Just mellower. Decent malty backbone as well. Not great, but Iíd get again."

Tbone14 (2) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2014 does not count
This beer pours golden brown with minimal head. Right off the bat you can smell the hops. This is one of my favorite IPAs to drink, it is crisp and refreshing, without any bitter after taste.

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.
