Troupis (236) - - JUL 3, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Tap at Arlington. Pours a clear Light orange color. Tall foamy head. Aroma is citrus hops, big hoppy notes. Slight sweet notes. Flavor is sharp hops upfront that last through the finish. Good flavor, American hop intensity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50belair (3590) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2014
On tap at BJís. Clear amber pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Grapefruit hop notes dominate. Good balance with a nice malty backbone. Average body and mouthfeel.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2014
(tap San Mateo) slightly hazy light copper. Modest pine hops aroma. Flavor is a little pine hops with a decent malt backbone. Not as hoppy as the description - would be a good "gateway" IPA.
