On tap. Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a nice pine hoppiness with hints of grapefruit and resin. Flavor is similar with pine and more resin coming through as well as a strong sweet grain backbone.

Back log from 4/11. Solid IPA. Nothing extraordinary. Aroma was crisp, citrus hops, sweet floral notes, and sweet malt. Taste was sweet orange peel, caramel malt, bitter citrus hoppy taste. Palate was light bodied, fizzy carbonation, medium bitter finish.

kevinator (2055) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
Decent beer but not overly hoppy as one would expect. It had aromas of floral and piney hops but not too strong. Copper coloring with a thin head. Average palate with a smoothness and decent carbonation. Good blend of flavors with mild bitterness, nothing to harsh. Mild malty after-flavors that complimented. A good but safe IPA.

MadRobin (2884) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA. Clear, bright medium amber with a creamy off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of tangerine, tropical fruit, pine and caramel. Taste of caramel, tropical fruit, grapefruit and pineapple. Full/medium body and low/medium carbonization. A fine fruity West Coast style IPA with a nice nix of hops and a rich body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Not bad... But not really awesome either. It's a decent IPA, but unfortunately for BJ's we live in a beer world that is full of wonderful IPAs all around us. It's citrusy, it's piney, and it's drinkable, but that's about all it has going for it.

radio_nowhere (1457) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft at restaurant in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pilsner glass, clear ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine/slight fruity hops with malt backing. Taste seems to lean more pine/earth bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter, sweet with equal finish. Strange enough not a huge hop step up from their pale ale, just an okay IPA.
