Meh. Incredibly bitter, not balanced well at all. Love IPAs, didn't finish the 5 ounce taster of this one. Get the brewmaster's reserve double IPA when you're at BJ's if it's available.

Aroma: medium intensity grass and pine. Taste: sweet malt, citrus zest, grass and pines. Well mixed and easy drinkable. Good IPA with long lasting pine aftertaste

Bright and hoppy with a peppery piney hop bite. The hops coalesce in the finish in a spritzy stinging wash. Mild caramel malt base. Not a lot of citrus. More east coast and earthy. Very good.

On tap at the south Reno location. A clear light amber with an off-white head. Nicely balanced with fruity spice and earthy pine notes. Light malty sweetness. Clean bittersweet finish. Very tasty. Also picked up a six-pack of cans brewed and canned in Temple, Texas.

I can’t believe this has an IBU of anywhere near what is stated. This is a light, crisp ale but nowhere near an IPA. Still, it’s better than Bud or Miller.

hotstuff (5200) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2017
Rated on 4-22-2017 at BJ’s in Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer is a small cream colored head that is fully lasting throughout my rating, transparent golden body, very little carbonation observed, and a good amount of lacing adorns the glass. The aroma is citrus hops, bitter, grass, and earthy. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, earthy, and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish/aftertaste. It is nothing special for the style and it is the best beer of my beer flight.

This draft brew from a restaurant was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized very off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated body transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The strange flavor contained notes of deep hops. Not one that I would likely drink again.

asheft (3097) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
On tap BJ’s, JAX. Potent tangy peach aroma. Crystal clear copper under a lacy off-white cover. Sweet malty flavour with lots of stone fruit and a decent bitterness to balance the sweetness. Secrets of lychee fruit and red cherries. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.

From tap at BJ's in Tallahassee. Rich gold color with thin white foam head. Nose is slight but classic IPA. Taste is citrus/grapefruit and some bitter hops on finish. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fairly bitter and a good IPA, but overall nothing particularly special about it.
