BJ’s 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. BJ’s turns out a top notch IPA that competes with the best.

had a chance to taste this beer at the BJs in burbank. pours a light copper with light carbonation. the aroma is a forest of floral hops. very inviting. very drinkable with a lingering hop residue that covers the palate. a treat for those that enjoy IPAs that dont taste like rocket fuel. cheers

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.

Really nice hoppy beer. Great looking and the lace ringed the glass all the way to the bottom. Tasty. I wanted another one but had to leave. Sweet, bitter and malty. Yum!

It’s really, really really wet and happy. Hops are good. Drinking this with Curt, he says ditto.

On tap at the Elk Grove location. Dark amber / copper color with little white head, but great lacing down the glass. Aroma is resinous and floral hops. Flavor has some light caramel sweetness with good resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall I was impressed with this.

Dal9000 (633) - Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2013
At BJs brew house. Pours golden amber with a thin head that sticks to the glass. Very little immediate hoppy flavor with a slight slight malt. Then the pine hoppy flavor builds and finishes with a smooth citrus hoppy. And the next sip is the same- very little hops then a build after air hits the mouth after swallowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

tap from the Boulder brewpub - Pours lightly hazy copper with a nicely lacing head. There’s a very good grapefruit accented hop aroma. The flavor has more of those good, crisp citrus hops and a solid malt balance. It’s medium bodied and overall an enjoyable IPA, definitely the best of the sampler I had.
