Amber color. Aroma dominated by a citrus aroma.Well balenced. Malt flavor followed by a huge hop presence and a warming alcohol finish. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Highly recomended.
BJ’s Willowbrook. Houston TX. Cloudy and dark gold. Not much nose and served too cold. Decent hop profile pretty tame for a double ipa. DenverLogan (1230) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Served at the Aurora, COLORADO location. Light amber with significant head and lace. Straw hop aroma. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of straw, pine and grapefruit hops with nice malt backdrop. Overall very full bodies, bright, refreshing and bold with a tasty hop - malt balance. jcwattsrugger (12506) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2013

Sampled at the BJs in San Mateo. A nice IPA but i would not call it double, but perhaps by their standard. Its not bad, a good drinking brew, but not a big double IPA. JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2009

bjs in boulder. I am assuming that this is the harpoon ipa, so my review is for that one here. I really enjoyed this one. If you go to a bjs, hope that this is one of the special beers they have on tap at the time. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 I always order this (if available) or the Tatonka stout when I go. Rather smooth for an Imperial IPA. Hops are obvious, but are mellowed with some citrus flavors. A very good IPA, but it really can’t be compared to the Ruination or YuleSmith offerings. I would still definitely drink this again. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 25, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Pours dark amber color with thick white head. This was a decent IIPA. Nice strong citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor is plenty bitter, lots of citrus, and plenty of malt and alcohol to back the hops. I always enjoy an IIPA leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2004 On tap at the BJ’s Portland, OR location. Pours a deep golden color. The aroma is lacking but the little I managed to pick up is hops, with some citrus undertones. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Yes, there is a heavy presence of hops throughout this beer. However, the hops aren’t overpowering. This is a well balanced hoppy beer. The finish leaves a tingling of hops long after the last sip. bigbeersrule (113) - USA - JAN 30, 2004
This beer is one of the new fangled over the top IPA's. I love big beers but this beer is not balanced unless you want to be a total hop freak. The regular IPA is more balanced and drinkable but if you want to have hops growing out of different parts of your body after you drink it than you need to try it.
