BJís Whiskey Barrel Stout - Bourbon Tatonka
On tap in Huntsville resteraunt. This must have been a better batch. Than other ratings. Thin head. I don't know what I am missing here. Vanilla oak. Toasted oak. Not a building bitterness. Sweet oak vanilla. Only a bit thinner than I'd want a bit more body but a small complaint. Smells like a nice barrel aged beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BJís Equi-hops IPA
Poured up on tap at the Chandler BJís, where it was brewed, where it exhibits a clear copper to gold body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up malts and spicy earthy almost black tea leaf like hops as well as a sense of sweet hoppy fruitiness. The taste delivers fairly bright crisp hops that bleed quickly into a drying sensation. This hop†† creates earthy spicy and earthy tea notes blended in with some modest juicy citrus hoppiness. Thereís plenty of hop bitterness to go around but the slight juicy citrus and crisp dryness help create a cohesive experience. Pretty nice.† I like this hop. The earthy spicy tea really works for me. Iíll drink this again.
