On tap at BJ's in Valencia, CA.

Pours a clear dark gold with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some nice herbal and pine hops. Taste is the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good but somewhat basic pale ale.

Had this at the Oracle Tucson location. Glad to see that there is a consolidated list... Wait, maybe there isn't yet. Oh well.

A - Served with a tiny head, looks like it went down while waiting to be served. There was some lacing during the whole glass. It was a dark, clear, straw color.

S - The aroma of this beer has to be its best aspect. Lots of piney, citrusy hops. Is this really just a pale ale? I think not, more like a India pale ale.

T - Lots of upfront sweetness that yields to to an intense hoppy bitterness.

M - The mouthfeel for this beer is a tad high on the carbonation in my opinion. Also, there isn't that hop oiliness that remains in the palate that I usually expect.

O - This is not your typical pale ale. It is super hopped and is worth trying for any of you hopheads out there.

First had: on tap at BJ's, Westminster, CO

A good selection from BJ's, as are many of their brews I sampled. Poured a clear, slightly bronzed amber color, with a small white head that retained and laced well. Sweet malts in the aroma, bready, nicely balanced with citrus and piney hops. The taste follows the aroma basically; simple as that. Light-medium body, very basic, and quite drinkable.

I originally thought this was an IPA...and a pretty damn lackluster one at that, but knowing now that it's only a pale, it's not bad at all!

Pale amber pour, translucent, light colored head, and nice lacing.

Aroma was lightly malty, with some slight piny hops.

Taste was fairly bitter and hoppy. Quite nice for a pale. Some caramel malts in the back balance it out nicely.

Feel was light, and crisp, with nice carbonation.

Overall, a nice hoppy pale ale. So far, one of the better-to-style BJ's brews.
