On-tap at BJ's Laguna Hills and served in a shaker pint. On to the beer:

This is a light copper colored beer with yellow and orange hues and a sturdy white head on top. Spotty lace dots itself all around the glass. The aroma could be considered "mild" by some or "balanced" by other per American IPA, but one thing I can think of is appetizing. Not only clean, but with good doses of sweet grapefruit and pine.

Who cares if this isn't a hop bomb? Hopstorm has an attractive flavor profile. It's clean, with a slight carmelization aspect, vague hop oils, orange, tangerine, grapefruit....someone bring out the fruit basket! Not bitter, medium bodied, and low carbonated, Hopstorm is another pleasurable ale in the BJ's lineup of beers.

Good enough IPA...definitely NOT a "hop storm" as the name implies, but maybe compared to their other offerings it is... I said I would try it, but immediately went back to ordering the back row of 3rd party IPAs at the bar... Other Cali IPAs are much better (Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Schubros, Stone, etc).

I really enjoyed this beer. I'm a hop whore. I love super butter IPAs that are strong and I love thick mouth feeling DIPAs. I really not a fan of most session IPAs. I also do not like drinking beer as I eat. This IPA, however, was very light, but balanced, complex and with a sweet after taste. It was excellent to drink with my meal (salmon and rice). If I wasn't loaded up with some great beers at home id of purchased a growler. I was really impressed with this beer and would get it again, especially with a meal.
