On tap at tuttle mall location on 1-28-12.

A pours a cleared light copper with one finger off white head. Nice lacing.

S something is a off. A little stale aroma... smells like a homebrew full of cascade hops a few weeks old.

T much imoroved from the smell. Very cascade type citrus wih a note of alcohol present. A liitle stale tasting again. A nice bitterness level.

M/O Mouthfeel is pretty spot on, the best part of this brew. Overall, better than drinking Bmc, but seems BJs has a way to go in the beer delivery methods, I.e. fresh beer from clean lines. Remember this being fresher with more tropical notes a few months ago.

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.

On tap at BJ’s in Allen, Texas. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with a lot of grass and a little bit of orange citrus thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of bitterness up front, with a little grass, resin and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I enjoyed this IPA. The smell was great, the taste was a little bit of a let down. Still quite good, but if the flavor matches the nose, it would be great.

Didn't love it. Maybe something was off with this batch but wasn't what I prefer out of an IPA.
