3/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

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.
