A decent IPA with light copper coloring and hoppy aroma. Citrusy and a bit sweet. It was enjoyable but I was jealous of the Soul Style my companion had since this paled in comparison in citrus aroma and aftertaste.

Poured into pilsner glass from tap, nice 1 finger cream head, leaves nice lacing throughout the journey. Pal e golden clear, nice looking beer. Minimal hop smell, but a very solid IPA. A little on the sweet side, but passable, could sit around and drink this all day. Bitterness is minimal, nice finish

A: Copper with a foamy white head.

S: Nose has notes of pineapple, citrus, apricot, and mango.

T: Grassy, floral, citrus, and pineapple flavors with a nice malt backbone.

M: Light bodied, very refreshing for an IPA.

O: Perhaps this is a bias against BJs, but I did not expect an IPA this good.

Half finger head with little retention on a hazy golden and burnt orange body. Excellent lacing. Aroma is excellent and very full on the nose with tangerine, grapefruit, toasted malts and a hint of pine. The citrus in the flavor is fairly sour with strong herbal presence and significant degree of pine resin finish. Overall very hoppy but seems a little disorganized likely due to its complexity. Medium body and moderate carbonation. One if the better crafted beers here that I have had.
