tap at the Pittsburgh location

Pours a lightly cloudy amber orange with a white film for a head.

Smells of bready malt, citrus, and piney hops.

Flavor is of piney and grapefruit hops over a bready malt base.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Decent IPA, pairs okay with food. A bit boring, but nothing bad about it. Not something worth going out of your way to get, but it'll hit the spot if you're at BJ's and want an IPA. The hops and malts balance fine.

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.
