Good professional levels of clarity going on here. Yellow pour, 1/2" white head. Aroma smacks of some Cascade. I dig the old school vibes.

Taste, its fairly standard, mostly toasted pale malts and 2 row. The hopping gives the beer a near 50 ibu level bitterness, and it leaves that nice mild grapefruit feel like you took the Delorean back to 1998. Its highly carbonated, light bodied and hoppy. I can dig it man.
One of the better selections at BJs.

Tasted on tap at the Albuquerque location. Bright orange color. Crystal clear with lots of bubbles. Strong piney/earthy hops aroma. Strong West Coast hops flavors, no malt to balance. No yeast or alcohol notes. Light body, spritzy carbonation. Hops bitterness higher than expected but it works.

(Draft revisited, Foster City CA) much better tasting than previous revisits. Has been many years since this was one of my go-to pales. Overall pretty balanced between hops and malts.
