Beer Tasting: BJ's HopStorm IPA

Updated on August 29, 2014


An American-style India Pale Ale with six different kinds of hops. A balance between hops and a smooth Ale. Medium in color. An earthy, but sweet smell. Taste include earthy, grapefruit, bitterness, and wood like features. A good, strong and balanced beer for any hop lover out there.

Food pairing

I combined BJ's HopStorm with their delicious spicy Jambalaya. Any types of spicy food goes great with this brew as the abundance of hops and pinch of sweetness helps balance out the spiciness, but keep the bold flavor of the jambalaya.

Added comments

The beer was great and can also be a great additive to any catching up time with friends or family. The only down side I had with the beer was the high intensity of the bitterness it supplied. I recommend only having one or two or your stomach will feel rather full and sour at the same time. Other than that the beer was a wonderful addition to the Jambalaya and a strong one at that.
