4.16/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz cold bottle into pint glass

Appearance - Yellow and fizzy, if it wasn't for the good head retention and lacing one could mistake this for BMC junk. This look is pretty much par for the style though, so not too bad.

Smell - Clean...nice fresh, slightly sweet fruity/piney hop blast, kind of getting that dank/fusel thing going on

Feel/Taste - Light body as expected, gentle scrubbing carb suits it perfectly, very refreshing. Taste follows suit with the nose with immediate tropical/stone fruit burst, citrus, and piney hop goodness. Trails off with some light biscuity malt and moderate bitterness.

Overall - This is one of only two "session" IPAs I've truly enjoyed, the other being Stone Go-To. This is very similar, with ample, delicious hops and a nice, light malt backbone. Like all good beers, it's well balanced. I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of the style at all, but this is a well-crafted brew for what it is, and I'd never turn one down.

4.48/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A nice crisp taste with a bit of hops. Somewhat of an aftertaste but nothing invasive. Its one of those IPAs to be careful with though - very smooth and can get your a bit tipsy quickly if you keep drinking them. I'm a huge fan of Firestone IPAs and would strongly suggest this one as one to have for a nice hot summer day.
