I was completely blown away by the Double Jack, so picking this one up was a no brainer.
A - Pours a very transparent light copper gold with a two finger off white foamy head. The head seems fairly sticky with good retention. Plenty of carbonation evident in the beer
S - Extremely hoppy aroma with citrus dominance, mainly grapefruit and lime. There is also plenty of sweet bready malt and a piney finish.
T - Very sweet and biscuity with a good blend of citrus and pine hops. There is a tart tasting and slightly bitter hop profile. You get some pine needle taste and plenty of citrus hop taste to balance it, sort of a cross between west and east coast styles. A little boozy and dry in the finish but very fresh tasting with plenty of hops, that's what I want in an IPA.
M - Creamy and full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. A bit sticky and coating on the lips.
O - Extremely solid IPA that blends the best aspects of east and west coast styles. Hoppy, fresh, and plenty of bang for your buck. I will be trying everything I can find from Firestone Walker, they're 2-2.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer
A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely
S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.
T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing
O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.

Poured a two month-old 12 oz bottle into a willi glass. It's a clear gold with slight orange color and a one finger tight head and minimal lacing. Beautiful floral and citrus notes on the aroma with just a touch of dank. Taste is of citrus, particularly orange, and malty sweetness, followed by a hint of dank. Mouth is perfect for the style. Overall, this is a great IPA. I wish I could get it easier where I'm at.
