look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Purchased a 6pk at Wegmans in Warrington, PA
Served and enjoyed in a standard pint glass
A - Pours a clear, golden-honey color. A decent one-two finger, foamy head on the initial pour. Good amount of lacing left after drinking.
S - Massive aroma of pine and citrus. Very inviting.
T - The initial sip hits you with tons of citrus and pine taste. The beer has a nice, slightly malty sweetness to balance out the hoppiness. The hops are not overpowering but do leave a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well balanced and highly drinkable. The alcohol is well disguised.
M - Medium consistency. Good carbonation.
O - This one ranks as one of the better IPAs I've had. My first Firestone Walker beer and I was impressed. Not sure if the price is normal for this beer but it is a bit on the pricier side so I'm not sure how often I'll buy this but it is really tasty. Recommended.

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.

4.45/5 rDev +5%

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.
