4.2/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a nice clean amber pour with 1/2" of cream colored head, nice retention, patchy lacing. smells of fresh hops, pine, grapefruit, caramel, more pine! very sweet smell combined with hops is making me thirsty!
a delicious grapefruit taste up front, sweet yet very bitter, earthy hop notes, a slight hint of garlic (warrior hops?).. this bottle is a month old or so, i have a feeling it got a lot sweeter than is intended but i like it this way. a nice malty backbone makes this beer very drinkable.
medium body, low carbonation, slight creamy feel on the lips.
overall this is a nice beer. my first time drinking a firestone walker beer, and i feel like i've made a good choice. i don't feel it justifies the price tag on it ($2.50 a bottle is a bit steep when everything else i eyed up was $1 cheaper), but i'm glad i picked it up to at least try it. i've had better ipa's, but this one IS tasty, so i'm not gonna give it a low rating - i'd like to check out some of their offerings.. been sitting on a bottle of sucaba and parabola.. i'll have to drink them soon.
