A stunning American IPA. This bomber was purchased at the brewery in November, a visit I’d highly recommend!

Pours a clear and oily amber, with limited white head, but good retention on the little that exists. Brilliant aroma of grapefruit and piney citrus, with a mild toffee backbone. Those caramelized malts are present in the start of the taste and support a nice body, but hops totally takeover after the first microsecond. Citrus, tropical fruit and all the wonder associated with "west coast" varietals. Finishes with a biting bitterness that lingers for an impressive length of time, and only a hint of the 7.5% ABV warmth at the very end.

Thank-you Firestone Walker - a brewery whose products I'd seek out again wherever possible.
