From 12oz bottle into Sprecher nonic. Bottled on date: 11/4/13 (60 days old). Appearance is orange-amber with one-finger ivory head that lasts a while before settling to a ring and islands. Lacing in dots and rings all the way down. Aroma is grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, and resin hoppiness plus some alcohol and a minisucle touch of bread. Taste is citrus rind bitter up front, a touch of sweet tropical fruit juice and bread comes through briefly, then the bitterness returns on the swallow but fades abruptly. Medium bodied, slightly creamy, soft carbonation adds to that texture, abrupt bitter finish.

Another fine beer by Firestone Walker! I really like this IPA. It is very hoppy up front and has a lot of spicy character that you would expect. The smell is of piney, floral, and citrus hops. It has a very nice kick at 7.5% but it blends in in well for a nice taste. I would rate this as one of the better IPA's.

One of the few IPAs that comes close to O'dells...just barely misses it. In the Bottle, I sometimes am tempted to put it at the same level as O'dells, because it has such a Brilliant Citrus/pine balance but it's still just SLIGHTLY too sweet for my normal preference unless I'm in the mood for a sweeter IPA. On tap, it very frequently suffers from being even sweeter and thus too sweet for a hopheads preference who will often go with Stone or O'dell because of it. The other downside is that its priced at least 1 or 2 dollars more than the average IPA. It deserves it, but still...
