A very clear light amber color. It has a decent amount of head .

The aroma has a punch of citrus peel, orange, pine, a big sweet caramel malt and breadiness.

The flavor hits of grapefruit and floral throughout with a medium bitterness. There's a bready malt backbone, with a bitterness of orange and grapefruit peel on the back. The finish has a gentle pine needle, leaving a medium lingering bitterness.

Pours a nice orangy color, pretty clear, with nice modest head. It's a great looking beer, no complaints there. Smell is modest hoppiness with a touch of booze. The taste is a little better, but still, the hops just don't come through the way you'd expect in a well thought of west coast ipa. There's a bit of citrus and bit of skunkiness, but I can really taste the malt and yeast and there's a touch of booze to it, which I don't like. It has nice body. Overall, it's a perfectly fine beer. I enjoyed it, but was a bit dissapointed. The hops were just lacking in my opinion. With no freshness date on the bottle, it's possible I got an old one and I'll re-evaluate if I have it again and am more favorably impressed.

Great job, Firestone Walker. This beautiful golden brown beer satisfies. A citrusy-grassy aroma and a good prolonged hop flavor and finish make this one of my favorites. It is crisp on the palate but too much that it become too light. I believe it was brewed just the right amount of time and bottled right on time.
