A - Pale light golden orange with very minimal head. Looks cool.

S - Delicious hoppiness and citrus malt. Makes me excited to taste. One of the best traditional IPA scents I have had the pleasure to sniff sniff.

T - Citrus and grapefruit. Yep, Solid IPA flavour. More malty than hoppy but a definite bitter finish.

M - Firestone is gaining a reputation with as having very clean mouthfeel. Smooth but crisp.

O - Very good example of a traditional IPA. I'm a Lagunitas guy for IPAs but I would drink this anytime.

One of the best IPAs I have tried. Screw all those malt bomb IPAs, this one is a nice dry, crisp, pale, non-syrupy one. More like a traditional IPA. Again, screw all this trendy 'tons of malt' in an IPA which just ends up in a chaotic, thick, syrup-like mess.

This one is all pine resin and grapefruit. No sweetness or dark syrup. As in a "True IPA"

This IPA is one of the few fit to fly the Union Jack.
