I started with smelling this copper in color brew and was pleased with the light hop aroma out of the bottle.

This is a wonderfully balanced IPA with a skew towards a grapefruit and floral bitterness that has spice from the hoppiness. There is some caramel and toasted malts, but the hops are very much there, especially at their peak during the end. The finish comes off very floral and dry, lingering a moment or two of bitterness and perfume.

I want to try their Double Jack double IPA too. The guys said it was very good.

Good job Firestone!

I can't wait to try it on TAP!
