Solid IPA. Got a nice bite to it, smells freaking awesome, ok head, good looking brew. Leaves an excellent lace. First try of Firestone. Picked up a six-pack of this which means I have 5 more delicious beers, good idea me. Hope they all are this good.

Pours a golden amber with lively carbonation and a medium white head. Sticky spots of lacing down the glass. Smell is nice with spicy, earthy hops up front. Some tropical fruits and sweet scents. Pineapple with a little caramel. Taste showcases more hops. Some grapefruit, orange, and pine. The malt reinforcement is there but lets the hops show through, simply providing an underlying sweetness. Great mouth feel and despite ABV, it's a very easy beer to drink. Well-crafted and a solid all around beer. A standard of what true sessionable hoppy beer should be like.

Every time we drive down to Santa Barbara we have to stop at the Firestone Walker Brewing Co. brewery and have a few of these - and a Red Nectar. Perfectly balance of hops and malt and mouthfeel and overall just a really nice, somewhat 7.5%, "session" beer. The brewery dudes are cool too. Always a good time at this place when drinking these.
