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...
