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.

Bottled 3/07/13

The beer comes out looking golden orange with a fluffy white head that leaves some sticky lacing.

The aroma comes with sweet fruity hop with orange, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine. Some more piney hops.

Great smooth medium bodied beer. Dry with a lingering bitterness. Big fruity hop flavor of orange and pineapple and the resinous pine.

Oh man this is a great IPA. Just bought a single to sample it. It’s time for a sixer.

on draft at mekong in Richmond, snifter.

dark copper color with a very nice head. smell is amazingly hoppy with piney hop goodness. taste is super fresh hops..piney..nice bitter finish. maybe the perfect normal IPA. almost full bodied but easy drinking.

overall just a world class IPA. never pass this up if its fresh!
