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...

Been wanting to try this brewery for awhile now, finally got my hands on a sixer of this.
Look: nice sunrise with tons of head and good lacing all the way down
Smell: sweet citrus, floral
Taste: extremely balanced, alcohol is well hidden, really wouldent change anything
Mouthfeel: slight carbonation, goes down smooth
Overall: Very delicious and drinkable, could have with plenty of meals, feels like a pregame brew. Would recommend you try. Looking forward for more brews from Firestone Walker.
