A roller coaster of deliciousness. One of the DIPAs in the world.

L - Clear and dark gold

S - Huge hop blast...classic west coast DIPA

T - A blast of pine, citrus, and orange hop goodness. Then it blows you away with the malty dry balanced finish. You expect the hop bitterness to linger in the end but doesn't. Perfection on both ends.

F - Medium body with nice carbonation

O - My favorite DIPA and one of the best beers you can get year round

Nearly perfect DIPA. Very very good. Extremely balanced. Smells of pine and a bit of grass. Looks delicious, amber-gold with nice beautiful white foam which lingers for a while, leaving a subtle lacing. Taste is amazing, the best part of this IPA. Starts slow with a sweet, syrupy feeling malt which transforms into a bitter punch with a slight burning alcohol background. A bit of a carbonated, prickly mouth-feel that's slightly oily and thick, yet feels a bit watery at the same time. Complex. Taste lingers for a good long while, where the grassy pine takes over and leaves a bitter, pleasant taste on the back of the tongue.

Overall, nearly perfect IPA. Must-try. Would be hard-pressed to pick between this and The Calling, from Boulevard. So I'll take them both :)

Quite possibly one of the best IPA's or DIPA's I have had. The is nice beer that pours a nice golden color and had a nice white creamy head to it. The aroma of sweet hops fills the glass. The taste is smooth and hoppy and a bit sweet and the 9.5% ABV can only be detected by the warming sensation in your belly. The mouthfeel is super smooth for an IPA. It is a really great beer! Can't say enough about this. I have had many of the Firestone Walker beers, this may be my new favorite!

L- Liquid gold.

S- Intense citrus aroma.

T- Orange juice, pine, grapefruit, some bitterness and a sweet malt finish almost caramely.

F- Nice medium body and good carbonation.

O- one of my favorite DIPAs! Especially the whole 4 pack thing.

I just wish it was a little bit more bitter. Other than that, this thing is pure perfection.
