Pours a honey orange with a 2 finger thick white foam head. Smells of orange blossom, citrus, light pine. Sweet orange and pine, sweet malts. Medium/light carbonation, aftertaste of sweet and spicy pine. Outstanding beer from beginning to end.

I am a big fan of double IPAs, but I was not a big fan of this beer. Surprisingly, Firestone Walker managed to outpace the considerable malt bill with an extreme hop bitterness that made me think of a slightly rotten lemon sitting in a dank basement. That's too far, of course, but compared to other double IPAs I have enjoyed, this was not even in the top twenty. Perhaps it has to do with the attenuation of the yeast, but there was not enough malt sweetness to counterbalance the hops in this monster.
