Bottled on 5/17

A clear bright golden orange. Some lacing, 1 finger head. Looks good

S pine, malt and some tropical juice. smells really good. Impressive how nice this smells considering this bottle is over 4 months old

T huge huge hop bitterness then awesome pine and malt. Bitter bitter aftertaste this thing is amazing and again this baby is old. Reminds me a lot of sculpin.

M malty and low carbonation. Smooth and delicious.

O This was excellent. Epic bitterness and great IIPA flavors. I realize Firestone claims their beers are best within 120 of the born on date but I'm still impressed how well this has held up, still I'd love to try this really fresh

Bottom line: An excellent example of a west coast IIPA which apparently holds up very well over time

651mL and various examples on tap. Pours a clear amber with a very thin, yellow, dense head with fair retention but sticky, webby, white lace. Aroma is pineapple, fruity/tropical hops, caramel malt, lemon, sweet candies, sweet cherries, passionfruit, incredible amount of fruit juice tropical notes. Taste brings very sticky sweet malt as the base with some serous alcohol presence. Big fruity tropical hops with an oily mouthfeel. No cloying. No newspaper. No nutty, nut skin bitterness. Fairly soft and easy to love. Nice. Pretty solid, fresh, DIPA.
