Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass. Bottled on 08/15/2012, reviewed 09/15/2012.

A- Amber-gold body. 1 fingers worth of head full of tiny tight bubbles.

S-Tons of citrus and tropical fruits-Grapefruit, mango, papaya. No alcohol smell at all.

T/M-Bitter up front with tons of hops. The aroma does not lie! Grapefruit, tropical fruits. Malts mellow it out at the end. Very balanced. Not picking up on the alcohol at all.

O-Top notch beer! Very easy drinker for a DIPA. Dangerously good!

Original reviewed 09/15/2012; updating on old "Had" rating.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz into chalice. Dated 7/29/13, so not great.

Really beautiful beer, bright and clear with sticky lace that sits on top.

Smells like the heavy hitting citrus hops, that "candy" aroma that will hit you even when the glass is resting on the table.

Taste matches, instantly made me say "wow". Really nice balance of malts, almost setting a backdrop for the onslaught of hops. Persistent flavor and slight bitter sting.

Crisp and thick.

Such a good beer, only writing this review because I was floored. Bravo Firestone.

From a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: pours a pale amber color with a small head that broke down quickly.

S: Citrus/grapefruit and floral scents are present. Some faint pine.

T: Hops and more hops. There is a citrus taste and the bitterness hit up front, followed by sweet maltiness.

M: medium mouth feel and carbonation.

O: a little hoppier than I usually enjoy, but still an excellent beer. I have to say that I kept expecting it would be too much, but in the end it was just enough. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
