Bottled on 10/23/14. About a week over 2 months old.

Appearance- Clear golden, orange, amber color. About one inch of head produced.

Aroma- Muted aroma, but from what I can tell there is a grapefruit/citrus/pine combo along with some malty sweetness.

Taste- Hit of bitterness upfront with grapefruit and citrus hop flavors being the most noticeable. Caramel malts add a touch of sweetness at the beginning that help balance things out and help transition to some sweeter fruit hop flavors like pineapple and mango. Finish has a juicy citrus flavor along with a super dry malt that leaves some lingering bitterness.

Feel- Low to Medium carbonation, very dry and bitter, and medium-full bodied.

Overall- A great DIPA for sure, but not as amazing as I used to think it was. Really nice array of hop flavors throughout this, but the malt can be a bit too dry in the finish at times, almost to the point of astringency. Not quite a world class beer for me, but its definitely great and well worth future purchases.

This beer is following an Inversion IPA from Deschutes which was slightly cloying and unimpressive.

DBLJACK:

The nose is phenomenal. Sweet resin, light fruit, and a strong pine are the notes.
Tastes incredibly balanced. Very light and not cloying. Some lingering bitterness.
Light. PtY from 2013 may be a bit lighter.
Well done Firestone. The price of the bottle (8%) is worth the beer.

A must try.
