4.21/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Pours some very light white head. the beer itself is a beautiful and clear gold. Very little head upon pouring though.

Smell:
Grapefruit hops.

Taste:
Heavy hop. I get a grapefruit flavor and light sweet malts. The hops obviously take center stage with a very domineering presence over the malts.

Mouthfeel:
Medium to heavy bodied with very little carbonation.

Overall:
A pretty decent DIPA and one I recommend getting.

golden, transparent; little head....
smells like it's gonna be all hops on this one... it's a dipa....
tastes.... like a dipa. not my favorite style, but i can do this. strong grapefruit rind all the way around. i still argue that the ipa/dipa are covers to hide the abv. cant beat the high abv here!!!
feel is... calm and smooth. soft on the palate.
overall.... as i said, it's not my favorite style, and there are a couple of Firestone brews i have tried and did not impress me, but this is decent. it is smooth and i can appreciate the style. i can certainly appreciate the abv! even though i still maintain many brewers use the excess hops to mask the abv. nice brew; i will try a few of the others....

4.39/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, 10 weeks old.

A golden shade of amber in color with a frothy head that leaves a fat lace ring in its wake. Looks damn good. Big, bold citrus and tropical fruit aromas wafting out of the glass. Grapefruit and pineapple are the primary aromatics, with an undercurrent of resin.

Spicy hop notes smack the palate around. Amidst the puckering bitterness, you can taste the same fruit notes that came through in the aroma. Mouthfeel is oily with a fine, prickly carbonation. Malt sweetness is reigned in capably by all the hop flavors, and alcohol is felt but not easily detectable by the taste buds.

Similar in aroma and flavor profile to DFH 90 Minute but more skillfully crafted. Another Firestone Walker beer that I can enthusiastically recommend.
