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.

Serving type: bottle

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....
