For me this DIPA is head of the class so far. The midmouth feel is great and the bitterness, hoppiness, and dryness are perfect. The citrus and fruitiness of this beer linger just long enough before the hopps takeover. Superbly balanced and crafted double IPA

Bomber poured in a Pint glass.

A: pale haze with very little head

S: strong yet sweet with nice hops coming through.

T: sweet hops with a nice finish that challenges you for more

M: thick yet smooth with just enough carbonation.

O: amazing beer that creeps up on you quickly. Always great to share but then you have to buy twice as many.

On tap at Fort Worth Flying Saucer, one week after Firestone Walker's DFW debut. Pours a medium amber, head and lacing average. Smells of tropical fruits, pine, and caramel. Taste is juicy blackberries, peaches, citrus and pine. Alcohol is well hidden and not overly sweet for a DIPA - well balanced. Mouthfeel is medium, sticky finish begs for the next sip. Overall a fantastic DIPA and one that is very welcome in Texas.
