bottle date 1/3/14 may contribute heavily to this rating

very good clarity

excellent nose

low head

poor taste but the hops still hits you in the mouth right up front.

hops are low after that probably due to age.

need to try a fresher one to get a better clue of what this beer is about.

from their site: 4+lbs/BBL: Bittering—Warrior, Columbus; Late Kettle—Cascade, Centennial; Dry Hops—Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe .

I wanted this but the age, ugh!

Appearance - A nice copper and orange hue with trace of cloud-white head. Lacing down the glass is not abundant, but quite noticeable.

Smell - True to style IIPA with huge bouquet of floral hop notes. The sweetness of the pale malts only accentuates the bitters by giving a nice background. There is no question this brew was triple dry-hopped.

Taste - Awesome up front sweet and bitterness evidenced in the aromas now take the stage, not so much of a citrus IPA and plays to a more earthy robustness, mid-mouth grains and barley flavors while the back end holds on to the alpha acids and alcohol heat.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, maltose lingers on the tongue

Overall - Another solid brew from Firestone Walker. This is clearly not a standard IPA which allows it to be quaffed without any food pairings needed.

Appearance- a nice caramel color with a white head

Smell- is pine, floral, and good malts

Taste- this is pretty much everything that I look for in an IPA..pine, dank hops, grapefruit, tangerine, good Carmel sweetness. Has a good finishing bite

Mouthfeel-creamy and drinkable.

Overall- definitely one of my favorite DIPAs I've had so far. Pretty much everything I'm looking for in a beer of this style.
