3.89/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A - Pours a golden clear color with a white head. Nice lacing and good carbonation.
S - The aroma is probably the best part of this beer. I get some grass, herbs, grapefruit and some orange peel. Very refreshing
T - Kind of dissapointed on the taste. Is too watery but i can identify some citrusy fruits, grapefruit, orange peel and some tangerine.
M - The mouthfeel is light, as it warms up it becomes a little more creamy. Good beer for a warm day.
O - Good refreshing beer but for me not like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Torpedo. I could give it a shot again but under different environment in a warm saturday right after lunch.

This is the most balanced APA I have had. For me, SNPA sets the style, and is a huge favorite of mine, so very pleased to see this has a similar profile, owing to the cascade hops for certain.
I prefer the malt flavor of this a bit more, less Munich I believe than SNPA, this is a wonderful beer, great everyday drinker.

3.79/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Nice shade of gold with good head that sticks around. Very good lacing and plenty of carbonation.
Smell: Grass, herbs, citrus, and malts.
Taste: Grass, citrus, herbs and malts.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, crisp and refreshing, with a bitter hop aftertaste.
The Verdict: Very good. About as hoppy as a pale ale could get without crossing into IPA category, and much hoppier than a lot of cheap offbrand IPAs without their nasty bitterness. Another winning brew from Firestone.
Serving type: on-tap
