look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with two fingers of creamy tan head.

Smell - roasted malts, hint of rye malts, cocoa, citrus/piney hops, hint of pine resin.

Taste - Hit right away with the roasted malts and hint of rye malts followed by the cocoa,citrus/piney hops, and pine resin.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness from the piney hops.

Overall - For my first offering from Firestone, they deliver a solid Cascadian. The aroma could of been a little more pronounced with the hops as I found it to be more malt dominated. Other than that, a solid Cascadian and am glad to have finally tried a Firestone offering.

Dark almost black color from a draft pour. 3 fingers of head. Dissipated quickly. Strong hop aroma. Mild and balanced in the mouth. Loads of roasted malts, citrus, some rye definitely. Little bitterness but hidden. Very complex and well done. Very different. If you like ipa and stout, this tastes like a good marriage of both.
