Tap @ The Local. Poured clear honey-gold with a medium-sized white head. Good lacing. Light, crisp citrus hop aroma. Pink grapefruit and lemon and orange zest. Smooth mouthfeel with noticeable carbonation. Dry finish. Lighter tasting, doesn't fall into the "weak DIPA posing as an IPA" category. More bitter than sweet, kind of an English leaning. Slightly metallic and herbal at times. Not over-malted so it doesn't swing into an APA. Good, not great. I'm always more than happy to drink Firehouse's beers over comparable other brewers because a majority of their profits go to charity.
