This beer pours a simple gold with a large head. The aroma is slightly sweet with a classic mix of grapefruit flesh and peel, pine, tangerine, kiwi, pineapple, and a touch of caramel. The flavor is starts sweet with pine, pink grapefruit flesh and peel, tangerine, pineapple, kiwi, mango, and a rich caramel at the end. the mouthfeel is fairly full with soft, sudsy carbonation. Overall this is a great, classic IPA. Bitter, sweet, and flavored like citrus and pine. So glad this finally made it to our area.

Pours crystal clear honey amber with a thin white cap that leaves great lacing. Aroma is a blend of tropical and citrus fruits. The flavor is oranges and mangos with some bitter hop bite in the finish. Feel is fresh and crisp. Very nice.

-deep amber tap pour with a 2 cm foam cap. The aroma a more malt than hop. The flavors are of a moderate biscuit malt body and a pine and grapefruit hop bite. The body is full, overall a pretty good West Coast IPA example.

Overall I like this beer but feel it could be bit bigger in taste and smell especially for a 7.0 ABV. Prolly the beer I like best from Firestone Walker.

Trade extra - pushing 3 months old on arrival. Meh.

A nice biscuit-y aroma. Flavor is pure tree sape. Feel is highly carbonated and dry. Overall, I'm a bitter west coast IPA guy but this just isn't doing it for me.

Crystal clear, orange with a fluffy off white head. Great lacing and the head clings to the edges of the glass. Fruity and piney aroma with some sweet caramel notes. Nice medium to light body with moderate carbonation. Quite a tasty beer.
