This beer pours a nice golden color with s 2 finger white head. The retention is average, and there's a bit of lacing on the glass as the head leaves.
The nose is quite nice in the hops department. Quite citrusy. Grapefruit, pineapple.
Taste - is an IPA. The hops really dominate with the citrus more up front and the pine taste on the backside.
Feel - Decent bodied, and the hops do linger in my throat.
Yes, this is a decent IPA.

Another nice looking beer with a fair head and no lacing. Has a good hop aroma. Taste is nice. Has a slight fruit and hop bitterness. It’s a pleasure going down. Overall I’ve had better but I am definitely a Firestone Walker fan. On draft at Ron’s Corner Tavern.

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.
