Gold pour with thick white foam; great lacing. Toffee/BB Bat candy aroma. Malt forward with solid hop flavor to follow. Medium lite mouthfeel. I thought this was hair better than Sculpin.

One of my top 5 favorite IPAs. I'm fortunate enough to love less then 2 hours from the brewery and let me tell you, if you ever get the chance to visit, do it. The brewery is gorgeous not to mention an awesome restaurant next door. They always have some sort of a special treat on draft. Overall, amazing beer. Amazing brewery. Keep it up Firestone.
