Poured into a glass from bottle.

A - Golden, orange-copper color. Very appealing. Pours a thin white head.

S - Smells outstanding, very fresh. Notes of citrus, pine, a bit floral.

T - Excellent IPA taste, not too bitter despite high ABV. Perfect amount of hop bitterness. Citrus/Pine notes. Very flavorful and balanced.

F- Not too bitter on tongue, not highly carbonated. Feels great and refreshing when it hits the back of the mouth and tongue.

Outstanding beer, one of the better Double IPAs out there. Not too overwhelming, very balanced and flavorful but still a high ABV and IPA taste for the hop-lovers there. Love Firestone!

Color- sunset gold. Medium head.

Aroma- crisp with sharp grapefruit notes and hint of pine sap.

Taste- An excellent SoCal IPA! Starts hoppy and floral refreshing citrus throughout finishing with a Sorrento lemon and hint of pine.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 4/6/2013.
