This is a pretty good beer. I think Firestone in general produces great beers. Think one has your typical IPA type hoppy smell and taste. Not that it's generic but it just didn't stand out as much as i thought it would. I still put the Wookey Jack over it.. Still with that being said Thumbs up.

Pours a crisp amber color with moderate head and lacing. Aroma has strong pine and citrus. Taste starts with lemon and piney hops, and moves into a nice malt presence with notes of caramel, honey, and sage. One of the smoother mouthfeels for a DIPA..

This is damn nearly perfection in a glass. Pours a clear golden body with decent white head and pretty/steady stream of bubbles casting themselves upward. Aromas are very complex, encompassing everything from tropical fruit to floral to grassy to caramel to honey. Taste is sweet and caramel-like upfront, before yielding to pineapple fruit and bubblegum, with a good amount of yeast and florals here and there. F inishes like a compost pile of grass clippings and day-old orange peels. Nicely carbonated body keeps it all alive and aloft. This beer is a seriously happenin' one and done.

A pours a clear copper / orange with good clarity. Puffy finger of white head that clears out to a wispy cloud in the middle of the snifter. Leaves spotty lace after each swirl.

S - Citrus hops, grapefruit, orange peel, pine, malts, floral, perfume.

T - Nice hop bill - citrus, piney, resinous. Malts blend nicely and smooth this one out, caramel, sugar. Nice crisp and clean finish.

O - Really solid DIPA - easy to quaff back. I would get this again in a heartbeat if it was more readily available.

Notes - part of my wifes score from Binny's in Schaumberg.

A: Light golden color with a 1 1/2 finger white head. The head has nice retention and a uniform look to it.

S: Citrus scents like pineapple and some tropical fruits.

T: Medium bitter up front. I am not getting anything following the bitter - I was really expecting citrus or fruit flavors.

M: The right level of carbonation but the slow tug of a dry bitter beer.

O: I am getting only one note - bitter. I was hoping for something that hit on multiple flavors and notes. There is no bitter aftertaste - which is a plus. I don't think I would repeat this one.
