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.
