look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Golden color with a good head and generous lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit and tangerine, pine, malts.

Taste: Grapefruit and tangerine, pine, malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp. Strong bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. Incredibly well balanced, it’s full of fresh citrus flavor. I need to spend more time visiting my friends in Buellton just so I have a reason to hang out at the Firestone brewery.

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!
