Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass. Bottled on 08/15/2012, reviewed 09/15/2012.

A- Amber-gold body. 1 fingers worth of head full of tiny tight bubbles.

S-Tons of citrus and tropical fruits-Grapefruit, mango, papaya. No alcohol smell at all.

T/M-Bitter up front with tons of hops. The aroma does not lie! Grapefruit, tropical fruits. Malts mellow it out at the end. Very balanced. Not picking up on the alcohol at all.

O-Top notch beer! Very easy drinker for a DIPA. Dangerously good!

Original reviewed 09/15/2012; updating on old "Had" rating.

L - honey Amber, not at all cloudy, but not translucent either
S - pine hits the nose, then malt sweetness
T - pine, malt, citrus for me is feint - I get a touch of honey - but I'm probably mistaking.lbit for something else as it has t been noted by other reviewers
F - good carbonation - though not entirely visible, bitter finish with alcohol bite
O - I've had so many New England style IPAs lately, it's great to have something with a some malt and bite

Poured from 12oz into chalice. Dated 7/29/13, so not great.

Really beautiful beer, bright and clear with sticky lace that sits on top.

Smells like the heavy hitting citrus hops, that "candy" aroma that will hit you even when the glass is resting on the table.

Taste matches, instantly made me say "wow". Really nice balance of malts, almost setting a backdrop for the onslaught of hops. Persistent flavor and slight bitter sting.

Crisp and thick.

Such a good beer, only writing this review because I was floored. Bravo Firestone.
