From botle dated 02/19/16. Once I got this under the nose I remember it as the first Firestone Walker I ever yried. I told the rep I was not big on IPAs but he put it up regardless.

My first question was "what part of the grapefruit goes in here". His answer was "none". All the big, big gapefruit nose & ase comes frm the hops. This was the moment that I realized what a wide range of tastes were available. As a chef, I was astounded. That was some 10 waes ago.

I have come to appreciate the pleasure that hops can impart when applied with the right approach.

All that comes rushing back as I put this glass to my lips.

IMOFirestone Walker is one of, if not THE finest brewers in te US today & if here are any doubts, track this down & see what I'm talking about.

As a frequent visitor to Firestone Brewery in Buellton, I have yet to be disappointed with the outcome of this beer! A well-balanced IPA with excellent taste and a full nostril filling smell of hops! Has the traditional golden look and the feel of it going down is oh so pleasing. If you happen to visit the brewery and eat there, It pairs well with their ribs and or any burgers that Firestone Brewery servesāœŒ
