This beer is perfect, there's nothing else to say.

-On tap at Sage in the Aria Hotel in Vegas, waiter came back telling me I would have to wait 5-10 minutes due to the bar having to tap a fresh keg since it must have cashed out. Served in a proper tulip glass, black beer with a 2 finger tan thick head, beautiful beer, especially in the glass.

A. Gorgeous, baloon style tupil with a 2 finger tan, thicker head. Pitch black.

S. Firestone's IPA smell. Nose was like an excellent IPA, extremely fresh with citrus and grapefruit yet darker malt body, hint of bread, very fulfilling beautiful smell. I mean this beer's nose was absolutely wonderful.

T. 10/10. One of my few. Up there with Sucks, RuinTen, Enjoy By...this beer is delicious. It's a black IPA with so much of a west coast style IPA flavor, yet it's bready and somewhat malty, there is very little/no rye at all, at least not on draft..and i'm not a fan of very rye flavored IPA's. It's so hoppy yet creamy yet smooth yet malty yet delicious. Alcohol is seriously hidden...after 3 sips it was my favorite beer, I ordered 2. And this is at the Aria in Vegas, $8-$9 bucks a pint..seek this out, it is absolutely phenomenal.

M. Creamy, smooth, hoppy, drinkable, delicious.

O. 10/10, find it. I was skeptical being a IPA/DIPA/Black IPA drinker yet i'm not a fan of belgian style/yeasty/rye IPA's... this beer is not that. It is like Stone's sublimely black IPA mixed with FW Double Jack. It is creamy and smooth and drinkable and I almost would think it was a regular DIPA from a blind test. The rye/bread is well hidden, as well as the alcohol...this is a wonderful beer, best I have had on draft aside Celebration..seek it out bottle or draft, you won't be disappointed..

Hats off to Firestone, well done.
