3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Post Falls, ID. Aroma is all grapefruit, all the time. Pours clear golden with a large white head with good retention, leaving lace. Taste is bittersweet and citrusy, finishing with a lingering, but not severe, bitterness. Body is thin--to style--finely carbonated. Nice and well-crafted.

My only two arguments against this beer is: A) a tad hazy. B) It is not produced year round. This beer is by far the best session IPA on the market. Nothing comes close.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold into a snifter. Bright white soapy head recedes to mottle surface. Tangerine and caramel aromas. Dry with caramel and slightly metallic tropical fruit upfront turning to citrus in the lasting finish.

I’m little and I need to be coherent to brew beer and do business, so this is the perfect ale for me and I thoroughly enjoy it. I am able to drink it easily and have a few at its low %. The flavors achieved at 4.5% only enforce my confidence in Firestone. The aroma says IPA, and even the flavor says the same, but the % says "just kidding." If you are a fan of Hops and drinkability those are the 2 words I’d combine to explain this brew.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
12oz bottle -
Aroma - tropical fruit aroma, dank hops, grassy and herbaceous. No noticeable malt aromas around....right on.
Appearance - clear body, gold in color, 2" white head, medium retention
Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation, almost feels like a pilsner
Flavor - tropical flavors on the palate, piney power, bready with a clean bitter finish
Overall - high marks for Firestone making a phenomenal 1/2 an IPA, or a APA 1.5..whatever. Affordable, it delivers the hops you’d expect from Firestone, zero flaws, super tasty...damn fine.
