This is a solid pale ale. Medium head and a nice hoppy aroma even if its a little thin on body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from State Line. Dark straw pour with 1-finger white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, some caramel malts, and tropical fruit. Tastes of caramel malt and fruit up front, with mid-palate hops and citrus, all very well balanced. I could see this becoming a summer session beer for me.

Had on tap in California. Nothing really special about this beer. Thought the Double Barrell really made this one seem week and with little taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry! Thank you! Pale yellow pour with medium white froth fading to a thin white ring. Good malted base aroma with mild pine hops and a boost of sugars. Decent hoppy flavour profile with sugared malt sweetness to balance. SLightly thin and watery finish. But would be very good for sessions. Glad I got to try it. Thanks Harry!

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a small white head. Yeasty orange hops in the aroma and touch of sweetness. Light, fruity, yeasty hop flavour and some cereal and metal notes. A simple and plain APA. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber gold with a small white head.Very nice hop aroma with a lemony touch. Very nice bitter lemon taste, interesting contrast between the sour and bitterness, utilizing two out of the fours types of taste buds. I think this one has been underrated; it is better much better than the other Firestones I’ve tried.
