12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear gold with a nice white head and swarms of tine bubbles going from the bottom up. Tempting.
Clean hoppy nose, light fruitiness, glass, floral, perfumy, light malt.
Fresh malt flavors, hop fruitiness (citrus peel), med-hi bitterness.
Perfect carbonation, light-med body, somewhat creamy, balanced with a pleasant bitter finish. Highly sessionable. Cool.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance was clear yellow gold with diminishing white 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet pale malts, citrus fruits, grain,clean yeast profile. Taste was sweet pale grain malt backbone with lemon, pine, grapefruit hops playing mildly. Palate was smooth soft CO2 with meduim body, then mild lasting hoppy finish. Wonderful Pale with just enough hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into dollar store tulip. Clear golden yellow with thin head. Some flowery hops but very mild. Crisp and slightly sweet...not your usual Firestone. A little too watery / mild for an APA...good but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught pours a cloudy orange brown with white head. Floral, hay and citrus aromas are present. Taste is a bit underwhelming, with no real flavor outstanding. An ok beer, but not the best.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 From tap. Large perfume of west coast hops. Orange zest and fresh cut grass. Very inviting. Taste is hemp, orange meat, and basic makes. Somewhat eatery on the palate.

12 oz. from Chuck’s. I thought this was going to be meh, but it’s fantastic. Leave it to Firestone to turn out excellent well-crafted session beers. Had no idea I was so late to the party.

a super pale ale. This is a standard bearer for the APA style. Slightly bitter, nice hoppy aroma, one of my favorite APA’s

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. I was told this was an IPA by the incompetent server, so will try to adjust my rating accordingly. Initially I was thinking this was one weak effort. But given the PA category, it’s OK, decent, but still far too bland for my tastes. Pours light amber with some floral hop aroma, but rather subtle. Crisp finish with some carbonation. A light, I suppose, refreshing but overall bland and boring pale ale in my opinion.
