IPA have been my favorite for about 3 years now. When I first started drinking microbrews I gradually moved toward brews with more hops until I found my first IPA. Wow, it was intense! I still have a special place in my heart for them, and this one is my favorite of those I have had.

I first tried this beer at the Oregon Brewfest in 2010 and I fell in love. For me it is the perfect IPA. Nice hop aroma and extremely smooth well-balanced taste. Drinking this on draft gives me a beergasm every time and it’s hard for me to stop drinking it once I start. Purely delicious.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear golden color with thin white head. Great aroma of citrus hops. Tastes like it smells. Very refreshing, perfectly balanced IPA. This is a dangerously easy beer to drink. My favorite IPA. Another classic from the west coast.

A homerun. Awesome IPA. Nice good fruity taste and smooth finish. Great beer on a 113 degree day.

This may be the cleanest most perfect hop forward and balanced beer. The aroma on a fresh bottle like I had last night is top notch! Definitely a treat and something I go to whenever possible!

This may be my favorite IPA yet! appearance is a crystal clear yellowish gold color. one finger of white head, dissipates moderately. Aroma is AMAZING! lots and lots of citrus, i get pineapple, grapefruit, candied tropical fruit, pine notes, and a balance of light caramel malts. the tastes is very similar to the aroma, citrus & tropical bomb!! pineapple, grapefruit, pine, spruce, light caramel malt, and a hint of alcohol. the finish has a slight citrus and pine flavor that lingers. overall, this is an exceptional west coast style IPA that i will seek out and buy!

West Coast IPA style, bottled a few weeks before my consumption, fresh and bright taste. Definitely another great brew from Firestone Walker, a perfect IPA.
