12 oz. bottle to snifter. Pours hazy amber with a soft soapy off white head that dissipates to a spotty film and soapy collar. Aroma has some pine grapefruit and spice and some caramel malt. Taste is all of the above with the hops being bitter and piney with some grapefruit and spice with a malty finish. Palate is medium and finishes chalky dry. Very nice IPA for $5.99 and 6 pk.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a deep amber colored body with a one finger white head. The head lasted a good half minute and leaves some minimal spiderweb lacing. The smell had some hops forward with some pine and malty/bready aspects coming slightly as the beer warms. The taste had a good combination of malts and hops. The palate sat about a medium on the body with nothing harsh on the tongue other than a normal American IPA bitter feel, fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a pretty good beer which is easy on the wallet. Though its nothing to scream about, it gets the job done as far as a decent priced American IPA.

Clear and amber colour with a fat bubbled white head. Very hoppy aroma with citrus and lighter pineapple and pinecones. On the palate it is bitter enough and classicially styled if a tad boring for the style. Decent.

Floral hop aroma and caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt with a sweetish finish and bitter on the sides of the tongue. Full flavored and pretty good. A bit on the malty side, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For the price, this is awesome, not ranking up there with stone and "premium" IPAs, but its pretty close, 6.99 a six, value is a 10 on this, crisp, clean golden color, pretty hoppy but not over the top, nice bitterness and hits you at the end as well....very nice.

Surprise AZ TJ’s bottle marked 10/17/2013 so about 3 months old, not bad. Nice clear bronze color with a medium, khaki head. Big aroma of sprucey hops but almost overpowered by syrupy malt. Balanced flavor, sweet malt with pleasantly bitter hops. Surprisingly quick finish with no real lingering bitterness. Nothing amazing but pretty good considering it cost me $1/bottle...for a Firestone Walker product!

355mL thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Clear orange with lower white foam. Nose is big cheesy, cheesecloth, nutty, nut oil, chlorine, cantaloupe. Taste is dusty, bland, lemon tea, tea bag.
