COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is created from a base of Pale and Crystal malts and is aggressively hopped throughout the brewing process with a final hop addition in the conditioning vessel. A beautiful flowery hop aroma will greet you as you dive into this hop lover’s dream. A middle caramel malt presence balances high hop bitterness with hop flavor end to end... learn to love hops! (Editor’s Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company under the name "Humboldt IPA Nectar" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

Billed as FW Taproom IPA on nitro in Paso. Pours a creamy golden with big nitro head. Aroma of pineapple, apple, grass, pine and candy. Taste is a bit of a let down. Some good pine but dry and nothing special.

jsmerig (1199) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a dark orange that's slightly hazy. Aroma is citrus orange with a peppery spice note. Taste is malt-forward with a grapefruit bitterness this lingers and gets stronger as the malt notes fade. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
