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.)

This beer has a very nice amber color and a very foamy head. has a flowery aroma, it smells great. At first its a little sweet and the aftertaste is slightly bitter, lots of flavor to this beer.

demitriustown (1134) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2015
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice pungent hop note, juicy grapefruit, and a very light malt presence. Appearance is a light amber with a thick white head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste has got a bitter hop upfront with a nice grapefruit note with a light malt characteristic. Palate has got a nice hop texture all the way through. Overall, Decent stuff. Cheers!

rosenbergh (8564) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Draught at the Firestone Walker Barrelworks, Buellton, CA as Firestone Walker Hammersmith IPA.
Clear deep golden colour with a small off-white head. Fruity and piney hops and sweet caramel malt in the aroma. Sweet darkish fruity hops and dryish malt in the flavour. Tasty.

beerbaaron (1681) - Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2015
Attractive clear radiant ambery orange. Small off white head. I worry maybe this is past its prime, as it does not have the expected hoppiness, so I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt. Plenty malty. Fruity. Citrus. Pine. Earth. Caramel. Medium body. Moderate bitterness. Fair dryness. A little sticky

screigh (511) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a clear copper color. Nice sized white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Earthy hop aroma with a hint of caramel. A spicy floral hop flavor that turns into a sweet earthy malt flavor.

paintedmaple (543) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2015
Tap...very mellow, but well balanced and tasty IPA with a honey like (hence the name?) taste that was very appealing. Hops were floral and subdued making for a nice change of pace experience in an IPA.

kambei70 (781) - - MAR 15, 2015
2014 bottle. Pours a hazy golden copper with a white head. Aroma is like brewing wort, clean crystal malt with a touch of caramel. Taste is a nice clean malt bill with a little sweetness and some caramel. A very pleasant floral bitterness. Mouthfeel is a tad chalky at the very end and a little aspiriny. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours amber gold with a nice, creamy persistent head. Aroma is some citrus and some floral. Flavor follows with nice floral and a strong malt backbone. Sweetish, but dry on the finish. This is a nice IPA, and #200 for me.
