COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prodigiously hopped yet nimbly brewed with pilsner malts, Adversus ultimately achieves the improbable: a big, bold IPA made for summertime sipping. A hard-charging blend of Pacific Northwest hops leads the way, loading the nose with notes of stone fruit, pineapple, mango and earthy pine resin. Meanwhile, the use of traditional pilsner malts adds levity and dryness to the palate, allowing for a refreshing texture through the finish. The result is a double IPA that is high on hop aromas, balanced in bitterness and perfect for the long, warm days of summer.

Firestone doing what they do best, IPAs, and this is one of their better ones. Nice balance of resin and citrus, a dense earthy, bread malt backbone. Courtesy of Andy in 2017.

16 oz can. Pours a hazy glowing gold with an enormous pilowy white head. Lots of lacing. Big scents of pine and citrus. Round big mouthfeel with a deceptive sweet, barnyardy mid-flavor after a hop forward start and a lingering long sour hoppy finish. Super complex but original throughout.

Draught at Canary Square, 8/20/17.
Warm, honey-amber body shows low haze and a beige head atop with moderate retention.
Big, fruity, piney and strongly citrusy hops don't exactly instill elegance and there's a fair dose of caramel-like malt on the back-end to really "rev things up". Resin, dry pineapple, unripe nectarine and strong pine linger on the finish.
In the mouth it's Twang, Bang, Thank You, Mang. So much "sour" hop, sweet malt, huge amounts of bread and resin. Pine and grapefruit for days. Well, at least the first entry in the series was good....

Where most hoppy beers smell of pine this really smells of pineapple and a little sap. Very full body to this and the initial tastes are all hop forward and it appears they selected their hops to throw out a lot of tropical flavors. Pineapple and passion fruit jump right out. The aromas are really awesome on this and take the lead on flavors over the bitterness. It is heavy and one tall boy will sneak up on you quickly! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours a well retained, off white head, with layered lacing, over a clear light gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is pine, resin, light fruits with pineapple, mango tones, mild malts, balance to the hops.......taste is very slightly sweet initially with light floral honey tones, light malts, with slight bread, cracker tones, becoming dry with pine, resin tones, slight fruits, finishing moderately bitter, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium slightly sticky body, slight alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a quite typical example of an American I/DIPA. It is thoroughly enjoyable and utterly drinkable. BJCP 8/3/16/4/8.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Little head. Hot caramel and mango aromas. Soft with dark caramel and mango upfront before turning to overripe pineapple and dry yeast finish.

32oz crowler pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a near white head of foam that leaves behind some thin sheet lacing. The modest aroma offers up honeydew, thin warm cantaloupe, pineapple and juicy smelling pear. Another pull reveals a thin layer of sweet breadiness. The taste delivers bitter pink grapefruit and tangerine flowing quickly into honey drizzled honeydew, warm cantaloupe and pineapple. Toward the finish it picks up a little sweet breadiness that adds another nice facet but the added sweetness doesn't really help matters. Still, pretty tasty offering.

16 oz single can from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Golden to amber colored in appearance with slight haze and a lingering beige head. Hop-forward aroma of pine, citrus zest, spruce, a light herbal spice, a bit of hop resin and a hint of earthiness. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and minimal to light malt sweetness. Medium plus body with a lingering finish. Bold.
