Pours a golden copper with a grapefruit citrus aroma. Taste is a wonderful balance of strong bitter with medium strong sweet. Bittersweet finish is clean and ends smoothly BlackEyePA (573) - USA - AUG 4, 2012
AWESOME. Well crafted! Masterful! Sweet cereal, hay, bubblegum citrus and caramel comes to the nose. Clean reddish gold color. Taste is amazing sof nw hop thats blended nicely and completely dry hopped to get a freaking great aroma that adds 10 fold to the taste and smell.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 Big, frothy head. Uniquely creamy, with sweet caramel malt and grapefruit notes that tangle with a sweet hop backbone. Creamy mouthfeel, impressive balance throughout the long finish. Sweetness defines this brew but the hops complement it perfectly as it evolves. jeffs515 (123) - Ogden, Utah, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a golden amber with white frothy head that dimishes quick leaving some decent lacing lots of carbonation. Smells citrus hops malt sweet floral. Taste is bitter piny little citrus. Clean palate very nice no aftertaste. Great beer overall.

Poured copper in color, with a medium sized foamy head. Aroma is pine and lemon zest. Taste is well-balanced: You immediately get a tropical fruit sweetness on the tip of your tongue, but the piney hops come in and it finishes dry. This beer grew on me as I drank it.

Bottle . A nice orange amber body with a slightly off-white head that had good retention and nice lace. Aroma had a strong pine hop profile which was complemented by nice citrus notes. Good caramel malt base. Flavor had a good hop presence. Mostly resinous with some grapefruit and even floral notes. Caramel malts were merely a balancing act to sweeten the beer. It was just enough to take a little away from the hops with the hops losing its assertiveness. Dry in the finish. Good! djd07 (14564) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is floral hops and pine. Thin mouthfeel with a light citrus hop and crisp finish. Hides alcohol well, very good IPA from Firestone. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle: Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head, huge citrus aroma, starts and ends very bitter with an orange aftertaste, playful carbonation, medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
355 mL bottle. A real standout in the IPA world. It is a west coaster with the more malty and earthy elements of the traditional IPA. Aroma is brilliantly fresh and citrussy, and the flavour is perfectly balanced. I’d swear someone dropped a little Goldings in there as well. Outstanding. northropfrye (3625) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Reddish colour with off white head. Hoppy aroma, some fruit. Nice sweet malty taste with bitterness.
