Has a fantastic hop aroma, great color, flavor starts with a caramel malt flavor transitions to floral hops and finishes with a nice crisp bitterness.

Pours a dark orange color with amber side tones. The aroma is like fresh crushed hops... resiny, cirtusy and beautiful. The flavors are a blast of bitter hops, balanced modestly with a caramel malt backbone. The hops really do dominate the flavor profile with grapefruit and pine. Really the best IPA I’ve had in a long time.

Pucker up buttercup cause this is a hopheads dream. I don’t care what the description says, I didnt detect any malt aroma or taste. The only thing I wasn’t thrilled about was the dedication to the grapefruit northwest hops, man oh man, by the end it got too much for me.

Draught at Todd English Pub in Las Vegas. Amber to orange colour with an even layer of white foam that leaves good lacing on the glass. Great flavour with a big hop punch that lingers and leaves a big hoppy aftertaste.

Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Hop forward, very little malt sweetness. The hop profile leans towards citrus, plenty of grapefruit, oranges, some pine. Finishes clean and crisp with a powerful hop blast. Excellent.

Wittales (884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Appearance was hazy golden with rocky 2 finger white head and lacing. Aromas are sweet malts upfront that gives way to citrusy piney herbal hops.Alot of hops used in this brew. Taste sweetnees of malts then the power of the hops, all types of beautiful hops flavored there. Palate was smooth creamy carbonation with balanced meduim body of a average length hoppy finish. A work of art...

On tap at the dive bar for beer week. Aroma is pretty typical for a pale ale. Flavour is more on the hoppy side. This is a really good pale, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Firestone Walker.
