A nice big robust IPA that is quite dry on the palate. Poured a little frothy but this blew off quickly. zoucrew102 (1880) - - OCT 8, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 12/14/14: Bomber. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with light grass and pine notes. Pours clear golden colored with a large soapy white head and very little lacing. Starts with smooth grapefruit and orange citrus with hints of tropical fruit. Finishes dry with light grass and pine hop bitterness, but still quite smooth. Nice IPA.
10/8/12: Strong hoppy aroma. Amber colored with not much head. Smooth with citrus notes to start before the hops take over. Hoppy to finish, but not overpowering. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to my parents. Mildly hazy orange / gold color, with a very nice mostly white head, leaving good, thick lace. Very nice piney, orange aroma, light caramel malt. Kind of resiny. clight sweetness, medium bitterness. Good, smooth lighter carbonation, with a dry finish, medium body. A lot of hype behind this brewery. Their IPA is definitely above average, in my opinion - meets the hyped-up expectation. Very enjoyable. timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
This right here is a real solid, well balanced, delectable IPA. It feels IPA-tastic - medium/bodied and slightly chewy. The nose is of both ripe grapefruit sweetness and bitterness, pretty malty, pine/spruce. Very bitter, yummy. Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
22oz. bomber. Bright amber pour with an average-ish sort of head that disappears kind of quickly and leaves just a ring of lace. Fairly resinous on the nose with some deep citrus character. Some unrefined grain as well. Very resinous on the palate as well. The unrefined grain aspect isn’t present at all. More citrus takes its place. Solid bitterness in the finish.

Very hoppy but gets easier to drink as you go. Grapefruit citrus and hops. An extremely good beer. o_Merlin_o (225) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Awesome hops aroma! First sip I strangely taste strawberry? Beautiful flavoring. Awesome ruby oak coloring. BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Tap at brewdog. Pale amber with white head. Aroma of mango, orange and pine. Taste has lots of orange and mandarins, little mango, slightly resinous. Perfect bitterness, pleasant on the tongue. Good ipa rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Smelled great, tasted great. This was my first Firestone Walker brew and I had assumed it would be overly bitter (as a "balanced, west coast IPA" is usually an oxymoron). In fact, it was extremely well balanced. I usually like to drink my IPAs with food to give my tongue something other than bitter hops to think about, but I’d drink this one alone. Well done FW.. I only wish you distributed to CT! teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours a copper color with a medium sized head and good lacing. Nice aroma with citrus hops and pine. Well-balanced and smooth. This is a tasty IPA.
