One of my favorite Pales on the market today! Big citrusy nose with some faint biscuity malts in the background. A fantastic session pale. arnold931 (1264) - Iowa, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours light orange. Great aroma. Citrus but not overpowering. Flavor is nice pine. A good good pale ale. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap @ Ironfire. Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is really juicy citrus fruits. Tons of orange and grapefruit as well as pineapple, mango, and melon. Really nice hop flavor, too. Bright citrus notes of grapefruit and orange. Sweet pineapple and mango fruitiness, and melon. A bit of doughy malt and a light bitterness on the finish.

Draft at the brewery taproom - Temecula. Pours clear gold with a moderate, white foam head. Solid beer in every respect. Big, dank citrus abounds with good hits of grapefruit and pee. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with light pine bitterness and further citrusy notes. Outstanding. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2013
pours bright golden orange with a small white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of dank weed, citrus, pine resin, and some light sweet malts. Taste is of fresh citrus juice, pine, freshly cut grass, dank weed and some sweet malts in the background. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, refreshing, juicy finish. overall, a super tasty, refreshing, and drinkable APA that is a great session ale.

A forward-thinking west-coast style pale, I can see why many people think it should be called an IPA. The aroma is pungent and floral with lots of hops. Has a slightly hazy golden color and pours with a big white head. Tastes almost like a single-hop, very pronounced hops and citrus, slight grassy flavor and a dry clean finish. Slightly sticky on the palate, overall a damn fine pale, but for me a little more grain presence would raise this brew to the level of the best pales around. Looking forward to more from Ironfire! bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Gotta love the artwork reminiscent of the old comix. Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours amber/copper with a 3 finger creamy/foamy off-white/beige head. Authentic cat pee aroma. Makes my nostrils itch. Med body or better. Flavor is extremely citrus, followed by some woody? roasted malt. Fits the style but is way out in front on use of ingredients. Comes across hoppy, dry, smooth, mellow, hoppy! Just excellent. SDalkoholic (2431) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared a dense golden pale ale color with a topping of thick white pillow of foam head. Aroma is bold with a lively fragrance of hops that would have fooled me into the notion that this beer was in actuality an IPA style and not the typical smell of a run of the mill boring pale ale. The drink is extremely bitter yet has a touch of sweet and tart like fruit flavors paired with herbal flavors of tea and wild honey. As for the aftertaste, traces of citrus like grapefruit juice as well as metallic and sweaty socks funk fill up the finish. This is truly a knock your socks off type of pale ale which further reminds me that Iron Fire Brewing is the new kid(s) on the block to buy and drink anything new they release. I absolutely love the design on their bottles especially this one with the rolled doobie blazing and some big boobies surrounding the card game. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015

Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is perfectly minerally crisp. Thin malts provide a mild sweetness. Light fresh orange and orange peel. Some grapefruit before a crisp finish. Fresh peel bitter linger. A simple but near perfectly pitched APA, so crisp and fruity and refreshing.
