Firestone Walker Double IPA

Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
Paso Robles, CA

Grade: A-
ABV: 9.5%
Style: Double IPA
Serve in: Snifter, tulip

Excuse the cruddy picture. I was drinking in bed and only had my blurry cell camera.

The fact that this double IPA isn’t too overly citrus-y or overly piney, plus it’s lack of bitterness makes me really dig it. Though it does become slightly tame for the style, it makes up for that with its approachable nature. Full of tropical flavors like pineapple and papaya, Double Jack is sweet, but keeps itself contained. Really the perfect balance of sweetness, bready malts as well as a savory greenish/kale thing going on.
