In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Firestone Walker Brewing Co Hopnosis

“A beautiful bright gold in color; fluffy white head lingers. Nose has notes of toasted pine, citrus, blackberries, light black pepper. Citrus and pine intermingle in a balanced dance in aroma and flavor. Sappy pine doesn’t linger; moderate-plus bitterness fades into melon and marmalade. An almost pillowy mouthfeel really works well with these softer hop flavors, balanced by assertive bitterness. Nicely balanced finish, with a slight sweetness that leaves the tongue quickly and has you coming back for more. Really well executed.”
