COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like fresh powder, itís a seize-the-moment thing. At harvest, we rush Goschie Farmsí Cascade hops fresh from vine to kettle. Not any Cascades, mind you, but an heirloom strain, from a single field, restored from the original rhizome. Hope youíre as hopped up as we are.

Pours a pale straw white with minimal head. Apple and lemon nose. Tart bitter vinous apple pear taste. Bitter very dry finish. Very little sweetness. These hop aromas and flavors really surprised me. This could almost pass for a dry white wine. Very different.

Pours pale yellow with some golden hues. Head is one finger and holding. Nose is straw, citrus and light pine with corn syrup. Taste is sweet with a decent hop presence but a little underwhelming to be honest. Mouthfeel is sticky, body is medium and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Appearance was clear pale gold with creamy white lasting 3 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are lemon, pineapple, pine with sweet pale 2-row malt. Taste are sweet malt backbone then the zesty fruits come to play. Lemon, pineapple, tanergine, pine and grapefruit are wonderful with hints of resin. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with meduim body, then average length resinous fruity smooth finish. A real gem...

22 oz - Lemony nose, honey and apple on the palate. A little fizzy, but I really thought this would have rated better.

Fresh aroma of citrus and earth. Large head with very nice lacing and retention. Very pale color. Flavor is a little weak at first, and palate a little watery, but it finishes well with the typical Deschutes banana malt backing and a good IPA hop kick. I donít understand why this is rated as lowly as it is - itís quite a solid IPA.

Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear, very pale yellow hued body with a large and creamy white head. Aromas are citrusy, grassy, herbaceous and dank. Very weed like with some fruity notes that seem like hops, but could be mild yeast esters. Low malt. Flavors are of brown sugar flambeed grapefruit. Fresh citrus. zesty, grassy, and pungent with a delicate malt bill. Not much to dislike. I am surprised by the ratings and notes from other friends. Some pineapple, light bready malt. Clean, hoppy, pleasant. Lively bubbles, a light cornbread and grapefruit character. Medium, although slightly medicinal bitterness. Balance is near neutral with a nod to bitterness. Lively bubbles and dry. Pretty solid and better than I was lead to believe.

Reid (1803) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2012
22 oz bottle from Rothís Vista Market in Salem OR. $5.99 Golden yellow colour..lighter than most IPAs . Quarter inch white frothy head. Maybe i am imagining things because of the golden colour but this smell like a pilsner..grassy hop and slight toast to the malt. Tase is fresh grassy hop with a bit of lingering bitterness..bold malt backing..again this could be a hoppy pils! Actually liked the mouthfeel.. invigorating, bubbly and fresh! A very strange IPA..i liked it but weird stuff!

Bomber. Pours a straw color with a small head and nice lacing. Aroma is malty and some citrus, not your typical IPA hops. Flavor is floral, citrus and pine. This just doesnít represent and IPA, more a pale ale. Not much in the finish. Not a bad beer, just expecting more from a Deschutes IPA.

On tap at capitol beer. Has a sweet flavor with a slight bittering finish. This beer is really sweet for an IPA.
