Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, only a few weeks old, this is an outstanding seasonal from Deschutes, Itís bright citrus fruit and floral hop character against a subtle malt backbone. Not what I would consider complex, just very drinkable, with a nice slightly bitter aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
You canít go wrong with a good IPA and therefore you canít go wrong with this. It pours up a nice red orange with a medium-bubbled head and splotches of lace. Its noise is of floral hoops along with some preach and pineapple. This is nice and dry which emphasizes the grapefruit-like bitterness in the finish. Itís texture is quite creamy with vigorous but gentle carbonation. Definitely, this will hit the spot for any hophead who knows her stuff.

Poured a nice copper color with a nice white head. Very overpowering citrus in the nose . The taste was very bitter and not to balanced with malts. I think it could have been a little more carbonated.

Great IPA with lots of hops flavor not super bitter. There is definitely fruity flavors with a lot of hop oil resin coating your tongue.

Tap at Saucer. Pours a clear reddish orange color with a foamy white head. Aroma is super sweet, hoppy, sappy fruit. Flavor is fruity, bland, light hops with a bland finish. Boring.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with ample bone white head. Excellent clarity and decent lace. Mostly tropical nose, pungent mango, light peach, and faint ripe blueberry. Flavor is similar, mango, papaya, strawberry, blueberry, peach, lightly buttery biscuit sweetness, mildly bitter, resiny finish. Another ipa thatís all about hop flavor over hop bitterness (my preference). Awesome stuff.
