Drank in tulip glass poured from bomber. Aroma - light citrus notes. Nothing overwhelming. Appearamce - golden auburn. Little darker than most ipas. Taste - very fresh with just the right amount of bittering hops. Very drinkable. Palate - good with a bit more bitter to it. Overall - good IPA. Very smooth but not out of the ordinary

Pours a nice polished prehistoric amber. Not much aroma, but vague vapors of citrus. Weak flavor, but searches of tropical mango.

Bomber pours a clear orange/copper color with moderate white head and a little lacing. Aroma is the strong point: lots of tropical fruits, citrus, and pine resin. Taste is bitter with sweet toffee malts coming out in the middle before a clean hoppy finish. Body is medium with light carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and wish that it had lasted longer. Iíll gladly seek out this one again.

This is an IPA that leaves room for all the sweet and fruity tastes to mix with the bitter and tangy ones. No segregation here!

Coppery hues with a dense white foamy head. Nose of orange peals and biscuits. Very piney and tangy withe a long bitter twang. This is my first experience with the mosaic hops, and I think they may be overpowering the citra. Overall, this is a real nice drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Sunset coppery hue with a long lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of mango, dragon fruit, grapefruit, dank resiny hops and some clove esters. Along with biscuity and caramel malts as well. The flavor profile is quite fruity , quite dank and quite metallic. Expect no mercy from the brew. The mouth feel is sharp and aggressive. Quite nice but I could do with a little less dank and more classic herbal bitterness.

Wow! Good stuff, here. Pours a deep copper-orange with middling, quickly-dissipating head. Aroma is full of fruit and hops. Flavor has a strong, bitter happiness, with a healthy infusion of fruit (mango) and just a touch of malt sweetness. Nicely resinous, with full-bodied mouthfeel. Outstanding.

Glad to see Deschutes continuing to branch out, and Iíll take anything with a bunch of citra! Deep orange color, beige head. Citrus hops dominate, with pine behind, and a really lovely malt profile that just pokes through toward the finish. Hop-forward, full-bodied with an acerbic after -- this is really nice. Could drink this all night long.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 At Taphouse Seattle. Amber pour with one finger head. Citrus fruit aroma. Flavor is citrus hops and some extra mango juice flavor. Easy drinking.
Rerate from a fresh bottle from Dak. Thanks! Pours a deep copper orange red color with a. Fluffy, creamy, somewhat off white two finger head. Big juicy mango and pine aroma. A nice bitter presence goes along with the tropical fruit sweetness. Big time grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. The cotta really brings out a nice fresh flavor from the mosaic here and it just works. Slick mouthfel with lowish carbonation for the style. Excellent IPA.
