4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deschutes never fails to impress me. This is a delightful IPA with a citrus aroma and a bright taste of orange and lemon. Excellent mouthfeel and the finish is long and bitter. Well done!

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Appearance - dark cloudy orange.
Aroma - mild hops. Not as fragrant as others.
Mouthfeel - mild bite from the carbs. Lingering hop taste.
Taste - citrus hops. Nice and fresh tasting. Lacks the pine and wood flavor of other IPAs but is nice. Seems slightly maltier than others but might be but not s familiar with the hops in this.
Overall - pretty nice. I like citra hops. Very drinkable. I like this. Less in your face than others like Enjoy By. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, best by 11/23/13… I dig the date stamp, thank you! Pours a bold amber with about an inch of creamy beige head. Great retention and lots of sticky lacing. Pine and light citrus hops in the nose, but the maltiness emerges as it warms. It doesn’t scream fresh hops. However, that changes at first sip. Really flavorful citrus and pine, lighter in the florals. The level of bitterness is just right and the flavor of the hops is really noticeable. Malts are there, but definitely in the background. Lightly bready, but again the flavor of the hops come forward. Really good stuff, I could drink this a lot and not grow tired of it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The look is clear, decent eggshell colored head, and copper in color. The smell is hops, fruits, tropical fruit mix, pear, and nice. The taste is a medium nice bitterness, hops, really fruity from pear to grapefruits, touch of sweetness but really solid.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Pours a clear red color, fluffy white head. Aroma is huge grapefruit, tons of citrus, some floral. not much malt characteristics. Taste is resiny bitterness, kind of a soapy taste that I’m not too fond of, but it is very slight. good carbonation, not as good as I remembered it being last year

Cloudy orange. Bursting with orange juice and pineapple aromas. Taste is chewy and juicy like orange juice. A touch of tangerines and kiwi. Astringent finish bit over all, very good
