COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donít worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Had at Oakland Chop Bar on draft in Oakland, CA. Nice hoppy and piney aroma. Pours nice amber with a nice foam head. Tastes delicious! I am a Sierra Nevada fan and this beer takes the cake. Excellent hoppy balance. I definitely recommend this beer!! Revere Stryker dog!

Bottle, courtesy of my wife... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a bright orange color with a very big head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity with a good little bit of dryer sheets, some citrus & melon. Certainly hop forward, but not over the top.

The flavor is nice, itís a touch sweeter than what I would like in an IPA with a little bit of crystal malt heaviness. That said itís pretty darn hop forward with a nice bit of melon and tropical fruit right up front. The bitterness is towards the moderate to high level that intensifies on the finish.

Pretty decent IPA thatís been redly available to be for, oh maybe a year now that I havenít even given a shot till the last couple days.

Deep orange with off white head! Aroma: lots of danky hops, grass and also caramel in there, fruity, fresh and nice. Taste: nice refreshing hippy taste, grapefruit, citrus and pine. A nice bready malty back is there as well. Really nice, long time ago I had really fresh US IPA :)

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Peachy, mango, grapefruit hops and some mild berry tartness(?). Full-bodied -- round, chewy tropical citrus dominates. Surprisingly low bitterness. Smooth and too too easy to gulp down.

A great offering excpected from a brewery like deschutes. Pouts a copperish amber with a good sized head. Aroma of slight tropical and citrus hops. Some caramel malt on nose. Taste of Caramel that is overpowered by bitter citrus fruit. A lasting bitterness. Nice ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
