Nice malty backbone. Citrusy biscuity flavor. Not bitter. Combination of citra and mosaic hops is awesome. Very balanced. This is a winner.

Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af strand, melon. Superlækker. Smagen er også god. Fin moderne bitterhed som ikke dominerer. Klart den bedste øl jeg fik i LA. Clean og crisp.

Glad Deschutes decided to make this available year round. Copper color with piney aroma with subtle hints of toffee. Resin flavors dominate. Full bodied, almost creamy mouth.

Cannot stop lauding this beer. Deschutes has brought us an excellent example of how an IPA should be. Fresh, vibrant, and easy to get into. I’ve lost count of the number of people who "hate" IPAs but still love this.

Fantastically bright and smooth. Lots of floral and citrus notes. Medium to light body beguiles depth of flavor. Finishes well and leaves drinker wanting another.

Bottle poured in glass. Pours a copper color with creamy head. Aroma is a nice hop balance with citrus, pine notes and slight sweet malts balancing it out. Taste is great as well, with juicy citrus hops up front and a bit of earthiness. There is a light malt sweetness. Overall, this is a great beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear rust orange pour. Cotton candy, fruit cocktail in syrup, pixie dust candy aroma; the elements of bright hops are fully present and doused in sugar. When the veil of total chill is lifted, canned green beans and buttered bread are the prominent, ghastly features.
Gummy bear, tropical juice flavor with plain sugar and buttery caramel; there is so much sweetness, and so little desirable malt flavor. The slick, slightly acerbic or berry like sweetness of crystal malt is all there really is under the weirdly heavy sunshine of all the hops.
The body is effervescent and medium in texture, breaking down quickly at the finish. Unbalanced in unpredictable ways, this hop-candy beer is downright confusing.

It’s OK. I just don’t like high ABV IPA’s, the malt backbone just seems too thick--too thick for something without roasted malt.

12oz bottle. Filtered orange-gold body. Foamy, patchy off-white head. Clean, but thicker malt body than most beers that employ citra and mosaic. That said, the body is sort of neutuered and cleansed...a tad lifeless. Good in some basic respects, but a little bit mundane. Juicy hops are nice, but not as pronounced as you might hope. I wouldn’t get another sixpack of this.
