Pours an orange/amber color with a nice creamy off white head. Smells of citrus, grapefruit, pine and spice. Flavor is fruity and sweet with grapefruit and some spice and slight bitterness to it. It is the smooth and light and sweet.

Pours a medium caramel with sizable beige head. Excellent lacing retention throughout. Great aroma of pine, and heavy with citrus. Great taste with a bit of malt presence. Finishes fairly dry. Excellent new offering from Deschutes - PROST!

A really excellent, everyday kind of IPA (if not quite sessionable). Sometimes I think of different IPA styles in terms of different citrus fruit: this is clearly an orange, due to the strong caramel malt flavor, which balances the resiny piney hops beautifully. Not quite the heights of the best IIPAs, but for the abv and the price it is hard to beat. Great with spicy food.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear medium amber with two fingers of light tan head, excellent retention, moderate chunky lacing lacing. (4/5) Nose is resiny pine, juicy citrus and tropical fruit, mild caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is mild to moderate sweet, moderate bitterness. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, balanced bitter finish. (4/5)
Nice go-to IPA - fresh and juicy, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, decent body and finish. Might not be the absolute best IPA out there, but pretty impossible to beat at the price. (15/20)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is very hoppy, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is a bit more citrusy, orange zest, lemon and a bit of malt sweetness on the back end. Wood/earth malts. Let this one warm up a bit and I still wasnít impressed. Body seems a bit thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ar: Sweet pine, VERY slight resinous citrus and mild caramel.
Ap: Solid amber color, very full color, slightly opaque but no floaties. Average head, slight cream color to the bubbles.
T: Pine first and dominant with citrus hints (and only hints), hops not overly bitter but pleasant. Definite malt and caramel aftertaste (4 month old bottles) with slight hop dryness.
P: Average carb but slightly thick/resinous for an IPA. Mellowed cloying malt on the tongue, not as bright as I prefer (especially with moderate 6%) but with average bitterness and drying.
O: Average IPA. Not as punchy and bright as I might really like.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at a pizza place in Tahoe. Pours a nice amber color. Smell is faint pine and citrus, more delicate than Iím used to. The taste more than makes up for this; Tropical fruit, pine, and an aftertaste that gradually turns sweet as it lingers. Very smooth and crisp, extremely refreshing. Lives up to its name and Iíd definitely have it on tap again.
