3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh gain, sweet maltiness, and citrus for aroma. Mildly bitter, overkill on the caramel as usual, a decent IPA.

Bottle (12oz): golden color with small white head. Citrus and more citrus light to medium body. Sweet with just a little bitterness in the end. Tasty and will try again.

Not a citrus as I remember. It has a nice nose and golden appearance. Still over all a good beer, lots of hops.

2014 bottle at iL Lazzarone's. A nice dark golden copper color with a half finger of cream colored head. Smells is dank hops, mango, orange, lemon, grass. Sweet honey sweetness with some grassy citrus bitter, orange juice, a little caramel malt but more of the fruit like flavors and the bitter sticks around but not obnoxiously. Good flavorful interesting IPA. Definitely feel the fresh squeezed lemonade, orange juice.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: clear orangey gold, with two fingers of persistently thick, frothy light beige head and generous, sticky lacing. Aroma: very aromatic, lots of grapefruit and blood orange, light pineapple and marmalade; generous malt nose as well, with graham crackers, nilla wafers, and honey. Taste: extremely fruity, with lots of orange and lemon zest, kafir lime and a huge dose of pineapple juice; malts are very restrained, limited to some light whole wheat toast with honey butter. Finish: dry and surprisingly clean, with a lingering light bitterness that fades quickly. Notes: Wow. Expected a much more bitter beer, based on the big fruity hop aromas. However, it was actually on the sweeter side, but not from the malts. Very juicy, very tropical, and the bitterness came through as more of a dry note at the finish. This is a dangerously drinkable IPA that doesn’t molest you with a million IBUs. This allows the generous, fruity hops to really shine through with that unexpected sweetness. Just wow.

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.
