WOW! Pours a beautiful amber with an off white head that sticks around. I upgraded the appearance to a five while typing. Aroma is wonderful! Simple, fresh, and clean. Caramel malt, spruce hops, doughy yeast, with some light vanilla. One of the most balanced IPA’s I have ever tasted. Palate is sublime:medium body, slick feel, lively, with a lingering bitter. A superior entry into a crowded field. Mother f@#king Deschutes in the house!

Scent is outstanding. Tangerines/satsuma. The taste is heavy in the mouth compared to the scent. Deep amber color. Hops isn’t heavy. Tap

Pours a clear amber with a medium sized white head leaving some lace. Aroma is floral, tropical fruit, citrus, and some moderately sweet pale malts. Flavour is citrus, floral, tropical fruit, earthy, medium easy drinking bitterness, mild sweet maltiness rounded off by slight lingering of the hops and a moderately dry finish.

Bottle from Ty. Nose is a bit flowery and sweet. Sweet burst up front with apricot and citrus rind. Floral notes come thru to spice it up but sweetness dampers it well. Overall pretty tasty but not elite.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a gorgeous copper with a small but lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of citrus, mango, peach, guava and flowers. Taste is juicy tropical fruits at the front underlined by a touch of biscuit sweetness. Grapefruit and lemon zest bitterness in the mid palate with hints of pine and pepper. Lingering spicy finish with a fresh fruity aftertaste. Enjoyed this a lot.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber with a thick frothy head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is very fruity. Apricot, white grape and only mild citrus. Taste brings out more malt than expected, mild bitterness with a decent finish. Has a slight oily texture and is very smooth. Overall not bad. I expected a bit more from this but perhaps I received an older bottle. Will re-review with a different batch.

12oz bottle into pint glass. 1" slightly off white head is fairly slow to disappear. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, primarily notes of citrus. Very light yeasty notes. Appearance is clear and golden. Taste is very lightly sweet with a light to medium bitterness. The beer is light bodied with a thin texture. Average carbonation. Long lightly bitter finish. Crisp refreshing beer, good for the warmer weather. One of my favorite IPAs
