COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

Muggus69 (1260) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2014
355mL bottle Brewed 19Aug14 Clean copper gold body, holds a dense white head. Nice but somewhat subdued aroma; grass, pine, bitter orange, with a light caramelly, toasted malt note. Full, slick body, nice creamy carbonation, persistent on the palate. Hops come through with a savoury tone on the body; cut grass, dried leafy herbs, pine & cedar, with grapefruit rind combining with toasty malt backbone. Dry finish, sharp bitterness cuts through nicely. Good stuff.

Pours copper with a thick off white head that leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is malt and grapefruit. Has medium carbonation the mouth with a bit of a bitter kick on the back end. Good grapefruit bitterness and a tad sweet and malty. This a nice IPA.

if it only had an over the top nose, as the brewery claims. Deschutes is my favorite place, so for them, this is a miss. i can name off about a dozen ipas of the top of my head that are more flavorful. not bad, just a touch boring. better on tap. 7/10-last batch the best i;ve had in a bottle. juicier. hoppier. fresher? definitely better, more like the tap."

milewide (1565) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Lots of hops, but balanced with malt sweetness and body. Dark Amber color was viewful. Less hop bite than many MI brews.

(Keg at Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala, 20140924) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, herbalness and creamy toffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, fruitiness, creamy toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A well done IPA.

dfearnley (1046) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft to IPA glass Tropical fruit, grapefruit, flowers, biscuit, and pine. Thick translucent rddish amber, with a long lasting creamy and frothy light tan head. Pine, grapefruit, papaya, hops, and a bit of grain. This is classic Deschutes.

Salmoniform (949) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, pine, straw, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a strong hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a really nice shelf IPA.
