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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 8, 2007
In the bottle from Total Beverage Denver. Pours dark amber with a large off-white and yellowish head consisting of huge foam bubbles. Has a deep aroma of pine-like hops. The strong bitterness with a solid malt backbone really stands out in this beer. It has a long lingering bite on the tongue. Delicious.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Poured a copper-amber hue with a medium-sized white head. Big hops araoma that lingered. Light and crisp while being very refreshing and quaffable. Resinous warming finish. Glad this one took over for Quail Springs IPA.

Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Pours a light amber. Massive sweet citrus on the nose. Taste of sweet malt swept by light hops. Finish is very nice with mild hops.

SpringsLicker (3450) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one. Creamy off-white head over a cloudy orange/amber body. Fragrant hops, light fruit aroma. A nice dry finish follows a smoothly bittered yet solidly malted start.

fiulijn (19096) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit resiny. Medium mouthfeel, with some good malt and caramel, some sweetness, well balanced (and more) by the bitterness, some resins. Good IPA (American), but straight, without special interest.

CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours light brown with close head. Aroma is faintly chemical and a tobacco-like whiff. Straight bitter is predominant flavor with some orange, caramel and honey. This last note detracts. Palate is average, unremarkable. A good beer if you are in the mood for bitter.

Suttree (6070) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Orange with white head. Vary piney, hop aroma, but with significant grapefruit notes, too. Hop pretty uch dominate the aroma. Flavor has a few smoky notes, and a little bit of earthy, caramel flavors, but is really diominated by big piney and citrusy hops, with a long, sticky aftertaste.

highibus (795) - Vail, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Pours a clear copper color. Head disapates fairly quickly, but good lacing. Sweet and spicy aroma. Medium body but good flavor on all parts of the tongue. Did not rate this beer initially, but I thought it used to have yeast suspended in it. I wish it still did. Good west coast IPA.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a white head on top. Aroma is cut right down the middle with grapefruit and citrus hops teamed against caramel malts. Flavor is citrusy with sweet caramel malts coming in to balance it out. On the palate the high alcohol content is fairly hidden, the beer finishes bittersweet. Another good beer from Deschutes. I would love to visit the brewery sometime in the near future.
