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

A cloudy amber with an off-white colored head. Iím not a fan of IPA but this one isnít bad for an IPA. Thats still not saying much.

Bottle from Matt and served in a standard pint glass: Clean deep amber hue with frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of leafy and resiny hops, wintergreen and pine, caramel and butterscotch, grapefruit and apricot esters. The taste is a a tad sweet but very balance in the end with resiny piney citric hops to the rescue. The mild spice and leafy finish is quite nice. Yep, I get some wintergreen on the palate too, strange but neato! The mouth feel is smooth for the genre, not aggressive or biting but dry and metallic upon the finish. Honestly this is probably better cold but I ended up liking it.

Hazy amber with off white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a touch of grass. Hoppy start and finish but the malt base down th emiddle is a little lacking. Good but not great.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Great IPA with an almost caramel malt taste. Tastes a little heavy--almost imperial (and the 6.8% ABV reflects that). It looks absolutely beautiful--deep amber with an everlasting pillowy head and great lacing.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Thanks to Terminus for picking this up for me. Pours amber / bronze with a creamy tan head. The aroma has caramel, butterscotch, cream diacetyl and light hops. Medium body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste starts with rich malt and caramel. The finish is all oxidation. The condition I had it in was probably not the best. I will gladly rerate when / if I get a fresh bottle. (5/3/5/3/11 -2.7)

Deschutes finally came to MO, so got to try this fresh. Not favorite IPA, but certainly better than the first time I tried it. Appearance is the same. The aroma has lots of smooth caramel malt, toffee and bread. there is a touch of earthy hops, but Iíd expect more for an IPA. Body was about the same, but carbonation more pronounced. The flavor starts much hoppier than the aroma. The aroma traits are still there, but thee is a piny/earthiness along with grapefruit. The finish has English style maltiness and NW style resiny hoppiness. Nice IPA overall.

A fairly standard ipa in many ways. Another solid deschutes beer. Small head, hops are perhaps slightly underprounced.

Pours a hazy orangy amber color with a medium white head. The aroma has nice spicy and resinous hops, the malt presence annouces that it wonít let the hops steal the whole show in the mouth. As advertised thereís a good flavor of spicy, resinous hops, the hops are well balance by a stout malt backbone, it finishes bitter. This IPA doesnít have anything special but itís pleasant and easy to drink. Thanks Goldorak!

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle - Poured a cloudy darkish amber in color with an almost non-existent white head and fairly low carbonation. Aroma is medium of citrus/grapefruit hops and has a sweet malty "cast" to it. Flavor is also medium of hops and quite bitter. Some malty sweetness also present. Finish is clean and the bitterness lasts for a while. A decent IPA, but far from the best that I have had. Well worth having again...

Standard. Clean, crisp, nothing special. Can be cheap though - which does have virtues.
