COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a smallish but lacing carbonation, aroma is very much citrus hoppy. Caramel sweetness in the malt profile gives way to some nice fruitiness and citrus hop flavors. Finish is decidedly bitter and lingering. I liked this new IPA and would have it again.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2006
Beer is dark amber in color, hazy with lots of tiny particles, and has an average-sized, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head.<P>Aroma is malty with light notes of cookie and caramel; prominently hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, a trace of something herbal-skunky; yeasty with a light note of bread dough; trace notes of floral honey and tea.<P>The flavor is heavily bitter, moderately sweet with a long, heavily bitter, grippy, lightly sweet, lightly astringent finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Ernest (6319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2006
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Hope ya like pine sap...thatís about all youíll be smelling. Very harsh in the mouth experience, as portended by the nose. Drain pour for me. No imagination went into this one, it would seem...arenít there already enough of these bludgeon-o-west-coast-hops beers?

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 30, 2006
12oz. bottle. Dark orange-yellow with a tall offwhite head. Honey, passionfruit, and mellow citrus hoppy aromatics. Medicinal bitterness coinsides with a buttery caramel malt flavor. Medicinal resinous bitter character lingers over a grassy hop finish. Mouthfeel is medium, fairly dry.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2006
Pours tawnied honey with very little froth. Ample residual effers. Aroma of lime rind. Medium nectar weight. Flavors start with crisp asprin and citrus followed up with diluted caramel, then goes back to citrus followed by the long strict asprin finish. This is much more aggresive than the previously released Quail Springs IPA. Overall : Iím digginí it. Highly recommended.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
Draft. Copper colored pour with a wispy white head. Citrusy aroma thatís a bit over powered by grass notes. The flavor is very grassy to me with little malt presence.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Tap. Hazy amber w light beige head & good lace. Aroma & flavor are malty, piney, w grapefruit & a decent hop presence. Somewhat sweet, medium bodied. This brew for me was rather generic, starchy & homogonized. It did not possess a clean refreshing mouthfeel. OK I guess but I will add it to my no (all) Deschutes list. 4/23/07 on cask at Moontime. Not all that bad. 3.5 is my rate of it. I even bought a 6er today on sale for $6.99. iím upping this to 3.6 Iíve become accustomed to having it in the fridge at the expence of Full Sail IPA.

jake65 (2711) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a dark amber ale color with an ample tan/amber head. Aroma is citrus filled and a bit sweet. Taste is full of citrus, mainly grapefruit, caramels, and hoppiness. Finish is clean with a distinct citrus feel and a dry sweet/sour taste.

[Bottle]
A great IPA that is easy drinkable and not going to curl your toes with the hops. The hops added made this a very drinkable hoppy beer. A golden yellow color with a think head this had a great aroma and the balance was not to far off the hops did over power but in a IPA they have to. Good Beer.
