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.

Pours a light golden color with a ridiculous, frothy head that does not want to go away and leaves thick lacing the entire way down the glass Aroma is delicate hops with a stale hop aroma Flavor is a burst of stale full leaf hops with a slight resinous aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel holds resinous aftertaste on tongue.

Big grape fruity nose with a carmelly malt background . Pine resins with a crystal malt balance. Big MSG T to balance a butt load of C level hops.. Cascades.. Centennials etc. bread like yeast character. Overall a bug hoppy, and well balanced ipa that is definitely among my favourites.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
A ruddy clear amber color, good carbonation, with beautiful dense, substantial white head. Clean rain fresh aroma along with the traditional citrus. An above average citrus hop bite with a lasting finish. Well balanced yet the bitterness is dominant and pleasant. Distinctive yet drinkable.

GREAT IPA! I'd heard that Deschutes made great IPAs; this was my first. Really almost a perfect IPA if you ask me. Hits all the notes I want in the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice big fluffy off white head on a golden syrup coppery coloured beer. Very strong sweet malt aroma, honey, caramel, citrus and pine. Good full mouthfeel, good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Chewy apricot, passionfruit and grapefruit sweetness. A good pine resin bite, with great caramels and toasted bread malt. The finish is nice and bitter, citrusy finish and creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
