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.

Tap at Fatherís Office CC. Nose explodes all in my face like Andy Stone - orange juice, grapefruit, light pine, that clean NW ester. Color is a solid orange brown. Then the flavor happens and itís really underwhelming: itís like an orange-flavored tea. No sharpness or bitter hoppiness, just a round, slightly oxidized tea flavor. Now this could be the FOís insistence on serving old-ass beer, or it could be Deschuttesí fault. I am unsure.

Reviewed 11/10/2009 (bottle): Pours a clear light reddish color body, with a good sized off-white color head, very lasting. Smells very hoppy and citrusy. Has a light taste, pale and a little dusty, light hops, and some citrus. Very tasty, refreshing and light.

This is a too mild IPA wise for me. If I was going Deschutes IPA, I would go for Hop Trip. This is a decent if somewhat muted pale ale.

Bottle thanks to Bitbucket
Transparent red-amber with a thin yellow head. Grapefruit, pine, and light toast in the nose. Slightly soapy flavor of sharp citrus, mainly grapefruit, also some grain and burnt sugar. Moderate body, finish is dominated by citrus. Though singular and dominated by grapefruit, the fruit notes are uniquely potent.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Pours orange with light white head. Wow, I love the bitterness of this one. Itís like a Mirror Pond on steroids. Classic West Coast hop aromas and flavors, with more citrus than some of their other pale ales. Strong tea leaves and that common Deschutes trademark flavor of their pale ales. A nice bite with a decent amount of resin in the finish. Very drinkable. I wish i could get it more often.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber with a creamy white head. Ahh the aroma...Iím surprised just how fresh this is from the bottle. Caramel malt, grapefruit, citrus and resiny hops. The flavour is just as good, if not better. Absolutely delicious, just how I like an IPA to be. Very smooth in the mouthfeel and a nice hoppy kick in the finish. Very moreish, a shame there wasnít more to go around.

pours the copper tube ... pretty good foam .. . theres a time limit: bake the cake, bitch! .. . pure pine and light sugary tree bark .. . light-medium in the mouth.. good simple finish.. a sixer was enough for me, not overly complex but good.

Number 150! Nice foamy head sits atop a lightly hazy red-orange. Lemony hops and a little bit of sweetness in the nose. Flavor is dominated by sticky citrus hops, and thereís a pleasant caramel malt note accompanying. Caramel malt + resiny hops = a great combination. A nice smooth palate, and the beer sticks to the mouth on the way down. A nice and easy-drinking IPA.
