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.

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. It’s 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...I’m 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 wasn’t 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 there’s 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.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Roy’s Waikoloa- Big Island- - bottle. Paired with pork-belly mac and cheese (really good). Beer pours dark copper with a citrus hop aroma. First taste is awesome- like a barleywine with sweet malts up-front, some caramel, delicate sweetness, not overpowering at all. Then a terrific bitter hop profile follows- grapefruit primarily. Finish is crisp, clean, not at all sweet. This beer has great balance, malts and hops work perfectly together. Excellent.

neepsntatties (1300) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2009
On cask at the Deschutes Portland location. Colour... amber-brown, no head. Nose... mild hops, spent grain. Palate... moderately tangy hops, slightly biscuity, rather uneventful.

On tap at Portland Brewpub. Pours honey colored, with a cream head and some lace. Aromas of citrus and malt. Taste is fresh with a nice round bitterness.

djd07 (5177) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a medium creamy white head that lasts awhile leaving good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is strong floral hop with bubblegum and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a piney grapfruit flavor with a dry finish. Easy to drink, a good IPA from Deschutes.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 15, 2009
12 oz bottle. Clear copper/orange with a small off white head. Aroma is citrus, pine and sugary sweet caramel. The flavor is bitter up front with a sweetness that fades in and then finishes bitter. Medium body with average carbonation and a long dry finish. Great easy drinking IPA, the alcohol is well hidden. After a few this one can sneek up on you.
