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.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2009
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 (5285) - 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.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
A: Poured with a beautiful large, white head, that exhibited excellent lacing in clumps and spiderweb patterns on the sides of the glass. Body is hazy and a perfect orange/red color... beautiful to look at. S: Very nice aroma of heavy hops with pine, lemon and lime throughout. There’s also a hint of sweetness in the form of the malt (caramel, maybe?) that offers a slight tilt away from all hops. T: Wow... a perfect balance of sweetness and hoppiness for an IPA, meaning that it is slightly sweet at the beginning, but ends with a high amount of hops and citrus for a nice, long duration. M: Great on the palate as well, with a medium-full body, creamy texture, and average-soft carbonation. D: One of my favorite IPAs... after doing a taste-test of 6-7 IPAs in a row, this was a perfect one to finish off with. Makes me ashamed to think of how it was only months ago that I avoided hoppy beers whenever possible, but extremely happy that I’ve finally turned around.

DJMonarch (9162) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 07/08/2009 Hoppy aroma. Amber mid brown coloured strong in alcohol and fruity with a little dryness and bitterness in a crisp malt finish.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2009
An amber colored beer with a small head. The aroma is a nice balance of malt & hops. The taste is the same as the aroma while noting this is not a hop bomb but a more balanced IPA between malt & hops that has a dry ending & good lacing.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2009
12 oz. Bottle. Pours pale/amber and clear with little to no froth. Smells of citrus, resin and lemons. A moderate bitterness is present during the swallow, the finish is fizzy and thin but very tasteful. The perfect IPA, the taste is complex and diverse. High recommendation.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 5, 2009
12oz bottle, purchased at Booze Bros. Pours a clear, bright orange-amber color; a thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Lots of overt candy sugar and crystal malts in the aroma; sweet, too much crystal. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: good amounts of earthy and citrus bitterness upfront; solid carbonation, decent presence in the mouth; nicely juicy hop presence, but the crystal malt focus and overt tea-like malts end up carrying this down in the end; disappointing. Lengthy finish: sweet candy sugar, lots of earthy hops, and the crystal malts finally fall away here to a nice lasting, toasty bitterness.

KyotoLefty (7232) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle. Hoppy aroma with caramel, tobacco and pine. Big hop flavor, lots of caramel, with tobacco, citrus, pine and some passion fruit. A very good IPA.
