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.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle from 12many.
Hell yeah, this is an awesome IPA. Right up there with Two Hearted as far as my favorite non-imperial IPAs. Amber in color with a nice thick white head. Great piney nose and wonderful flavor of dry pine and floral hoppiness. Awesome balance of malts and hops in this one. Starts off a little sweet with some serious hoppiness and finishes with a bitter bite.

12 oz. bottles; pours clear light amber with eggy thick off-white head settling slowly; pears, light apricots, musky hops and caramel on the nose; sugary hops and mild fruity juice; syrupy light caramel, white sugar and crystal malt; nice stale, lemony bitterness with medium body; not in your face fresh, but a solid, smooth and drinkable IPA; dry caramel malt, tangy fruit and plenty bitter

daknole (10859) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Reddish orange pour with a big bubbled white head. Simply citrus hop aroma. And then the flavor...BANG. Bitter hops hit with a great citrus peel flavor and just enough malt to keep you from puckering up and shuddering. Man the hops are delicious. Very drinkable beer...very delicious.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2010
Particle hazed amber, thick sticky beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet and dank hops, floral. Taste is more sweet than bitter, resinous finish. Lots of thick malt and some roast flavors. Medium smooth texture.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2010
Smells like standing in a hop field, but in some kind of movie. I’ve never stood in a hops field, but this is what I hope it’s like. Very crisp and hoppyy. Perfect red and amber, not much head or lacing, it is the exact IPA representation I expect. Quite bitter and hoppy, and sweet malt at the end. Nice. I would definately get this regularlly if it wasn’t so hard to get in my location.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2010
Pours clear amber thin head, with a slightly reddish tinge. Excellent bold hoppy aroma it smells like the pacific north west. Malty to start with a strong floral hop falvour and aroma giving way to deep complex layers of bitterness. the after taste goes for miles and continues to eveolve. this is a complex and excellent IPA.!!! Deschutes sure knows how to hop a beer. This is an amazing IPA. It kicks ass!
