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.

Hints of butterscotch amid thick tangerine and apricot aromas. Heavy on the pine needles in the mouth. Oily thick with resinous, nettle-flavoured hops and orange peel bitterness. A dry woody finish. Thick and heavy going but I love it.

Tap at Father’s 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 it’s really underwhelming: it’s like an orange-flavored tea. No sharpness or bitter hoppiness, just a round, slightly oxidized tea flavor. Now this could be the FO’s insistence on serving old-ass beer, or it could be Deschuttes’ 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.

MrChopin (3810) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2009
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.

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.
