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.

Second taste of this for me, decided it was time to rate it. For a beer which doesn’t get raved about, it really is a fabulously hoppy beast. Citrus and pine are to the fore, but a searing bitter finish. The malt is no slouch either, with some nice baked bread character, and some fruity esters round out a great beer.

Bottle: Pour looks look, red-orange IPA look. Aroma is mellow but clearly hoppy. Has bubble gum, sweetness, herbal and fruity. I really can´t say it better than: After months of experimentation, energy and obsession, Deschutes Brewery’s brewers have triumphed once again with their newest creation - Inversion IPA. Inversion’s trio of American hops delivers an over-the-top nose with hints of orange and grapefruit. Inversion is then dry-hopped for seven days resulting in an added hoppy kick. To balance the hop character of Inversion, Deschutes’ brewers used crystal and caraston malts that weave throughout the beer providing soft, complex caramel flavors. Inversion IPA is smooth and delicious. Just like clear days up on the mountain, Inversion IPA will deliver a path to higher ground. Food Pairing: Spicy seafood, shrimp, crabs.

brenn79 (1710) - Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2009
bottle-deep amber color, little head.First taste-spice flavor, different than most IPA’s. half point-Little to no head left, flavors are holding up nicely. finish-This beer grew on me as it warmed, it’s complex, new flavors you dont normally find in an IPA, and i give this brew props for trying something new. Overall i was impressed with the complexity, but i like my IPA’s more traditionally.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
A solid, if not spectacular, IPA. Not a bad beer, although a little too strong to be reasonably sessioned.

rabidbarfly (62) - London, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
The hops come through a beauty on the nose along with faint orange. This was not as in-your-face as a usual american ipa but managed to peak my interest all the same. Got some caramel from the taste and hoppy bitterness that still isn’t too in your face.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is dry pinewood hops. Dry fruity and pinewood hoppy. Smooth caramel malt base. Light bitter and medium dry with a lingering smooth malt base into the far finish.

poisoneddwarf (1936) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. The aroma and flavor are almost reminiscent of barleywine. Malty in the nose, good balance between hops and malt in the taste. Good, interesting IPA.
