COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPAís intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - JAN 7, 2010
12 oz bottle pours red amber into a tulip with plenty off white head. Aroma of pineapple, lemon grass, hops, floral. Bitter upfront with dry, piney hops; bit of detectable malty sweetness, lemon peel. Fizzy/soft on the palate with medium carbonation and body. Refreshing.

Opaque, medium amber. Furniture polish, bread and herbs. Bracing citrus with an intense but short finish.

Alphadelic (2083) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2010
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 Fatherís 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 itís really underwhelming: itís like an orange-flavored tea. No sharpness or bitter hoppiness, just a round, slightly oxidized tea flavor. Now this could be the FOís insistence on serving old-ass beer, or it could be Deschuttesí 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 (3999) - 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. Itís 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.
