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.

Poured from bottle into snifter, hazy red amber with fine frothy head but very light aroma. Taste is a bit fizzy with a hint of soap. Not bad, but so many better out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear bronze colour with small head. Aroma is gentle sweet fruits, kiwi, melon, apple and sweet caramel malts. Taste is much more aggressive and bitter than aroma. Resin, pine, soap, grapefruit and hops. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very long, resinous, bitter and dry finish. Turns out to be very different beer at the end than what aroma promises.

I love both deschutes’ beers and IPAs, but this is only very good, not great. Pours a pretty orange and shows its bottle conditioning. Aroma is underwhelming, pretty typical for an APA, some citrus some floral but not huge. Tastes like a Sierra Nevada with less citrus, basically. Nothing wrong with it but not exciting withers. I’d pick their fresh squeezed over this every time.

Initial taste is a mouthfull of Soothing hops. A medium consistency with a nice after taste. Overall good ipa.

Muggus69 (1271) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2014
355mL bottle Brewed 19Aug14 Clean copper gold body, holds a dense white head. Nice but somewhat subdued aroma; grass, pine, bitter orange, with a light caramelly, toasted malt note. Full, slick body, nice creamy carbonation, persistent on the palate. Hops come through with a savoury tone on the body; cut grass, dried leafy herbs, pine & cedar, with grapefruit rind combining with toasty malt backbone. Dry finish, sharp bitterness cuts through nicely. Good stuff.

Pours copper with a thick off white head that leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is malt and grapefruit. Has medium carbonation the mouth with a bit of a bitter kick on the back end. Good grapefruit bitterness and a tad sweet and malty. This a nice IPA.

if it only had an over the top nose, as the brewery claims. Deschutes is my favorite place, so for them, this is a miss. i can name off about a dozen ipas of the top of my head that are more flavorful. not bad, just a touch boring. better on tap. 7/10-last batch the best i;ve had in a bottle. juicier. hoppier. fresher? definitely better, more like the tap."

Lots of hops, but balanced with malt sweetness and body. Dark Amber color was viewful. Less hop bite than many MI brews.

On tap at Ölrepubliken. Hazy orange with white head. Smell is grapefruit hoppy. Taste is hoppy with pine, grapefruit, zest, flowers. Dry somewhat oily with high bitterness and low carbonation.

mjs (4792) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2014
(Keg at Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala, 20140924) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, herbalness and creamy toffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, fruitiness, creamy toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A well done IPA.
