1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Another purely mediocre brew from Deschutes.....I seem to remember a time when I really liked the beers from Bend but not anymore. Since then I have become a HUGE fan of IPAs (faves include Midnight Sun Sockeye Red IPA and 21st Amendment Back in Black IPA) but the PacNW IPAs seem to pale in comparison to the newer brewers suds. Inversion pours deep orange with a very foamy head, often overflowing my 16oz pint glass...could have been just this 12-pack but it seemed really over fizzy compared to past experiences. Flavor is a flat bitterness with very little sweetness or taste to enjoy. Finish is unbearably bitter and stays in your mouth, I dont taste much of anything here except the sting of bubbles on my tounge. Im taking the rest of the 12er to work to give away, will be the last time I drop $13 for this cruddy brew.

Decent not my favorite IPA, but I don't dislike. I am not big on the hop profile not sharp and piney. Good beer though very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was a faint floral hop with some malt sweetness. Nice copper color with a small white head. Good weight on the palate with average carbonation and a coating finish. Medium hops bitterness of floral and some citrus but the malt backbone was strong with caramel flavors and some grain.
