3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 12oz bottle to tulip. Nice aroma, not off the charts but highly respectful. Earthy with pineapple and apricot maybe even a touch of bubblegum. Inversion really does appear as a nearly red ale. A very robust tan head with sticky lacing. The palate is both bitter and buttery. There is a lasting resinous on the roof of the mouth and mid tongue. Carbonation is soft and the body is light to medium. The finish is dry but lingers with just a touch of brightness. A surprising IPA in many ways, not upper/upper echelon in my opinion but a good buy and damn tasty especially when on sale ($7.99 a six )and definitely fridge worthy. I will give it kudos for bringing the IBUs and you could pay more and get a lot less punch. Solid Stuff.

As much as I love IPA’s, after awhile it gets a little difficult to distinguish one from another. This was a good IPA. I would drink it again. There was really nothing that made this IPA stand out from the thousands of other IPA’s out there. It did what an IPA is supposed to do and did it quite well. Familiar look, familiar nose, familiar taste....

On tap. Darker coppery red pour. Hoppy citrus aroma with a bit of resin and malty cereal notes. Medium bodied, freshly hopped flavour and some citrus goodness. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Translucent copper orange. Small white head that quickly dissipates. Wonderful aroma containing notes of malt, hops, citrus, various other dried fruits, caramel, and flowers. Mid bodied. Initial taste is a extremely smooth combination of malt and caramel finishing with a robust flavour of hops, citrus, and flowers. Quite good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, citrus, catty, caramel malt, mild onion. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5)
Not my favourite implementation of starts-with-C hops. Too little bright citrus, too much mangy cat. Deschutes has done many better beers. (12/20)

Cervesa amb aroma resinós, en gust també és resinosa, però amb un toc acaramelat.
