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.

This solid IPA held everything from a medium boldness to an abundance of hops. I really enjoyed this beer.

Bottle to pint glass. Looks the part of a good IPA. All downhill after that, and I can’t quite explain it. Deschutes is a great brewery, ratings on this are bad. Maybe I got a bad 6 pack, because the 2 I’ve sampled have been extremely skunky and the hops are nowhere to be found. Very surprising. Will update if it turns out this was a "bad batch" (which happens to every brewer).

iguanodon (139) - Bountiful, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a thick head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, faint earth. Taste is malty caramel with good hop balance. Kind of malty for an IPA which I wouldn’t normally care for but it works here.

I liked this one. Enough hoppy citrus to bitter up the buds and the creamy malts smooth it all away. I was not expecting such a complex tasting brew when I popped the top. Descent off white head and plenty of aroma to keep the drinker interested during enjoyment.

12oz bottle@home in a wine glass. Pours well with nice aromas of cherry and citrus. Cloudy light orange/yellow in color. Mild bubbly head. Smooth on the palate, but hits you with an abrupt dose of hops.

spittle8 (135) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Sweet malty aroma with hops. Very well balanced hops, not too piney or anything. A bit creamy for an IPA. A solid beer.

Very pleasant aroma for this beer. It is darker in color but has a smooth taste and slightly bitter finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

VeinAle (134) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from sampler pack. Aroma is grapefruit and booze. Pours a dark amber with chunky head that clings and glistens. Taste is rich hops and some distinct malt carriage. Lingering malt flavors and bread cling to my palate. Overall, a solid contender.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Sampled a bottle of this new release. Poured into a glass and the color was a nice orange but the clarity was very mirky, much like an unfiltered beer. Mild hop nose, expecting more based on the product description and the dry hopping. Nice malt balance but some astringency in the taste as well as some medicinal notes. I like that they’re pushing the limits on IBU’s but I found the hop aftertaste a little offensive. Seems a little raw and tongue scraper-like. I imagine this might have been one of the first bottlings. Maybe I should have waited a month. I will wait awhile and try it once more to see if it’s more than an average IPA.
