4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aromas of citrus (grapefruit?) and malt? A bit redder than most IPAs, and a bit more body. Something like a thinner, hoppier doppel bock? The grassy finish covers both sides and top of tongue. Curl up with this one. (or these three) A major Deschutes innovation.

Draft - Floral hops with a nice balance. Clear copper with a decent thick head. Nice and floral with a citrus punch, very nice malt balance. Nothing stands out, but just so well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Beer Revolution, Calgary. It pours clear amber, with a medium off-white head. The nose is hop-sack, leaf, caramel, resin and light farmyard. The taste is pine, grapefruit, lemon pith, resin, leaf, varnish, light spice, malty backbone, caramel and a long, pretty damn bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A solid IPA, perhaps too malty for my preference. Good bitterness though!
