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.

bhensonb (14080) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2006
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.

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
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!
