COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPAís intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours pale/amber and clear with little to no froth. Smells of citrus, resin and lemons. A moderate bitterness is present during the swallow, the finish is fizzy and thin but very tasteful. The perfect IPA, the taste is complex and diverse. High recommendation.

Excellence. This could be the best IPA around. Great balance and hoppy finish. Will buy again.

My current favorite brand of my favorite style. I like this beer...a little too much. I could go on and on about its balance and beauty and big fat smack of ecstacy but Iíll just say, "BUY IT!" If you canít buy it. Iím truly sorry.

Had this beer on CASK at HORSEBRASS PUB in Portland, OR. Amber color, casking creates beautiful lacing on the glass. Maple notes in the nose. "Aged" cedar aroma and bright floral hops. bitter, bitter, bitter, I want to homebrew a beer just like this one. Cascade?

Love this ipa. Bitter but not harsh, everytime i drink it i think of orange peel french toast for some reason, which is not something you would normally associate with an ipa. Definately on the sweet side, but its a complex sweetness. If you like malty sweet ipas its worth seeking out, if you dont you should try it anyway, you might be surprised.

Oh Sweet Providence this is why I drink beer! Big, big hops, piney, floral, very bitter, but wait! That remarkable balance of malty, toasty, biscuity sweetness! Always there, never too much. My bi-polar beauty. Big, powerful, hoppy perfection. This is my go to, my dependable, my rock and my redeemer. Quite nearly my all time favorite. Never disappoints. Would I drink again? - oh hell yes. again and again. Would I buy/order again? with my last dollar.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 "Floral." Iíve often used that word to describe the aroma of IPAís. It wasnít until I got a whiff of Deschutesí Inversion that I realized I was overusing that word. Now THAT is a floral aroma. Fortunately, it doesnít just smell beautiful. The appearance features attractive carbonation and a relatively clear body. Taste is, well, hoppy but not harsh in its intensity. Very good IPA.
