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.

Linc (737) - Sydney, - MAY 31, 2007
Cloudy bronze colour. Moderately hoppy aroma, though the hops aren’t very lively, their aroma seems muted, flat and wet if that makes sense. Like the aroma, hop flavours are not well defined they tend to wallow in sweet malt and slowly peter out into a spicy hop finish. I suspect the bottle I tried was not the freshest, but it didn’t really show signs of past glory. Unlike most other Deschutes beers, this one did not really impress me.

smroush (72) - Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Small off white head; medium Amber color; a bit cloudy. Aromas primarily of spruce but some bread/molasses malt aromas come through as well. Medium body; moderate sweetness; a bit acidic; fairly long bitter finish. Overall a pretty good IPA with some nice balance from the Malta; not a one-dimensional hop bomb.

ScipioA (353) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a deep copper red with a small team head. Aroma is floral hops and beer. Delicious fruity yeasts along with flowers, grass, and a little citrus from the hops. Not much bitterness and nearly no alcohol notes makes this an easy drinker. Very smooth, very soft and frothy mouthfeel. Great stuff!

Flowery sweet fruity hop notes and some caramel. Nice backbone upholding the bitter caracter. Nice

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2015
Lovely deep orange amber color with nice frothy tan head. Good lacing. Rich aroma with pine, resin, dried fruits and hops. Solid body and a bit oily texture. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Rich flavor here. Lots of resin, some pine, a bit tropical fruity and hoppy. Powerful complex IPA.
