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.

Beerdedone (2837) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber with a dense white head. Aroma of pine, biscuit, caramel and grapefruit. Flavor was hoppy sweet & bitter with pine, caramel, citrus, grapefruit and had a dry and bitter finish.

UXO (608) - CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, citrus, catty, caramel malt, mild onion. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5) Not my favourite implementation of starts-with-C hops. Too little bright citrus, too much mangy cat. Deschutes has done many better beers. (12/20)

Idiosynkrasie (4472) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
355ml bottle. Very hazy, reddish, copper-ish, dark amber colour with average to huge, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Sweaty, fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of blood orange, red berries, gooseberry, nettle, blue-veined cheese, purulence. Taste is herbal, leafy, minimally chalky, bitter hoppy, notes of bitter orange, orange zest, gooseberry, some sweat; extremely sugarless in a way. Plays definitely on a genuine claviature, British history inspired.
