3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle to glass. Clear amber pour. Floral / fruity hop aroma. Taste is citrus hops and caramel malts. Good bitterness. Light carb. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A- Floral, hoppy, citrus, piney.
A- Dark copper color, hazy liquid, tan head.
T- Medium-Strong bitterness, subtle citrus, spruce.
P- Full body, sharp texture, average carbonation, lingering bitter finish.
O- Not as bitter and hardcore as I was expecting it to be. The citrus seems to fade as the beer warms and the floral tones come out stronger. This is a solid example of an IPA but still not one I find myself drooling over.

Good IPA. Great tasting hops and good crisp finish. Smell is sweet of hops and maybe a little fruit in there somewhere.

Not much of an aroma. Color looks like Yeungling. Lame. Tastes like sweet bananas. Would only drink this if it were free. But then, of course, I would drink a lot of it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from trade. Been wanting to try this one for a while now. Pours a beautiful clear amber red with a one finger off white and very creamy head. Looks like an amber. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral bouquets, some other orange citrus rind too. Flavor had a nice caramel and bready malt presence, a nice bit of bitter pine, some citrus character. Insanely drinkable and very nice, leaning more toward the APA style than IPA. Light to medium bodied, slightly resinous, with medium plus carbonation. A really nice every day type of beer that I would love to have available locally.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light golden color with a ridiculous, frothy head that does not want to go away and leaves thick lacing the entire way down the glass
Aroma is delicate hops with a stale hop aroma
Flavor is a burst of stale full leaf hops with a slight resinous aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel holds resinous aftertaste on tongue.
