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.

fidelis83 (1955) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Old copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy, kinda soapy beige head that has great retention and leaves pretty nice lacing. Lots of caramel and hay in the aroma, spicy and planty hops, fruity yeast and some citrus hops. Flavor starts off with lots of malt sweetness, caramel, anise and husky grain bitterness, continuing on with some sorghum honey sweetness, deep, sweet and bitter citrus, finishing with deep caramel, planty, fruity and citrus hops. Medium body, chewy, oily and juicy feel up fronts, light and sharp carbonation and off dry finish. Good stuff, nicely complex, it’s not really what I am generally looking for in an IPA, but it has a lot going for it.

(Keg at Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala, 20140924) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, herbalness and creamy toffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, fruitiness, creamy toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A well done IPA.

dfearnley (974) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft to IPA glass Tropical fruit, grapefruit, flowers, biscuit, and pine. Thick translucent rddish amber, with a long lasting creamy and frothy light tan head. Pine, grapefruit, papaya, hops, and a bit of grain. This is classic Deschutes.

Salmoniform (681) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, pine, straw, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a strong hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a really nice shelf IPA.

RRistow12 (256) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice copper color with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of floral notes, caramel and some toasted malt. Taste is pretty well balanced and sweeter than most IPAs. Caramel, toffee, brown auger malt backbone give it moderate sweetness with some pine and floral flavors giving it a clean consistent moderate bitterness. Above average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2014
Golden cloudy appearance with a light fruity aroma, tastes of tropical fruits hit with an acidic sensation which turned to bitter aftertaste, creamy texture, very good IPA.

commonmac (336) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Tap at Jake O’Conner’s. Pint glass. Frothy head, lacing is high quality. Copper, maybe amber. Aroma has some strong hop characteristics. Malt sweetness at the onset. Hoppy throughout the middle and towards the end leaving a bitter, but enjoyable finish. More of a fall feel to this option. Not as citrus refreshing as other Pacific Northwest IPAs. Definitely worth a sample.

Block (1425) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A good beer with a solid hop flavor. Alcohol is masked well. A bit piney at the finish.

ALLOVATE (2419) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
At just on cool and into a snifter. Radiant, translucent orange copper, a little too translucent, with a fine bead and steady, loose off-white crest. Poignantly camphorous, like a hit of Mortein™ to the head, is the nose with just enough biscuity malt, leafy herbs, roasted nuts, pine and nettles and just a sneaky touch of stonefruit. Bold and yet quite subtle on the palate. Creamy with very soft carbonation. Firm, malty, nutty and woody backdrop before a fruity, cherry rich, camphorous swallow. Long lasting bitterness; plenty of raw hops with floral, musky notes and bitter citrus fruit. Ok, but not ground breaking stuff. Weighted, but sessionable! (12fl.Oz, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
