This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

with a name like this i expect to smell pine but i don’t, resin okay, with some caramel and grassy green. Clear yellow with a green-amber tinge, thin white head. What am i tasting, butter, here’s some pine, syrup without maple, almost camphor deeper in the gullet. A forest-y finish. The palate is confused.

Bottle. Best by 7/24/15 date. A: Light amber with a few dancing lines of bubbles. Huge foamy head. N: Enormous pine, orange, and pineapple. Hint of grapefruit. Earth floor and fall leaves. Cracker base. Hint of lemon. T: Quite bitter, light malt, cleanly delineated. M: Medium body, fizzing carbonation that starts with a noticeable prickle and then dies into a soft nothingness. No alcohol presence. O: A potent IPA whose name is pretty clear about what you’re going to get. Deschutes continues to produce clean, quality beers, and I, for one, am glad for it.

Draft. Aroma if chalky pine resin. Flavors are dusty and dry, hinting at resin but never quite landing on it. There’s a hint of citrus here too. Finishes as quickly as a water cracker.

poisoneddwarf (1856) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2015
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is piney, catty, citrus powder drink. Pours clear old gold with a long-sustaining white head. Taste is piney, citrusy, biscuity, starting sweet before a solid but not extreme bitterness sets in. Good.

Reid (2022) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pint poured from a growler filled at Growl Movement in Salem. $12 Clear gold ale with a large and frothy dirty white head. Nice strong citrus, r esiny hop with a hint of hay like malts. Really startling taste..its like a good bohemian pilsner crossed with a citrus hop bomb..cool. Nice medium mouth feel.. Very nice IPL/A..very drinkable.

vyvvy (4499) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at the Portland brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit and caramel with a great balance between everything. It is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts very piney / woody with some grapefruit zest and decent amount of mildly toasted malt that offsets the hoppiness. The finish is resiny and bitter. Quite good.

maekchu (2535) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2015
Tap at Deschutes Brewery & Public House (Portland). Sharp piney hop aroma, with a severely fresh fruitiness. Bright orange/straw color. Light maltiness and tingling piney hop, a bit spicy. Thin-medium body, nice clean crisp mouthfeel. Great balance.
