COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPAs intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

redbeard (6) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2007 does not count
Hoppy, floral aroma. Assertive hops flavor and somewhat acidic, bitter. A very neutral IPA with a reserved caramel sweetness. Dry and a bit boring in the end.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Slightly cloudy brass color, with a decent head and lacing. Strong grapefruit nose overlays barely detectable grains. The hop bite is strong from front to back, and additional flavors of the malts appear only when the beer warms a bit. This is a pretty good IPA. I had this on cask several weeks ago at the Parkway Tavern in Tacoma, but didnt take notes. The rating would go up for the cask conditioned, easily.

thanks cmubeerman. a pretty nice clear red brown with sizeable head. this is about 80% as hoppy smelling as the most hoppy IIPA ive had. not so much citrus as northwest coast type stuff. pretty decent. taste is immediately very nicely sweet malts. definitely bitter on the back half. overall a bit less satisfying, but i can appreciate the piecemeal.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 3, 2007
Thanks to kenb for the trade. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium off white foamy/rocky head that left lacing all down the sides of teh glass. Aroma had lots of grapefruit, some pine, some sweet grainy/caramel malts in there. Flavor was pine/grapefruit, some caramel, lots of hop flavor overall. Some flavor and fruity esters coming through as it warmed.

TChrome (1461) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Beer pours lightly cloudy copper color with a totally retained off white colored head. Aroma is bracingly citric, sharp grapefruit aroma, pretty juicy as well. Flavor is sharply bitter, with sharp grapefruit flavor, light orange juice, maybe a hint of caramel malt, but hard to find through the hoppiness. Pretty good. Thanks Andre

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle on 3/18/07 in Colorado. Bright and clear orange liquid under a medium white head and fair lace. Fresh hoppy aroma of citrus and pine with some contribution from light malts. Medium body and carbonation, clean, dry mouthfeel. Although the caramel sweetness is there, the grapefruit bitterness quickly overcomes, bringing on a lenghty dry finish. This is a nice example of an American style IPA.

I was expecting a bit more from this beer. Aroma was soapy with floral and light citrus notes. In the mouth it was sweet, with decent hops, but nothing that stood out. Finish is wierd.

Shared by mball581 on 3/09/2007. Thanks Matt! ... Deschutes Inversion IPA pours a hazy, but bright copper color. The head is thin and frothy in texture and ivory in color. Sweet and sugary grapefruit and some orange citrus fill the aroma. The flavor is earthy and mostly dominated by hop flavor including pine and grapefruit. However, the overall bitterness is moderate and there is some toffee-like maltiness underneath. This beer has a medium body with subtle carbonation (quite smooth as well). This IPA isnt overly unique, buts still quite tasty! 12 oz bottle. Best by 12/23/2006 (1230D).

Tap. Hazy bronze body, small white head with dense soapy lacing. Grape skin and lime in the bitter aroma. Pine and grapefruit bitterness pervades the flavor, some light crystal malt underneath. White not horribly unique the bold hops make it hard to resist.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle thanks to Dirty_Martini. Poured a deep amber body with hugh head, light lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt with an odd citrus feel that I couldnt pin-point. Falvor is really bitter at first with a sweet malt backbone. Settled down a bit but was still more bitter than the body would allow. Light cirtus aftertaste.
