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.

More brassy colored than pale. Underwhelming aroma, a little citrus, spice and taffy(?) Strong and enduring bitter hops paint this flavor on the palate. Some resinous hard toffee provides the canvas. Tasty, but somewhat lacking, especially if you believe the propaganda.

EKGoldings (674) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2017
On tap tasting room Roanoke. Mahogeny, slight haze, some lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, C hops. Taste is sweet, balanced, crisp bitterness on back end. Very drinkable and balanced with no Citra-Mosaic nastiness. A fine beer.

From Jun 2006

Poured from 12oz bottle (best by 8/31/06) an amber gold with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly leaving a fine layer with some lacing.

The smell is on the delicate side...notes of citrus from the hops and some spiciness.

The taste is a strong citrus bitter up front but then, a good malt sweetness(caramel) moves in and balances the taste nicely. The finish goes back to and actually intensifies in the bitterness and spiciness department. Hmm....I'm liking this new IPA from this very solid brewery!

Bottom line: Another solid offering from Deschutes that I hope makes its way to Casper for further "testing". :^)

A bit of funk on the nose. The bitterness again seems slightly astringent to me. Decent ipa, not great. Deschutes portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Another great IPA by Deschutes. The only brewery, in my opinion, that is brewing good IPAs, the rest are all the same. This one is a nice crisp IPA that is one of my favorites for cold weather. Has a nice malty character and mouth-feel with the perfrct touch of hops.

Nice IPA. Not strong aroma. Nice amber but cloudy. Clears eventually. Fairly full mouth with nice balanced hops and malt initially. Finishes nicely but a little sharp with good staying power. Been looking for more every day IPA when not spending for special. This could be it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was a fan of this beer. It had good flavor for an IPA but finished on the light side. Not much of an aftertaste that some can leave, but left you wanting another sip ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Facebook in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is mild malts, citrus peels, earthy bits. Taste is citrus-y and then an earthy bitterness that reminded me of chewing on a poisonous twig. Harsh.

MaBeer1972 (2185) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 17, 2017
Bottle from Total. Pours out a nice-looking deep amber color with a frothy light tan head and lots of lacing. Big fruity-spice aroma and flavors with a bit of citrus and pine. Good bitterness but a little too much on the sweet side for me.
