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.

woodsboy (18) - Fairbanks, Alaska, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Another purely mediocre brew from Deschutes.....I seem to remember a time when I really liked the beers from Bend but not anymore. Since then I have become a HUGE fan of IPAs (faves include Midnight Sun Sockeye Red IPA and 21st Amendment Back in Black IPA) but the PacNW IPAs seem to pale in comparison to the newer brewers suds. Inversion pours deep orange with a very foamy head, often overflowing my 16oz pint glass...could have been just this 12-pack but it seemed really over fizzy compared to past experiences. Flavor is a flat bitterness with very little sweetness or taste to enjoy. Finish is unbearably bitter and stays in your mouth, I dont taste much of anything here except the sting of bubbles on my tounge. Im taking the rest of the 12er to work to give away, will be the last time I drop $13 for this cruddy brew.

Clear copper colour. Aroma and flavour have some sweet malts and ripe fruits. Perhaps some honey dew melon. Smooth and well rounded.

swesson (433) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2017
From a bottle. Pours an amber orange and makes a thin white head. Aroma of hops and malted barley. Tastes more like a hoppy malt amber than an IPA, but I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Red Amber color, ok white head, a bit oily residue. Nose is more tobacco and toast hops, less of the over the top,grapefruit. Taste burnt malt, metallic and crisp, some herbal and vegetative notes, significant hops. Palate: sparkly front, medium body, dry finish, good hoppiness. Overall: good beer, balance is a bit towards hops, could,see this as being an acceptable craft ipa for most people.
