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.

Very pleasant aroma for this beer. It is darker in color but has a smooth taste and slightly bitter finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a clear copper color with a finger of creamy off-white head that eventually develops into a nice layer atop the glass. The nose is filled with mostly citrus and piney hops with some sweet malt aromas. The flavor is bitter hops upfront with some malt and finishes sweet and strongly bitter with a slightly dry finish. The body is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. This is a good beer although it does come across a little hot.

Beer pours copper with a slight white head and slight haze. Beer has a citrusy grapefruit hop aroma. Beer flavor has an excellent hop flavor that hangs on the palate throughout the swallow. There is a slight indication of malt presence, but very minor. Palate is very nice without having too much stickyness or dryness. Overall beer is a nice IPA and I would definatley have this again.

iguanodon (145) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a thick head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, faint earth. Taste is malty caramel with good hop balance. Kind of malty for an IPA which I wouldnt normally care for but it works here.

I just bought this beer on a whim because it was the first time ive seen it. I always enjoy Deschutes beers so I had to pick it up. This brew pours a nice amber color and sports a decent piney and citrus scent. The brew has a good amount of hops to it. The citrus flavors pull through nicely with a hint of toffee in the malts. Overall an above average IPA, but nothing mind-blowing.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2007
This is an intriguing beer, quite complex. The initial blast was more pilsner than ipa but go back again and you get that strong blast of orange, grapefruit and melted butter sweetness. Not overpowering by any means, and very pleasant. The taste is big malt then loads and loads of bitterness to finish. Slightly astringent mouthfeel otherwise i would have rated higher. Im a big fan of deschutes and this hasnt changed my mind.

CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours light brown with close head. Aroma is faintly chemical and a tobacco-like whiff. Straight bitter is predominant flavor with some orange, caramel and honey. This last note detracts. Palate is average, unremarkable. A good beer if you are in the mood for bitter.
