COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Really bitter with a dry bite. It's missing a little bit on complexity, but overall I think it's a good choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold pour. Flavor is pine, grass, straw, light sugary sweetness, light Amarillo hops (only way I know how to describe Amarillo is to name it) light bitterness. Tingly mouth feel. Lighter body. Extremely easy to pound.

Very enjoyable as long as you like hoppy pine aroma and taste, very crisp and bitter at once.

BelgianBeerGal (3971) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle in Alamogordo before QF-4 retirement. Deep gold color with a big foamy white head. Big fruity, piney aroma that escapes the head cap. Very mild flavor with some earthy, mineral bitterness. Okay.

jcnielsen (3375) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with white head. Pine, lemon, citrus, hoppy, resiny, conifer forest aromas. Pine is clearly front-most in the flavor, but a good mixture of piney/resiny hop and lemony/citrus hop flavors. Damn fine IPA, glad I picked up a sixer of this.

TedE (1184) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2016
355ml bottle into shaker. Cloudy golden beer with solid craggy white head. Great fresh floral nose. Smells of pine of course but also grass, malt and pepper. Oily texture, lovely mouthfeel. Great fruity/bitter finish. The first beer Ive had that tastes of pine AND pineapple. Good malt background. Right at the end theres a funky umami note. Excellent, easy to drink but still complex and interesting.

ccex (1251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2016
12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange with moderate off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine resin, and sweet citrus. Taste is slightly dank and bitter, with some sweetness in the middle, before a long dry, and almost sour finish. Theres something dank and disconcerting in the aftertaste Body is medium with average carbonation. Ive enjoyed every Deschutes brew Ive tried more than this one.

Very odd. I thought maybe this was expired, but I checked the day. Its Oct 10 now, and this is best before Nov. 23, so it should still be good. Cloudy yellow body, white head some lacing. Off-putting aroma of blue cheese, pineapple. Taste is dry, some hops, pine, etc. but not great. I almost have to plug my nose while drinking this. Theres gotta be something off with this bottle. Perhaps Ill try it again if I get another bottle, but as is this is borderline drain pour...though, of course, I never actually pour beer down the drain.

bottled - cloudy golden/amber color. Flavor of pine and hops. Piney hoppy aroma too. Just ok but Im not a big fan of the pine flavor.
