My cool bartender offered up a free sample of this at the Deschutes Portland brewpub. 4 oz. served in a taster on November 28th, 2012.

A - Medium golden, good clarity, thin eggshell head

S - I'm actually blind tasting this. The aroma is dominated by a sparkly orange juice - this is obviously Citra. Lightly tropical, with just a bit of pineapple. No malt backing present.

T - Oranges really pour through, and it's pretty single note. I pull light pine at the back-end as well.

M - Thin body, fine carbonation, semi-sweet finish.

D - This is like a less complex, sweeter version of Zombie Dust. I hear they'll be bottling it next year using a different hop profile, which is probably stupid because that will completely change this beer.

A: Beautiful burnt orange color with a thin 1/4 inch head that quickly dissipates and leaves a white ring around the glass. Minimal lacing

S: smells of pineapple and citrus

T: clean tropical and citrus fruit flavor followed by hints of malt with a grassy and bitter but not overwhelming hop presence.

M: Good carbonation that provides a pleasant tingling sensation.

Great IPA, but hard to find and expensive at $3.99 a bottle.

Had on tap at the Portland Brewpub.
a-Poured a light gold color with a skinny layer of head that thinly laced along the side of the glass.
s-The smell was a pure piney hop smell.
t-A very strong pine taste upfront with a very bitter aftertaste.
m/d-This is a real slow drinker, very strong and bitter. I really enjoy IPA's, but this one disappointed me a little.

Pretty Solid IPA here. $5.99

A - Darker than expected. Dark copper color, decent activation and head retention.

S - There's that Citra...a musty melon aroma and oranges, some apricot.

T - Musty Citra Melon forward citrus, caramel malt backbone.

M - Crisp, clean & refreshing. Easy going down, no problem killing the 22oz.

O - Other breweries that come to mind (RRBC, Drake's, FFF) would offer this as their hoppy pale ale. Pretty solid beer here, but not as "juicy" as the name and label would suggest. Worth the one time purchase. Better than Red Chair, but not better on the wallet, but worth the spend.

Appearance. Pours a deep, rich orange-amber with a little haze and finger of off white head.

Smell. Juicy red grapefruits, lemon rinds, and oranges. Fairly sweet with some nice caramel coming through.

Taste. Really juicy with red grapefruit, orange and a little squeeze of lime juice. Some nice caramel malts backing up all those hops and an oily, bitter citrus rind finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Great stuff, Deschutes! Tons of citrus in this big hop bomb. My kind of IPA.

Picked up at the COOP for a pricey (given it is a regular IPA) $5... Pours with a 1 finger off white head atop a very slightly hop hazy orange brew... nice lacing for the entire glass and subsequent pours.

The aromas are mainly melon hoppiness given the assist by a lite malty background that seems to help the hops bloom a bit.

Flavor has a very mild bitter bite given the style, but a wonderful tropical fruitbowl hoppy palate... pineapple and melon come immediately to mind... Within most style guidelines, but I would prefer the lite caramel dialed back some.

Body and carbonation are pretty much spot on.. though it the body could come down a notch IMO.

Pretty drinkable... Though probably too expensive (in 22's) for me to buy again unless I was experimenting with Citra or Mosaic hops when homebrewing. I would happily pay $10ish for a 6'er.
