Poured a beautiful deep amber, with a finger and a half of fluffy, off-white head that stuck around. It looks fantastic. Scents of citrus and slight pine, but with a lot stronger a scent of malt. What I normally expect from an IPA, with a little bit more malt. Flavor is hoppy, with citrus, pine, some floral notes and a bit of a fruity character. There is a nice malt presence in the background, mostly caramel malt, though there is a nice bready flavor on the finish and in the aftertaste. Pretty on style for an IPA. Maybe a little too malty for my taste. The hops are present and quite good though. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. It's pleasant and easy to drink. Slightly stickier than I like, but not unpleasantly so. Overall it's a pretty good IPA. Different from a lot of the West Coast IPAs I've tried, but similar in some ways. It's not bad, though I'm not sure I'd make it my go-to IPA.

I really enjoyed this IPA. Descheutes Never let's me down with their beer. It has a nice honey golden color. Smell is of a hoppy nature but not overbearingly hoppy. I like my beers super hoppy which would make this one perfect for a none Double IPA sipper. Taste is nice when it hits the palate. Little floral note with a nice amount of bitterness. Smooth going down without the syrupy feel you get from some IPA's. Throughly enjoyed this beer and will definitely drink again!

On tap at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a red colour, head is white. Mild lace but decent on the edge. Nice.
Smells hoppy and pleasant. Touch of rubber, but nice citrus and resin. Mild, crisp. Touch of pine needle and dish detergent. Nice.
Taste is stodgier than expected, quite yeasty on the mid and back with quite a full body. Bit of pine and mild sherbet but yeah, yeasty and chalky. Not quite as much hop cleanliness as I may have expected on the back.
Slight tingle on the back. OK feel.
Not quite as bitter as it could have been, feels a little heavy as well.
