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.

The Inversion IPA is another solid offering from Deschutes. The beer poured a clear copper with white head. The scent had fresh hops that were more floral leaning. The taste was a nice combination of floral, pine and citrus. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer and could be sessioned.

Excellent IPA.. Taste, colour, smell/aroma. It is a thing of Beauty,,
Have never been to Oregon, but to taste this beer @ Deschutes Home turf would be quite a treat.
Will have to re-evulate my IPA critiques as my palate has become more acute of IPA excellence over IPA adjunct..
Life is so complicated, though GOOD IPA does ease the stress and pain.
I've NOTHING to say that is negative about this bottled bit of Nirvana..
Thank you, Friends from the NW United States..
Bless you and keep the excellence coming...
You Rock!!!!
