Got a sixpack of this from the liquor store. Deschutes has been mentioned several times in podcasts that I listen to, so I grabbed this when I saw it.
Appearance is a clear amber, much darker than I usually see in an IPA. Has a nice, fine, lingering head.
Nice hoppy scent with hints of citrus.
I really like the balance of hops and malts in this beer. There's plenty of bitter and citrus hops here, but it's also balanced with the caramel sweetness of the malt.
Overall, this might be my new favorite IPA.

3.16/5 rDev -19%

NOT an IPAer / Hop Head, but since one should always try new (or re-try) things, I took the advice of the local Omaha beer shoppe on this one (since heard good things on Deschutes).
Color / Aroma: medium honey brown, with magnificent hop fragrance; mild carbonation.
Taste: medium strong hoppiness flavor all the way through to after taste (which is a big end result to me), where it lingers and then becomes partially distasteful (but somewhat expected to me).
Drinkability / Potency: only had the one, but perhaps it becomes more alluring and appreciated with a 2nd or with food (drank right after the 5 pm work day whistle blew without anything).
Overall: not bad but unfortunately, not my cup of tea; each his/her own--ain't life grand!!!
Post Review Note: sampled Anderson Valley Spring Hornin 2 days after initial review, and liked better, so have downgraded overall accordingly. Post Post Note: having just had Loose Canon IPA right after the Spring Hornin (however skewed tastebuds may be), feel Inversion aftertaste the WORST of the 3.
