Re-review. Enjoy by date of 5/14/13
Appearance - Pours a deep, semi-clear reddish amber with an off-white, 2 finger head. Good retention. Strong lace all around the glass, with excellent stick.
Smell - Strong caramel presence, with hints of red apple. Somewhat earthy, slightly citric hop character takes a back seat in the aroma.
Taste - Plenty of caramel malt flavors to start and through the finish, but is met halfway with a moderate, floral and citrus hop which takes the lead and blasts through into the finish. Hints of earth. Mild orange pith bitterness in the aftertaste. An intriguing, tasty combination.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate, soft carbonation. Near creamy. Semi-dry finish.
Overall - A unique take on the style, where balance is more key than IBU's. Reminds me a bit of the Stone Levitation, but with considerable more hop aggressiveness... or the Red Chair, with less hop aggressiveness. One beer I could drink all night and not get tired of.

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...
