4.13/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz brown bottle with a "best by" freshness date on the side of the label.

A- Hazed rusted copper hue, certainly darker than I expected but nothing out of the ordinary. Thin lace after a two fingered froth leaves a dusting down the side of the glass.

S- Mildly pungent citrus zest, juicy hop aroma with some toasted and caramel malt in the back end. Very aromatic.

T&M- So damn smooth with a creamy back side, hop-o-licious with a sharp bite of bitterness and layers of citric peel, zest and juice. Solid toasted malt flavor is modest with a slight caramel malt sweetness, hint of fruity esters show some of the alcohol off with a warming finish.

D- This is old school "micro-brew". You have to love this raw beast, it brings back so many memories of what some of the IPA were like back in the 1990's. Inversion IPA is a must try, especially if you love hoppy beers. Paired well with a pressed German Ham and Swiss pannini.

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!

3.45/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

Serving type: on-tap
