Poured from my growler into a Piraat tulip. The pour is darker than I'm used to seeing in this style. It is a murky reddish-amber with a couple fingers of foamy white head that dies down to a thin layer with lots of lacing. The nose is fruity and floral, with citrus-like grapefruit and herbal rose-petal notes of American hops.
Medium body, firm feel, and a hoppy, but balanced, flavor. Some marmalade and toast flavors up front and a well-tempered shot of grapefruit at mid-palate. Not too bitter at all. Nice lingering grapefruit-like flavor.
This is an old-school, balanced IPA and not a hop bomb. The flavor reminds me a little of Sierra Nevada's beers. There's that sharp, resiny hop flavor, lots of grapefruit, and a nice malty sweetness underneath. This beer would go well with many kinds of food. It could stand up to spicy foods and wouldn't overpower milder foods too badly.

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!
