12 oz bottle dated best before 11/27/12. Served in pint glass. Beer pours deep orange amber with a medium orange-white head.

Aroma is mild and hints of a fresh hop presence and a substantial malt body. Flavor is seriously big on hops. Citrus zest and dry. Very west coast / PNW kind of IPA. That said, this beer isn't particularly "pale" or otherwise grapefruity like a traditional American IPA. I'd go so far as to say this is more of a imperial red ale or American strong ale. While the flavors in this big beer are very enjoyable, and there's no detectable alcohol burn, IMO the total ABV hurts drinkability of this otherwise very refreshing brew. Which is sad because it's so tasty I'd really like it to become my go-to PNW high-IBU ale. I guess what I'm saying is this is a great beer and it's a shame it's not my new session IPA. Or maybe I'm just in the mood for something a little lighter today.

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!
