I have had this on tap and am now drinking it from the bottle. On tap i found this to be a slightly sour IPA with not enough going on to really make it very good. It may also have been the 100 degree heat that made it so, but after the initial few sips from the tap version it started tasting like an IPA again.

This bottle version tastes as it should immediately. I think Deschutes does much better with bottles than it does with it's taps unless the bar uses Nitrous. I wonder how this IPA would fare with nitrous?

Anyway, I find this beer looks great, smells great, but wasn't quite what I was hoping for from an IPA made by Deschutes. I was hoping for something a little more robust with more flavor but this turns out to be an average hoppy hoppy ipa with not much more than hoppy flavor happening to me. it tastes like some great hops, and it feels good in the mouth... I simply find it an average IPA. I've had much better this year.

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!
