Darker than most IPAs, resounding with an amber orange and light tan head.
Citrus zest most apparent on the nose, followed by pine.
Aggressive, raw, unrefined compared to many craft beers. Spicy and peppery hops, citrus zest, underscored by a sweet, toffee-like malt. Really growing on me.
Unique creaminess in the mouth - like a really great Friday night whipped cream.
Having had the first four over the past week, these have really come to reveal themselves as a great beer. Unique from many crafts though.

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!

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.
