A: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin, creamy off-white head.

S: Gentle aromas of biscuits, caramel, cream, orange, tangerine, pine, lemon, and lime are present on the nose.

T: Notes of herbs, pine, lemon, lime, bitter orange, tangerine, kumquat, grapefruit, cream, caramel, biscuit, and cracker fill the mouth. The finish is nicely balanced, leaving a pleasant mixture of biscuit, cracker, pine, orange, lemon, and lime flavors to assert themselves.

M: Medium-bodied and sticky. Carbonation is firm and prickly.

O: A fairly typical Northwestern IPA, but also a really strong representation of its style. This is the kind of IPA that is capable of reminding longtime fans of the style just how nice a clever balance of malt and hops can still be. Recommended to established fans of the style and IPA neophytes alike.

Great citrus scent. Smooth drinking Ipa. Not quite Fresh Squeezed but still a very solid IPA

Good, not great APA. Nice hop / malt balance. Still doesn't quite meet expectations.

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Nice copper beer with good texture and a rich white foam. Strong citrus and lemon scent, with noticeable hops aroma. Flavor is full and tart, crispand smooth texture and easy to drink. Overall good IPA offering.

This is an IPA for the masses, but since it is from Deschutes, it is a bit better than average (just a bit). Deschutes, you can do better than this.
