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.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass.

Look: Hazy amber with a couple fingers of fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly into a film - a very good-looking beer.

Smell: pine, citrus

Taste: A mildly sweet malt in the fore with orange, lime, and pine and a moderate bitterness. Finish isn't as clean as I would like.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation

Overall: I remembered having this from a Deschutes variety pack over the summer and liking it a lot. This one doesn't quite match the memory, but it is still a pretty solid IPA. If I had a complaint it is the slightly off flavors towards the finish that combine with the bitterness. This sample was a bit past the best by date so I will have to try to find a fresher one to see if I feel any different about it.
