Solid IPA. Mother color is a deep, brownish Amber and the head is soapy and white. Fresh and piney hop aroma, some background citrus. Full bitterness and hop flavor in the taste...lots of intensity. Malt is there, but is behind the hops. Lingering finish. Warming underneath, and the beer could sneak up on you. Nice.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 1-15-15.

APPEARANCE: pours a lovely amber color with one-finger off-white head that dissipated slowly leaving a thin, almost unbroken layer of small bubbles, medium carbonation and significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: a delightful flowery nose, sweet molasses, pine, some pepper and bread.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet molasses and bread then a nice piney hop profile, there was some pepper in there too, the malt and hops are more balanced than most IPA's.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good IPA, it's more balanced than most but there is no mistaking this is an IPA, it's definitely sweeter on the front end than most and that really compliments the hops, this is my second beer from Deschutes and I'm really impressed so far, they make beer like I would make beer.....balanced. I would buy this again without hesitation.

Poured a hazy orange body with an extremely thick off white head which stayed around throughout the drink. Lacing on the glass was tremendous.

The malt aroma sticks out more than hops, but they are there. A bread like malt with a hint of sweetness followed by a hint of pine/resiny hops.

Very similar to the aroma. Caramel and bread like malts dominate the immediate flavor, piney hops linger in the background.

Very full and creamy mouthfeel, carbonation was spot on.
