Poured from bottle into pint glass. Live review.

A: Pours a beautiful clear dark amber color with a one finger creamy head. Nice lacing. Amazing looking IPA.

S: Sweet malts with herbal and floral hops. Slightly earthy with a bit of lemon. Nice balance.

T: Sweet and toasty malts with a nice hoppy finish. Floral aftertaste with a nice bitterness that lingers. Lemon citrus note that really completes the flavor. Great balance! 

M: Medium body. Very creamy texture but not sticky or chewy. A little light on the carbonation but that is a very minor defect for such a great IPA.

O: Overall this is an amazing brew. Great American IPA by Deschutes. Easy to drink and very enjoyable. Perfectly balanced sweet malts and floral hops. This is easily a go-to IPA whether on tap or in 6 packs at the store.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Bright and clear, deep amber, just beautiful. Two fingers of creamy, off-white head.

S - Light citrus, lemon, toasted malt, and floral hops.

T - Sweet toasty malts, earthy pine hops, caramel, and fresh citrus. Moderately bitter finish, with soft grains and fruity yeast notes lingering.

M - Very creamy and smooth, medium bodied. Mild carbonation.

O - There is a great balance to this beer. I love the earthy, pleasant hop profile. And it's insanely drinkable.
