look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a dark copper/amber with a finger width of foamy head.

Smell - Earthy and piney hops, caramalts, tropical fruits.

Taste - Nice hit of earthy/piney hops followed along with a balance of the malts and fruit. Good bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - A well-executed American IPA by Deschutes. Ranks up among the top of the American IPAs that I have sampled.

Rich copper poured into a pint glass with a 2 inch head that slowly fades into an inch lacing.
Pine scent, from the hops, citrus and some sweetness too.
Hop bitterness at its best! Some malt sweetness again in the background. Very fresh, very tasty.
A nice example of what an American IPA should be!
Highly recommended!

Purchased in a 6-pack 12 oz bottles at a local grocery store. Having one right now as I review it. Poured into a 12 oz Pilsner glass a clear amber color, with a small 1/2" head of white foam that dissipated within 5 minutes. Lacing noted on sides of glass.

There's a nice sweet malt aroma combined with very mild floral notes coupled with a mild or medium citrus aroma - grapefruit mostly to me.

There's a nice medium mouth feel with good carbonation. The taste is started by carmel malts followed by a moderate hop bitterness that lingers with a citrus note at the back end. Someone compared it to Stone Levitation. Close...similar in some respects; I agree with that comparison.

Overall, I think this is a very good, sound and mild west coast IPA. It's very drinkable and enjoyable.
