Aroma: Grapefruit, lemon rind, and melon aromas up front. Light honey malt character. Clean fermentation characteristics.

Appearance: Nearly clear brick red pour with a sudsy and batter-like off white head. Head retention is good and sticky lacing clings to the glass.

Flavor: More grapefruit and lemon notes up front. A nice bitter foundation with caramel and bready malt notes surprisingly assertive. Balance is to the hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is bitter and lingering.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly oily, with moderately high carbonation. A slight carbonic bite and lingering hop astringency. All appropriate given the style.

Overall impression: A dark, maltier American IPA. This seems to be a real fusion of East and West Coast styles. I'm glad I tried it.

I was excited when Deschutes started distribution in KY and haven't been let down.

12 ounce bottle lightly chilled and poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Pours a ever so slightly hazy copper color with a strong lasting head.

S - A bouquet of citrus hops with a hint of malt.

T - A good sweet malty start with a long lasting citrus (particularly grapefruit) finish.

M - Rich feel but very clean.

O - An excellent American IPA that is definitely worth a try.
