look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - clear copper, foamy head settled at one finger with traces of lacing all around
S - leafy and citrus hops, fruity sweetness, and toasted grains
T - leafy, earthy, and orange citrus hop notes, toasty grains, subtle caramel sweetness, just a little metallic
M - medium body, thin and crisp with a pleasant bitter
D - much more balance than many American IPA's make this very easy and tasty to drink, the more Deschutes I try the more they are becoming one of my favourite brewers

Best by 2/16/2011...

Dark rusty orange color. Small head with spotty lacing.

Grapefruit and orange peel hops are the dominant smell. Caramel malt and a different but pleasant smell of cola round it out.

It's a pretty tastey brew. There's tons of orange peel. The grapefruit is present, but not as noticable as in the smell. Toasted and caramel malts give this a stronger balance than most IPAs from this coast, but it still remains heavily bitter.

Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. Good carbonation and moutn puckering.

It's a very enjoyable and quality IPA. The alcohol is somewhat present, but doesn't detract. I'll definitely have this again.
