On tap at the Local Taphouse.

Pours a red colour, head is white. Mild lace but decent on the edge. Nice.

Smells hoppy and pleasant. Touch of rubber, but nice citrus and resin. Mild, crisp. Touch of pine needle and dish detergent. Nice.

Taste is stodgier than expected, quite yeasty on the mid and back with quite a full body. Bit of pine and mild sherbet but yeah, yeasty and chalky. Not quite as much hop cleanliness as I may have expected on the back.

Slight tingle on the back. OK feel.

Not quite as bitter as it could have been, feels a little heavy as well.

Serving type: on-tap

I've bought a few six packs of Inversion and the first time I had one was at a party and I liked it.
Not much on bouquet and I'm not sure why as the rest of the beer is great. Nice head, lacing of foam down the glass, copper colored, good malt and not overly hoppy. A mild, slightly orange flavored hop. Again, good beer, can't go wrong, good quality.

The Inversion IPA is another solid offering from Deschutes. The beer poured a clear copper with white head. The scent had fresh hops that were more floral leaning. The taste was a nice combination of floral, pine and citrus. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer and could be sessioned.
