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.

Appearance: Clear amber with a modest head of foam. Good lacing.

Smell: Pine, grapefruit, and caramel.

Taste: Grapefruit, caramel, pine, toasty malts, grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a strong hop bitterness.

The Verdict: Very good. Well balanced, with plenty of hop character and a strong malt backbone. Everything an IPA should be.

12 oz. bottle from trade. Been wanting to try this one for a while now. Pours a beautiful clear amber red with a one finger off white and very creamy head. Looks like an amber. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral bouquets, some other orange citrus rind too. Flavor had a nice caramel and bready malt presence, a nice bit of bitter pine, some citrus character. Insanely drinkable and very nice, leaning more toward the APA style than IPA. Light to medium bodied, slightly resinous, with medium plus carbonation. A really nice every day type of beer that I would love to have available locally.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date of 4/9/14 on it, so it's still within the best before date range.

The beer poured a clear copper color with a 1-finger beige head that dissipated quickly but left lots of good lacing and a thin rim of cream on top.

Nice smell - a mix of pine, citrus, and caramel.

This is a very hop forward beer with lots of pine and citrus flavor without being harsh. Sweet caramel and toasted malts help to balance.

Smooth and creamy full bodied mouthfeel. Fairly high carbonation gives it some spritz as well.

I loved this one. Great smell, great taste, great feel. Another winner from Deschuttes.
