Snagged a bomber at Rosauers Supermarkets in Missoula, MT. Wanted to try something new. This is my first beer from Deschutes. . .
Poured an awesome deep red color with a large 2 finger head. The smell was mostly hops with a hint of floral and citrus. Taste followed the smell and was very hop forward but still not overpowering. Overall this is an IPA that I could really enjoy even though that is not my favorite style. Would be a great beer to use to introduce someone to the style.

3.86/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: deep red hue, slightly red (although this is a dark bar), very thin head
S: fruity and bitter, freshly cut wood (elm?)
T: Immediate bitter bite, nodes of grapefruit, lemon-peel, and woody. The last sips were better than the first (maybe due to warming)
M: Tingly and dry (gingerale mouthfeel without carbonation level) Flavor sticks to the mouth longer than most.
O: Drinkability- decent. It is comparable to Surly furious with water-downed citrus. Head dissolves very quickly. Aftertaste is good at first, but stayed into the next lager. Not bad- would drink again, but not rave worthy.
Serving type: on-tap
