3.8/5 rDev -9.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Amber red/brown color. Head of a finger on the pour that was present while drinking. Medium active carbonation. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.
Smell: Solid body of fruity hop tones which mix well with the more grounded, rounded mosaic hop tones. Earthy malt really shines on the body. Tones of caramel and molasses show up on the back end.
Taste: Bright tropical fruits hit the palate first. Those quickly yield to a earthy hop flavor. You really get a distinct profile of the Citra and Mosaic hops on the front. The body is caramelized malt which compliments the Mosaic hops well. The finish is a mild bitterness with lingering fruity hops.
Mouthfeel: Overall pretty heavy feeling on the palate. Carbonation is mild but present.
Overall: Another solid brew from Deschutes. Glad to see this one in the six pack format. Citra and Mosaic hops seem to be very different but come together well here. The bright fruit tones from Citra are balance and held together by the earthy Mosaic tones.

4.03/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/7/14
A clear dark amber with just a couple visible bubbles but a well sustained thumbs width of foam leaves 6 pencil thin rings before falling, looks sexy
S grapefruit, melon, tangerine, bruised mango, has a fruit candy thing going for it, gummy bears? floral notes, some spruce and caramel
T juicy, lots of caramel, some lime rind, still has a candy thing going for it, balanced for a West Coast IPA
M medium bodied, creams up just stopping short of foam, just a little grit, gummy bears and citrus rind on the finish
O solid IPA, not exactly a palate wrecker like I was expecting but an easy drinking IPA with a solid malt backbone keeping the hops in check
I'll have no problems with the 5 bottles I have left in the fridge but at over 20$ a 6er it might be tough buying another 6 with better IPA's on the same shelf for less money.
