Got this bottle to drink fresh, and it is most definitely a worthwhile pickup, even for $6/bottle. Poured into a Spiegelau tulip.
Looks surprisingly dark, about the color of Alpha King - Deep amber. Nice pure white head with 2+ fingers thickness and great lacing, moderate retention. Clear body.
Smell isn't the most aromatic, but the citra notes are nice, with grassy piney notes complementing the citrus fruit flavors.
Taste is great, very hoppy, juicy citra flavors are great with a good malty backbone. Suprising the a 6% ABV IPA can pack that much flavor and balance.
Mouth is medium, with great carbonation, and smooth. Dry finish.
Overall a superb IPA, worth trying for sure. Wish it came in a 6-pack. One of Deschuttes better offerings, which is saying a lot.
