Enjoyed in a pint glass
A - Copper/bronze in color with a creamy one-finger head. Long lasting lacing.
S - Wow! Beautiful mix of citrus: tropical, mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Touches of toasty malt and floral in the background.
T - Very juicy fruit with just the right amount of malt to keep things from becoming overly sweet. Very faint hops on the finish.
M - Low-medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation. So smooth and balanced. This brew just slides over your tongue so easily. Very refreshing...one sip leads to another etc, etc, etc.
O - I really love this beer. Even with all the fruit notes going on the balance is on point. This beer is just so damn refreshing. Another winner from Deschutes.

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.
