I've had two renditions of this beer: brewed for the local Dirty Half Marathon sponsored by Foot Zone. The first was clean and hearty - 6.9% and something I would want again. I left with a growler (2012). The 2013 was murky, not as clean and left me dreaming of last year. They also dropped to 6.7% and 60 ibu's. As a distance runner, here's hoping that 2014 is a little more endurable!

Had this on tap at Deschutes Public House in Bend, Oregon on August 31, 2007. This beer was brewed to commemorate the down and dirty ½ marathon (or something of the sort). Drank out of a Deschutes Inversion IPA pint glass.
Appearance- Pours murky dark amber brown with zero head. There was no cap or lacing of any sort.
Smell- Nice big hop nose that has a dirty, almost Belgium-ish mustiness to it. There is also a big toffee sweetness to this brew that is very candy like.
Taste- Starts out with a very cherry/blackberry sweetness that, like the nose, is candy like. Does balance a bit as the hops kick in but it never seems to lose that sweetness until the finish. As the beer warms the alcohol does show a bit more but so does a nice caramel sweetness. The hops make there final kick in the finish as they leave a huge bitterness on the tongue. This beer would be the little brother of Devil Dog from Laughing Dog Brewery (a DIPA).
Mouthfeel- Beer is medium to full bodied with little carbonation.
Drinkability- Although ugly and kind of sweet, this beer is pretty good. It was the first beer I had at Deschutes that night and Im pretty sure I couldnt taste the rest of them. Good call.
