Pours plenty darker than the typical single IPA color. Solid head with a few long moments of retention. Smells of citrusy and coniferous hops with a solid grainy malt base. The taste introduces a wave of spicy hops not often highlighted by northwest IPAs. Lemony flavors pucker the cheeks while super-roasted malts bring more bitterness. The prominence of the malts is a great change-up for this IPA, but their blackness is somewhat off-putting; it does not mix well with the bold hops. Drip dark-roast coffee notes from the malts fall on overwhelmed taste buds. The spicy and woody hops seem to be this beer's signature, and should take center stage in my opinion. The mouthfeel is just right in the mouth, but the finish is not clean and some malty thickness remains on the palate.

I like this IPA, but it does not stand up to some of the others I've tried during my short visit to Bend, Oregon. If the malts stayed more in the biscuit, grain, and caramel categories I would more ably enjoy every bit of the spice-ridden flavor. Cinnamon, cumin, corainder and other tastes abound in this one, and should not be overshadowed by any more bitterness than the hops themselves naturally offer.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is grain and lemon.
The taste is strong bitterness and malty.
The texture is thicker.
It's enjoyable.

On tap at the brewpub in Sisters.

Deep medium-dark red-amber with a fairly durable head and a ample streaks of sticky lacing.

Aroma: Herbal and floral hops. Soe citrus too.

Flavor: Medium strong herbal hop punch with building bitterness partially reduced by the malts.

Feel: Medium body with appropriate crisp carbonation.

O: recommended as a subtlely spicy IPA.

Not a bad beer by any means. No bottle on or best by date, as I'm assuming this is a bit aged due to all the floaties in the glass I poured it in.

If you were to tell me that this was a Red Pale Ale, I would have scored this a bit higher. Drinks as such.

22 picked up in Northern California ... Pours with a nice off white head and good lacing... the brew is crystal clear amber... probably too dark for an IPA..

Nose shows toasty malts and piney hops that don't quite keep up.

Good bitterness up front but the hops die back quick when hit with the maltiness... sorta lingering tropical fruity hoppiness on the finish...

Decent brew for sure... A bit muddy... the brewer needs to separate the malt and hops to make it more enjoyable.

Pours a deep Amber/orange with minimal head that's gone as quick as it appears. Smells is of pine resin. Tastes of sweet candy malt with a piney resin and light light citrus (lemon and grapefruit) in the background. Mouthfeel is wetter and heavier than I would have expected and it finishes somewhat wet. It's good not great.

damn good ipa. don't ruin it by NOT pouring a big ass head or by serving it freezing cold. leave it at room temp and then give it <5min in fridge, then just dump it in a glass and smell it while the head reduces.... great beer. was an a or a+ when poured at home in a pint glass and a c or c- when poured for me in a stupid chilled glass with NO head at the brewpub place in sisters.
