Again deschutes does not disappoint. A great fall seasonal. Nice quality mouthfeel. Very nice blend of malt and hops. What's awesome about this beer is the alcohol content does not obscure the taste of this beer. Just well balanced gives me the hops I love with sweet bready malts and spices. Love this beer! Will be getting more if I can find it again!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a big three finger off white head which slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: An earthy and toasty balanced aroma of earthy hops and caramel malt. Earthy German hops with some hints of grass, pine, and spice. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon, and melon. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and biscuit with yeast. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, an earthy and toasty balanced taste of earthy hops and caramel malt. German hop notes of grass and pine with some spicy notes. Citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, melon, and lemon. Sweet malt notes of caramel, grains, cracker, and biscuit along with some yeast. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat oily and very smooth.

Overall: A weird but pretty tasty mix of a Marzen and IPA. Nice blend of hops and malt sweetness.

Now that Deschutes has made its way into Virginia, the stores are pushing product and we consumers win!

A: It pours a pretty, rich amber colour with a fast-forming, rolling head. A mild haze, presumably due to the bottle conditioning rather than chill, as it was given a little time on the table top to warm.

S + T: Both the bouquet and the flavour feature a very nice balance of toasted malts and some fruity aromatics of hops. There's a note of spiciness that is apparent more in flavour--quite pleasant.

M: The palate feeling is solid--a medium body, but very clean. I'm not finding much of a 'slick' feeling that often appears in a number of brews. The carbonation is nice, giving just that little sting on the tip of the tongue and a refreshing finish.

O: I think one of my favourite aspects of this beer is how well balanced it is between malts and hops. Interestingly, the marzen style provides an interesting and, honestly, quite good dynamic to the IPA--which it certainly is. It does have some of the qualities of an English IPA, though there's a spiciness that is notable in a number of marzens that sets it aside and gives this a rather unique flavour. I enjoy this and will be adding it to the rotation.

Look: Amber, bubbly, thick off white head with good lacing

Smell: faint hops, malt, and caramel, pleasant

Taste: fruity, piney, malty, with that classic marzen flavor

Feel: medium carbonation, fits the beer well

Overall: I'm digging this beer, comes off as a fresh and hoppy Oktoberfest.

Hopzeit Autumn IPA brewed by Deschutes Brewery, with an ABV of 7.00% This American IPA pours out a nice deep golden amber color with a nice white head. There is a decent amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich hop bitterness, earthy grains and malts. You also pick up on some nice mild citrus flavors in the taste as well. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is, Bold with flavors, you first pick up a citrus, hop bitterness. Then a nice amount of earthy grains and malts. There is a lot going on in Hopzeit Autumn IPA. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down. It is really hard to pick up on the 7.00% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The body of this American IPA is a medium to heavy, but not to heavy. There is nothing overpowering about this American IPA, it has a nice balance to it. The mouth feel is Bold, Hoppy, Citrus, Smooth, Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm Hopzeit Autumn IPA a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Deschutes Brewery, did a real nice job with this American IPA. If you are a fan of IPA's look this brew up.

Pours a slightly cloudy harvest gold, nice lacing and froth.

Bready, toasty, euro hop smell.

Lots going on here, but it blends well. Toasted malt, european hops/traditional oktoberfest plus a hint of orange peel/grapefruit edge. Really a very nice blend of oktoberfest and IPA.

Mouthfeel solid, quite drinkable.

I feel like this is more of a hoppy oktoberfest than it is an IPA, but whatever you call it, they succeeded.
