Bottle from Brewers Haven. Amber pour , medium fluffy head. Caramel malts and resinous hops. Can't quite place the flavors, IPA with some amber and märzen characteristics. Dry, bitter finish. Interesting.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of strawberry, peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, honeydew melon, lemon/orange zest, peppercorn, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of strawberry, peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, honeydew melon, lemon/orange zest, peppercorn, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of strawberry, peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, citrus rind, peppercorn, pine, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and a fair amount of lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Minimal warming alcohol as expected of 7%. Overall this is a good and unique IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink despite the aggressive bitterness. There wasn’t as much malt being showcased as I expected(especially with the Marzen influenced labeling); and I wish it wasn’t as astringent on the hop bitterness; but it was still nicely enjoyable overall.

Autumn IPA? Ok, I'll bite (I mean slurp). Nice balance. A nice marriage between Octoberfest and IPA styles that embodies the best qualities of both.

Interesting beer. Not too hoppy, although the hops are there. I expected more from the hops actually, being that it's labeled as an IPA. Lots of pear in the nose with a mild sweet nuttiness. Clean mouthfeel and pleasant on the palate. Taste matches the nose. Nothing too interesting for your active BA, but by no means a bad beer. Easy drinking and crisp for 7% ABV. The malt backbone plays very well with this one. I must say... it's a very balanced beer. Solid beer, but nothing to go out of your way for, which sucks to say when it comes to well balanced beers.

Look is honey orange with an off white head. Nice lacing.

Smell is herbal hops up front some pine and with a nice balance of biscuity
malt.

Taste follows the nose. Fruity and nutty but balanced.

Feel is a little deceptive for 7%, but not too light.

Overall a nice offering from Deschutes that is different than anything out there. Truly an Autumn IPA.
