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.
