look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy orange/amber with thick white head that settles into lacy skiff and ring. Fine lacing rides along side of glass. Moderate carbonation. Haze begins to clear as it warms.

Aroma: Banana and pear with citrus notes. Ethanol. Bready malt in background.

Taste: Caramel, biscuit and pine. Finishes with resony bitterness and sticky sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Malty with a bit of astringency.

Overall: Well balanced and tasty. It does have a homebrew quality to it ... meaning flavors arent as integrated as I would expect.

Poured into glass with good head and retention

Hops and citrus aroma, very pleasant

Well balanced for a strong hop IPA

Mouthfeel pleasant but a shade less rich than some

Great beer overall, needed to have a few times before I really appreciated it, will have again for sure.

BB Jan 1 2014. Just in time!?

Beer is almost opaque and dark amber in colour. Small white head, fades quickly. Some lace.

Nose contains some citrus hops, but more malt than expected. Caramel and bread are the strongest scents, with some light citrus fruits accompanying. Also a green grape scent.

Like the nose, the taste is maltier than expected, but not without a clear hop presence. Caramel blends with light fruits; some citrus flavours but no particularly fruit standing out. A bit of pine as well. Moderate bitterness, but a sweetness from the malt is there as well.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. Somewhat chewy.

Overall, fine stuff, but not remarkable in any way. Although this is being consumed prior to the BB, it is close. Might be that this would be better fresher - but Deschutes does not distribute to Ontario (generally), and beggars cannot be choosers.
