Smell, color, stood out immediately. 1st taste, interesting, demanded a second. This beer keeps you engaged. Becoming enjoyable and wanting a second & a third. I was surprised. This one will be introduced to friends in Texas. Perfect for Sailors and those who want to sail.

Hazy, dark amber color with orange and gold hues. 2-finger head with medium retention.

Firm malt, citrus, light pine resin, cilantro, cooked green beans and a mild earthiness.

Very dry from the hops across the palate. Citrus pith, hay, grain, mild floral and earthiness.

Medium bodied with a mildly coarse mouthfeel. Very resinous on the finish. Bitterness pushes the finish as it lingers.

The Deschutes Inversion IPA poured with a nice amber body and full fluffy head. The aroma held tropical fruits and citrus hops that held into the initial taste. With the tropical fruits and citrus on the front and a palette coating pine bitterness on the back with a heavier malt profile that added a hint of sweetness. In the end the Inversion IPA was a refreshing and solid IPA.
