Bottle: Poured a deep slightly hazy orangey color ale with a super large foamy head with great retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of pine and light citrus hops with some caramelized malt is pretty good. Taste is mostly dominated by floral pine and citrus notes with light fruity ester and a pretty solid caramel malt backbone. Bitterness level is about average with quite a bit of floral undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Solid offering though I was expecting hops punch to be even more solid.

This is one of my favorite IPA's from maybe my favorite brewery. Pours a medium dark copper with a 1" head. Huge nose with lots of grapefruit and somewhat less orange. Very complex and well balanced - Deschutes has dry hopping down to a fine art. At 6.8% there is the expected defined alcohol warming - just as it should be with a big IPA. Very drinkable for 80 IBU with a note of carmel and a very subtle malt aftertaste. Exactly what I look for in an everyday beer - very hoppy but not so over-the-top that you can't drink 4 or 5 in one sitting. I'm happy to report I just loaded a 13.2 gallon keg of this into my man cave!!
