A little too malty for my taste. Darker color, bitter. Odd, not bad.

Well-balanced, floral and piney hoppy taste. For an IPA, the bitterness doesn't overpower this brew. There are some honey notes in the taste as well. Slight head with lacing. Honey flowery smell. Consumed from a bottle.

For an IPA, it was too malty and at the same time, not hoppy enough. Not a bad beer necessarily, but just not true to style.

It was a little darker in color and a little less hoppy than I was expecting...which was nice.

The foamy head held up well and I tasted sweet at first like honey, then mellowed out to a richer flavor. I enjoyed it overall and I generally enjoy all of Deschutes beers!
