So I love deschutes, they're probably my favorite brewery, but this is probably my least favorite offering from them, despite it still being a great beer. It isn't exactly purely an IPA though, I would say much less hoppy and more malty than I would expect an IPA to be. It's a great beer, but if you want a good deschutes IPA go for Sagefight or Pinedrops.

Amber color with little head. Nose is orange peel, tropical fruits, floral hops. Taste orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, hint of biscuit. Finish clean with lingering malts. Ass usual deschutes makes another great IPA. This one a nice balance of bitterness and malts to make it not as overpowering as some ipa's.

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