She pours a somewhat hazy copper and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute and has some nice spider web lacing is left in the wake. The smell has some strong citrusy and piney hops with a fair amount of caramel backs up the nose. The taste is bittersweet as there is a very nice combination between the hops and the malts. It has a bitter citrus aftertaste and gets a bit malty as the beer warms. It has a semi-dry finish. The palate is light to medium and comes across fairly sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and good to me. It has a nice bitterness that assaults the tongue and mouth like a good AIPA should. Overall, good West Coast styled AIPA worthy of more pours.

From backlog. 12 oz bottle. The aroma and flavor are almost reminiscent of barleywine. Malty in the nose, good balance between hops and malt in the taste. Good, interesting IPA.

Nice beer which reminds me of drinking a Torpedo. I prefer this beer very cold in a frozen mug.

Appearance: fairly dark golden with one finger white head that dissipates slowly leaving nice fine lacing.

Smell: I get malts, hops and some citrus.

Taste: very good bitterness and great balanced flavors.

Feel: carbonation is great. It has a 'heavy' thick feel that I don't particularly prefer. It is a smooth IPA. Citrus bite is almost perfect.

Overall: very good experience and a great total IPA package.

This is my second go around with this beer. I just created a six at my local krogers and thought i'd drop a review..
The munich, caramel and pale malts really shine through on this one without dominating entirely and give the beer a very sexy almost burnt amber hue. Head a lil on the creamy side and a light tan. The malt and hops go back and forth a lil bit but the malt lingers with sticky sweetness and a lil resin from the floral hop goodness. Several hops are used in this beer, Centennial is on the list and is one of my favorite hops. You'd never know this an 80 IBU brew as it is very well balanced.
I have yet to be disappointed by a beer from Deschutes
