Notes: This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of Citra and Mosaic hops. Don't worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

4.19/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Deep hazy golden orange with a beautiful white head.
Smell: Crisp and fruity; strong orange and mango scents.
Taste: Very citrusy notes of orange and grapefruit with mango on the finish. The level of bitterness is perfect, as it allows the fruity characteristics to come forward while staying crisp and refreshing.
Feel: Very light, but sort of sticks around in your mouth for a while.
Overall: Really nice IPA that's well-balanced and fruity and refreshing.

19.2 oz. stove top hat can from Plaid Pantry in West Salem.
Amazing this world class beer is available at PP after midnight among the bums, alkies and general wastrels!
Pours a dark amber..slightly opaque..nice bubbly off white head..turns to copious lace.
Aroma is of caramel and fresh honey malts along side floral and dank hops. Great stuff.
Taste is very similar to the aroma..but has some juicy hoppiness as a surprise.
Lovely semi thick mouth feel..nice for the cold weather.'
A great IPA perhaps the best convenience store beer ever!

Pours a ruby grapefruit orange with off white head. Crystal clear. Some candied citrus on the nose. Loads of candied citrus in flavor, it's a little malt forward, with some sweet caramel, and finishes with a touch of shallot/red onion sharpness. It's a solid WCIPA but doesn't really err higher than that.

Clear amber copper color, creamy off white head, pine and citrus in the nose, resiny pine flavors, medium body has a crisp carbonated feel on the tongue, sharp bitterness in the finish, seems a little bit rough, not as good as I expected, still not bad.

Several fingers of infinitely creamy head settles in over a burnt maple stew. It's a pretty and striking beer. This particular sample is nearing it's expiration point, so the smell is a bit muted, but it's still awful juicy. Pineapple, mango and sticky sweet malt. Taste is a bit odd and overly sweet, but that's probably a symptom of it's age; faded hops and the abundance of malt left over that was originally intended for balance. Maybe I shouldn't be reviewing this one. At the very least, I'll have to make an effort to revisit it sometime in the near future. What's here is still a mighty fine beer.

brown color (it's not pale), clear, white heads, some lacing,
smells and tastes piney - yes it feels fresh, like fresh grass, sweet malt and bitter hop balanced well.
creamy mouthfeel, medium-full body.
I can see this is above average, a well made traditional west-coast ipa. only to me, flavor-wise there's no emphasis on anything, feels like it has no personality

I love this beer so much so I figured it was time to review it as I can finally buy it locally.

Pours a beautiful amber with a reddish hue to it. Solid head at pour that leaves behind some lacing and then thing creamy head that persists. Now my favorite part of this beer has a super unique smell that is indistinguishable to me. It’s like orange, blue spruce but also refreshing lime/lemon hint. Taste follows aroma with orange rind becoming the dominating flavor to me. Incredible smooth creamy mouthfeel from perfect carbonation, beautifully balanced bitterness and nice and resinous.

It’s hard for me not to be bias but this beer is about as perfect an ipa can get for me. It’s balance every where and chock full of flavor while still being drinkable. The ideal abv for an ipa to me too.

4.08/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 19.2 ounce can into my Bud Nascar glass.

Look - A beautiful clear golden amber body with a lovely soft eggshell head. Mellows out into a fine cap of light bubbles.

Smell - Lovely floral citrus air that wafts deep into my nostrils. One of the best things I've smelled this week. Like a fresh glass of orange juice on a spring morning.

Taste - I was very excited based on the smell, but the taste isn't nearly as nuanced and brilliant. The citrus is more bitter than the sweet nose, and the floral is replaced with a dirty earthy backbone.

Feel - Silky smooth, perfect amount of carbonation. A great mouthfeel. The bitterness sits on the back of your tongue in a very pleasant way.

Overall - I love almost everything about this beer, but the taste is pretty run of the mill. The look and smell are top-notch though.

Pours a cloudy bronze/deep orange color with a two finger white head that dissipates quickly. The smell of grapefruit is the dominant aroma coming from this beer along with a fair bit of caramel malt & pine. When I first smelt this beer I was afraid it would taste to much like grapefruit for my liking, but surprisingly this is has a very clean hoppy taste that balances out perfectly with the malts. Medium-bodied with a heavy feeling, goes down exceptionally well. This beer is hands-down one of the best among many IPA's out there.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from can into tulip glass a huge creamy beige fluffy head filled the upper glass. Color is cloudy amber golden. Head settles to thick 2 fingers with small bubble lace.

Mellow grapefruit hop aroma with warm caramel malt on the nose. Soft light carbonation in the mouth with medium malty body and nice grapefruit scented hops. Beautifully balanced between malty mouthfeel and tasty medium bitter dryer aromatic hops. Slightly warming character.

No overly grapefruit bitterness or strong pith, just brightly lit caramel malt make this one of my favorite IPAs. The balance is what makes this beer so appealing. My personal favorite IPA on my new beer exploration journey after 40 years of being an oenophile (aka wine nut).

-beautiful deep amber body and an off-white/cream colored head with high retention that fades to a patchy cap of foam
-hop. extremely juicy, dank citrus hop. deep dark brown sugar burnt caramel malt backer that sweetens the bittersweet hop that fades to the earthy pine bitterness that harkens classic IPAs.

insanely well balanced experience, but heightened. like having the music EQ turned to bass, treble, and mid all the way up.

A very nice, more traditional IPA. ABV is not too high and flavor is well balanced. Nice reddish color, hoppy, malty, bitter. This reminded me a bit of Sierra Nevada Celebration. yb

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze.amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of mango's, some guava and peaches. Taste is nothing like the aroma. Melons dominate, hints of mango, considerably bitter. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it ain't bad, but I was expecting more based on the reviews here.

Fantastic fresh on tap. Attractive copper color, or perhaps a transparent deep bronze with hues of orange and brown. Two fingers of thick white foam that completely covers the surface even after it settles. Great balance of hops and malt. Lots of citra and mosaic hops lend notes of citrus fruits and pine. Terrific roasted malts add more yeast and bread and caramel than most IPAs. Creamy and chewy mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Reminiscent of Alpha King, but lighter and spritzer. Outstanding, even a world class beer.

Draft pour (kegerator, not sure when kegged/tapped) into a pint glass

L: deep amber brown, not a color I’ve seen in an IPA in a long time. Medium white head, thick white lacing

S: sweet, malty nose with some tropical fruit aroma. Bit of piney bitterness as well

T: great mix of tropical hoppy flavor while maintaining some nice maltiness and west coast IPA characteristics. Get some papaya, guava, piney/earthiness as well. Medium finish, great bitterness

F: medium carbonation, medium body, slight drying bitterness, mouth coating

O: great IPA, great contrast from the standard hazy brews of late but with the fruit-forward tropical hop nose and swallow

Pours a cloudy amber color. Smell is pine, vanilla, honey and light hops. Taste is sweeter than expected. Vanilla, honey, brown sugar followed by oranges, light lemons, and pine. Overall nicely balanced between sweet and citrus.

From a can. Soft on the palate with a sticky hop finish. Nice balance and pleasant aftertaste. Above average, but not outstanding. I wouldn't turn one down.

When fresh, absolutely wonderful beer. Great in the glass, white head, fruity smell, well balanced, I agree with the (current) score of 95 (when fresh!). A lot of centennial hops - I grow centennial hops, its amazing they can get the fresh crushed hop experience into the beer (must take a lot of hops).

I had to revisit my initial review and up the numbers because, of course, I had another and it hit me a little different. This time it was great!

A deep gold with slight haze. A nice two finger foamy head

Smells piney and fruity and floral at once, very nice

Tastes about the same as smell with an added dimension of a smooth tropical fruit like mango or papaya or passionfruit, depending on your take. Not too bitter of a finish

Feels nice and rich, thick umami. Leaves you feeling just right.

Solid workhorse IPA

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pour: 1 pint can poured into a wine glass.
Head: Beautiful rocky 1/2 inch head that dissipates in four to five minutes. Thin white rim remained with beautiful lacing after swirling the beer around.
Color: Clear, dark copper.
Aroma: Strong fruity aroma of plums, pine apples, custard-apple (sugar-apple) is the primary aroma. Mixed feelings due to the slight, very slight, pissy smell in the background.
Taste: Sweet fruity taste consistent with the aroma in the beginning. With mild hoppy grafefruit like taste in the middle, and a clean medium body to light finish at the end that seems to evenly coat the mouth.
Carbonation: Light to medium and does distract.
Would drink again? Yes

Rating from notes. Consumed May 2014. "A fantastic showcase of Pacific Northwest hops with bold aromatics and a beautifully balanced palate. Definitely one to seek out. Deschutes never disappoints."

Pours a copper color with about a half finger of head. The nose has both citrusy and piney notes. The flavor has a nice sweetness upfront that seems to be coming from both a citrusy essence and the healthy malt backbone. The finish is plenty bitter for a single IPA.

This is very a very solid and drinkable example of the style.
