Overall, a good beer. But this beer did not have my expected level of long lasting hop aroma for an IPA. Color is a good Bourbon brown with off-red under light; scent is not strong enough to me - sweet, pear scent, but was gone too fast; good taste, right on-par bitterness (60 IBUs); finish was clean and after-taste is very pleasant. Overall, I would recommend this beer. I would definitely try it if I can get a tap!!!

2 month old bottle - not bad for up here in Canada. Pours a not quite clear golden copper colour with one finger creamy off white head.
Aroma is piney with sweet citrus - orange, sweet grapefruit - up font but more sweet maltiness - on first try seemed a little underwhelming - second beer few days later seemed sharper.
Taste again has a little piney bitterness initially, but then balanced quickly by fruitiness - ripe orange, sweet grapefruit, bit of pineapple, and decent amount caramel malt. Bitterness quite subdued. Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy with fruity/malty sweetness and just hints of the piney bitterness. Really good.

24oz can poured into Duvel tulip. Picked it up at the grocery store for $3. BEST BY 12/05/18 stamped on bottom of can. So this still has a month in it.

Appearance - Pours massive semi-loose medium tan head with good retention and weak patchy lacing. The head is very good at retaining its shape, especially after it condenses and collapses a little. Deeply hazy light brown body with lots of fine suspended particulates. Very unique and interesting appearance for an IPA. Haven't seen many like this, as brown as it is. 4.75

Smell - Strong fresh hop. Lives up it its name 100%. Very bright and grassy. 4.75

Taste - Strong bitter hop up front but smooth and balanced with a lot of honey sweetness. No off characters. 4.5

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Expected hop bite up front but balanced throughout. Some astringency in the finish. 4.5

Overall - Again, lives up to its name well. Gives a strong impression of freshness. Very few if any off characters, and they're minimal at most. Strong but balanced. Manages to strike the uncommon quality of being both interesting yet having the potential to work well as a session brew. 4.5

I don't know if perhaps I got an older batch as there's no date on these bottles but the ratings on this one seem too high to me. Ok, it's brewed in Oregon so I should be expecting a west coast IPA instead of the Easts I've become more fond of... pours a very slightly hazy amber-orange with an active light beige carbonation which fades quickly to a thin covering. Looks like an amber ale. Aroma offers really nothing in the way of hops. Dominated by a sweet, slightly funky malt. Taste is just a little better. I definitely get some decent grassy, piney hops. With that comes some caramel malt, and the sip ends with a pleasantly biting bitterness I'd expect from a WCIPA. Not bad, but not outstanding. I'm not going to look into it but maybe many of the scores over 4 were given years ago before the number of excellent IPAs on the market really took off.

[Original rating 2013-06-15] Draft at the pub in Portland. Holy citrusy hops, Batman! I love citrusy hoppy beers and Deschutes has hit this one out of the park. 6.3% but tastes like much more. Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma: citrus. Taste: citrus.

Pours a deep amber and clear. Produced a nice foamy head with good head retention.earthy floral and citrus notes on the nose. Nice balance if hop bitterness and malty body. Medium body and clean.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Has a rich, dark amber hue that glows, fluffy and creamy large head that has good retention and lacing.

Aroma is very piney and lively upfront, notes of fresh citrus like oranges, cantaloupe, apples, peaches, mangoes, and of course grapefruit. Really floral and herbal too.

Much like the aroma. Some nutty malts add and balance the citrusy and piney flavors. Bitter aftertaste. Very smooth.

Pours dark. Not much nose. Decent flavor, more bitter than sweet. Opens up nicely warmer.
