A very nice IPA, but a bit too bitter in the overall flavor balance; needs bit more malt body to balance it.

Pours a dark amber with a nice head, unfiltered as well. Smells of oranges oranges and more oranges. The taste follows with bitter orange all the way through, some tropical mosaic taste as well. Smooth bitter finish with a short lived bitterness. Love this beer.

Have had this enough now to admit that it just doesn't quite work for me like it does for other folks. Sure, nice Citra/Mosaic in the nose, lightest touch of dankness, maybe a touch herbal, some super ripe fruit. It's kinda brisk smelling, if that makes any sense. This one bogs down a bit on the palate, though, due to some sweetness that just don't quit. I think I'd just prefer a different malt bill, less sweet, less crystal, something to let the hops really take over (and with a touch more bitterness).

Wow. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. Incredible and unusual flavors coming together here in perfect balance. It absolutely smells like grapefruit, with a little bit of the standard piney, resinous hop notes coming through. The taste starts with a little bit of sweet malt, then the piney and grapefruity hop flavors weave in seamlessly so that you almost can't even tell where the sweetness comes from. It really tastes juicy, which is not a word I've ever used to describe a beer before. It has this perfect base flavor of grapefruit juice, with just the right hint of bready, crackery malt coming through. Crisp, robust, and absolutely delicious. It manages to be light and refreshing without sacrificing complexity, and incredibly flavorful without sacrificing drinkability.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 12-2-15.

APPEARANCE: pours a beautiful amber color with some larger bits floating about, one-finger, off-white head with excellent retention, slowly dissipated until a thin unbroken layer of bubbles remained, significant lacing, medium carbonation.

SMELL: pine, grapefruit, caramel, and bread, very pleasant to the nose.

TASTE: initially sweet caramel, bread then assertive grapefruit and pine, nicely balanced, the 6.4% ABV is imperceptible.

PALATE: creamy, medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a special beer and my score will reflect that, the beer looked good out of the bottle, it's the best smelling beer for this style, the taste was assertive yet balanced between malt and hops, the mouth feel is creamy which is not common for the style, this is the best IPA I have had up to now and will be hard to top, I wholeheartedly endorse this beer and will make a point to tell all my friends, I have not had a bad beer from this brewer, Deschutes is on my radar, I'll be trying more for sure.

Beer has one of the best IPA smells. Stands out for sure with hints of fruit and citrus. Great mouthfeel and easy going hops make this exceptional. I need a cologne that smells like this beer.

Got this in a trade. Deschutes doesn't distribute out my way, so I had very high hopes going in. Thankfully, I was far from disappointed. Burnt orange out of the bottle, with a puffy white head. Citrus, tropical fruit, and pine resin on the nose, and magnified ten-fold on the palate. Great fricking beer.

The smell in the beer is amazing, smells like fresh fruit, oranges, grapefruit, mango. Taste is juicy and fresh, with grapefruit and other citrus notes. This is a solid IPA and am very happy to have picked it up. I will try to find again.
