On tap in Portland on 7.10.13

Hops and yeast join forces to deliver a roundhouse kick of aromatics and flavor in version 2 of our Belgian IPA. Powerful citrus notes complement spicy yeast phenolics, with an aggressive bitterness that will Van Dammage your palate. Jean Claude would be proud.
IBUs 71 | Alcohol by Vol. 8.6%

Both the smell and taste were very fruity-ester-bubble gumish. Nice citrus background. Solid beer, but a bit much of the typical Deschutes hop profile.
