Deschutes Inversion IPA
Deschutes Inversion IPA with my lunch. The beer pours a copper color with a frothy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of lemon, pine, spruce, and caramel. The taste is bitter with lemon, lots of pine, and spruce. Pepper arrives on the finish, and the beer has a solid caramel base that is overshadowed by hops. The alcohol content is 6.8% ABV. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, especially in the style. It had a great fresh flavor and a prominent bitterness with a backbone that stood up to the test.
