Deschutes Brewery Inversion – American IPA at 6.8% ABV

Deschutes Brewery Inversion American IPA at 6.8% ABV (C$3.75 at Zyn, 355 ml, best before 7-Jun-2015)

Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, citrus, catty, caramel malt, mild onion. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5)

Not my favourite implementation of starts-with-C hops. Too little bright citrus, too much mangy cat. Deschutes has done many better beers. (12/20)
