Sage Fight IPA from BEnd’s Deschutes Brewery can be summed up with two words.  Chewy and resinous.  From the photo of this thick bodied beer, you get only a suggestion of its enormous mouthfeel.  This beer is perhaps the most resinous we’ve ever had in Bend.  According to the a description sheet from Deschutes, both sage and juniper from the Badlands area east of the city of Bend.  We believe them!

With a thorough olfactory inspection, one can definitely detect aromas of sage and juniper.  Initially this beer is aromatic and attractive but one needs to long for a resinous chewy beer or this big IPA is a bit too much.    Get a taster and contemplate a full pint of this flavor forward and filling monster of a beer!  If you are interested, hurry down to the Deschutes Bond Street pub as it is only available there.

Cheers,

Bend Wild
