Had on tap at the yard house in san diego
A - Deep golden amber with thin head with nice sheets of lacing left behind.
S - Nice citrus tropical notes with some floral piney hops. Nice bold notes.
T - Has some nice tropical noted with some grapefruit flavors. There is some nice malts to add body in the middle and some nice floral aromatic hops. Had nice bitterness at the end.
M - Medium body, nice carbonation, well balanced with a nice bitterness and resin feeling left behind.
D - Thought this was a good beer, nothing over powering but was a good beer that I will search out again. Another good one from Deschutes,

12 oz bottle, BB dated Oct. 2014, purchased and consumed near Bend, Oregon.
Poured with a semi-durable, frothy head over a deep amber body; excellent clarity; OK retention; Very good lacing.
Aroma: fruity with hints of spicy hops.
Flavor: Fruity/juicy hops with balancing caramel and medium malts. Herbal/grapefruit aftertaste is mildly bitter.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.
O: a fruity an slightly mild APA.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle (from a mixed six pack) into my tulip glass. No date on bottle. Is it normally on the six pack container? Anyways, 1 finger of a pure white head (no retention, though), over a nice reddish copper body. Not much aroma on the nose, however a slight citrus hit on the end. Tasted some citrus, however, and also some of that nice piney astringency. Very crisp taste, and nice balance of bitter Consistent light carbonation and an overall light bodied brew. Good mouthfeel (for an APA style). Nice expected balance from Deschutes... would have liked a bottle date (if only to know if this was super fresh, or if I needed to do some more hunting. Overall a good choice for a lighter pale ale style (as I am a huge fan of big IPAs).
