I got this beer from a BIF. I was happy to open a beer from my past. Deschutes was one of the earliest brands I drank even before I turned 21 while living in Oregon.

I poured this beer in a fat tulip glass. I got about two fingers of foam with some pretty decent lacing. Off the top I get a little bit of citrus in the nose. The bouquet on this beer is very understated... just a simple presence.

The body had a decent amount of english malt and hopping. This reminds me more of an english pale. This is an easy drinker. It is a pretty good offering.
