Poured a beautiful amber-orange with fluffy sudsy white head. BB date 11/06/13 on the bottle
Smell- musty tropical fruit, floral notes, bread, spice
Taste- smooth hoppy profile with citrus and some tropical fruit, and subtle floral. An interesting note of faint blueberry sweetness is somewhere in there. Savory toasted grainy malt with a dash of pepper and hop spice. Citrus and spicy hop resin linger on the palate
Feel- lightly carbonated, light-medium bodied. Drink a million of em

Hoppy, fruity, floral, spicy, malty. A wonderfully balanced and complex pale ale, great to enjoy in any season. Love me some Deschutes. Cheers

A very solid pale ale all around. Pours orange with amber highlights and nice frothy head. Smells of chewy malt with ample citrus hop nose. Also bready, slightly toasty malt aroma & flavor. Nice medium mouthfeel yet refreshing. Overall, a nice beer that could likely go with any food or any occasion.
