Another impressive buy from my Ohio buying spree. So glad to have finally gotten to try some of Deschutes' offerings. This apa pours a beautiful reddish brown hue with very little off white head. It does retain a nice film and a very nice lacing. The nose is quite deep and malty but with a pleasant hoppy bitter bite and a little roastiness. The mouthfeel is very light and smooth. Almost a bit too light. I'd love a little more coating and chew to this beer. Maybe if it was unfiltered, this may be perfect. The flavor is very balanced. Malty sweetness, hoppy bitterness, and an almost funky belgian yeast flavor all play together beautifully. This is an excellent apa and just makes more excited to taste the other two Deschutes offerings I bought last week.
