look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance on this one is very impressive. A nice deep burnt orange amber color with a full head that diminishes but is present almost the whole way down. Tight spiderweb lacing holds on to the glass throughout the duration of this one.

Smell isn't too powerful but what is there does smell good. Sticky and sweet, the hops and caramel malts are most noticeable. Some burnt aromas are present as well. Citrusy fruits are also present of course.

This beer tastes a little stronger than it smells, most of the same aromas are present while drinking. The burnt taste is slightly present towards the middle to end and is a little undesirable imo. However the rest of this character profile makes up for it. I'm really enjoying the balance of sweet malt and bitter/citrusy hops.

Mouthfeel on this beer is near perfect. It is medium to full, very smooth and very even the entire way down.

Drinkability is decent on this one. I would definitely be able to drink a few more (if only I had easy access to Deschutes).
