Well it's orange-tan, pretty cloudy, with a so-so head and lace. Looks aren't this one's strong point, but it does get better.
Aroma and taste were quite nice. A bit on the pungent side, fruity and a little piney, with a solid maltiness and a tinge of floral and fruity notes.
Tastes like a bigger beer than it is, almost like one of those kinda malt-bomb IPAs, but still drinking like a pale ale, and not heavy on the alcohol as far as how you feel after drinking it. This one is a bit strange in that it actually seems like it has more alcohol than it does. Not a detractor, just interesting.
Overall it's a tasty one. I expect nothing less from Deschutes.
