The other reviews here said it all, this one needs no further technical explanation. As a Mirror Pond fan, I must say that this one is at even higher level than the former great brew. It is a home run for Deschutes, much like the SF Giants 2012 season. It makes me glad that it's January, and I will use this amazing Red Chair brew to celebrate the upcoming SF 49ers Super Bowl win!

This is quite possibly the most balanced pale ale ever, no wonder it has such top level awards. The taste and hops are very similar to Mirror Pond, but there is the Grapefruity, orange, and even mango-ish explosion added to it, with a more amazing balance between the big hops, and toasty malt. It is a "perfectly complex" beer, a pinnacle of fine brewing ingredients and skill. A must have!
