Hops: Cascade, Centennial.
Malt: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Pilsner, Carastan.

60 IBU.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.20.14.

A: 2 finger head with a slightly aggressive pour. See through red. Nice lacing.

S: Pine, caramel.

T: Flower, pine, caramel, sweet breadiness.

M: Crisp.

O: Deschutes seems to strive for balance in their beers rather than going full-on HOOOOPS like other breweries, especially on the West Coast. I do love hops, but it's nice to have APAs like this one, which is very well balanced. The hops are there, but there is a really great malt presence too. The flowery and piney hops come on first, then the sweet bready malts take over. The flavors wash over and over. This is an excellent beer.
