Served from the tap into a pint.
A: Dark amber in color with a light sticky foam.
S: Light citrus smell over a heavier citrus and floral punch. A small hint of woodiness like an amber.
T: first taste is of a sweet and floral . Then the hops flavor washes over the tongue. The hops flavor mixes with a rich woody oaky flavor. The beer finishes with a zesty fruity grapefruit.
M: Great texture. Not too chewy, but just enough texture from the roasted malts. Finishes very clean and, in a mouth watering sort of way, leaves you still thirsty wanting more.
O: I really like this beer, but I think I remember this more fondly than it really is. Maybe it's because I've had more pints of this than most of the non-seasonals from Deschutes so I'm numbed to it's greatness. Maybe they changed the recipe over the last couple years. I don't know. This beer still is very solid. It's no longer my favorite, but its toward the top of the list though. A word of warning, the bottle serving is a tad too bitter and woody for my taste. Though still good, the bottle just doesn't seem to finish quite as clean, diminishing the best quality of this beer. During spring, this is my go to beef unless there's something new on another tap.
Serving type: on-tap
