look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: A really beautiful amber color. A nice bubbly head that retained pretty well. Some sticky lacing remained on glass.

Smell: The only disappointing part of this beer. Very light hop presence with kind of an artificial/metallic aroma. There were some sweet hops to be found in the end of the aroma but not enough to bring it back.

Taste: This is really fantastic. The crisp hops bite at the front of this beer and yield to the creamy caramel body which makes this pale ale really fantastic. A malt thickness is on the undertones of this brew. The hop brightness blasts through at the end of this beer and makes it stick on the palette for a long time.

Mouthfeel: A very heavy malt feeling covers the palette. The hops are not too very pronounced on the aftertaste but overall this is very pleasant

Overall: Really awesome. Deschutes is making some incredible beer. I've been impressed with the wide range of their beer. Any of their products should do the job for you.
