12oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a reddish amber with a nice off-white head.

S: Nice, lightly spicy hop profile. Caramel malt, bready, light grapefruit.

T: Caramel, mild piney bitterness, biscuity, a bit peppery, pithy citrus, fresh grain.

M: Light-bodied with a bit of heft from the moderate carbonation.

O: I really like the malt profile on this one - compliments the restrained hops nicely.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I find red chairs in my living room to be a bit gaudy... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear copper topped by over a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises pine needles, grapefruit zest, orange peel, a touch of tangerine, and a hint of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, slightly rindier than before, but still pretty bright and enjoyable. A bit of grass is tossed in for good measure. Thee body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a very nice pale ale, one of the best Deschutes offering I've yet had.

This pours a semi-cloudy amber orange color with a slight head. The aroma is mostly hops mixed with a little citrus. The taste is smooth, malty, and complex. Initially there is this bready, toast, malt taste that then turns into a dry crisp after taste. Full of flavor and very well made!
