4/5 rDev -2.4%
I had this three of these while visiting Bar Genrika in Boise. The bartender recommended it and he was spot on.
Served a classic Imperial Pint glass for only $4.50 (!), the beer was red/amber with a sticky beige head.
It had an inviting aroma of lightly roasted malts and some pine.
The taste tracks the smell. Good interplay between the sweet caramel malts and the hops. There is also an earthy element that I really liked,
The beer went well with the great Basque food that they serve at this great little spot.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
Pours a cool dark copper with some nice orange hints on the sides. There is a nice thick 1 inch head that is dense and soapy and as it slowly recedes leaves some nice sticky lacing on the sides.
Aroma is awesome with some nice bready and slightly caramel malt notes present and underlain by some good solid grassy, citrusy and also slightly piney hops. Very refreshing. Slight tangerine notes as well as some mango in there.
Starts off with some good biscuity and pale malt sweetness. Very nice slight caramel hints and some nice sweet bready notes. These malt notes are all wrapped up in some fresh and grassy hop notes. Nice piney notes mixed in with some nice slight citrus. Very well balanced and delicious. Very well crafted APA and a great gateway beer. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with a nice bitter finish.
Pretty good APA. Nice slight citrusy goodness with tons of delicious malts going on in there. Very nice offering.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of pine and citrus with a biscuity malt nose.
T - It tasted of nice bitter/piney hops with a citric kick. Good caramel and toffee flavors added a nice backbone.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.
O - No surprise another really tasty beer from Deschutes.

Pours almost clear golden amber orange. The medium sized light tan head left plenty of lacing.
Smell is mango and pine. Big and nice. More subtlety is need though, but I still liked it.
Taste is almost perfect mellow. Citrus upfront, a hint of sweet in the middle, and lightly bitter on the finish.
Test is light and smooth, as it should be, but it has more body and punch than some IPAs I have had. Was looking for a little easier drinking.
A great beer, as mentioned, it's as bold or more so than some IPAs, and while it has great flavor and feel, I still wanted it a little lighter.

4.5/5 rDev +9.8%
Pours a fine amber with generous amount of white head. Citrus is immediately obvious in the nose, but more of a bready malt than I was expecting. Taste follows with very up front hop character, citrus, mostly grapefruit and pineapple, but nice malt profile. reminds me of an American version of an ran. Very fine. Smooth mouthful. Overall my favorite beer of the winter. Solid all around, no weakness.
