Surprise, surprise, Deschutes comes with another citrusy offering that is a joy to drink.

This beer is good-looking with it's pale, golden-colored liquid and two finger head.

The nose is citrusy and sweet and very much what I get on the taste buds too. It's almost sweet and creamy and like biting into a juicy orange, but the backend is resinous and bitter and lingers with a bit of dryness. Very well-balanced and really easy to drink. I enjoyed and could go through many a six pack.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows floral hops, confectionery notes, sweet malt and, interestingly enough, papaya.
Bittersweet flavours with honey and sweet biscuity malt followed by spicy, piny hops and an assertive, sharp bitterness.
Body feels a little watery and undercarbonated.

Serving type: on-tap

A- Pours a deep, clear amber in color with a large, off white head. Head is very frothy and retains a good long while. The lacing on this beer is probably the best I've seen, with a long, continuous latticework that I have only seen from nitro pours.

S- Hops are prominent in the scent of this beer. The main hops profile is a subtle, floral note followed by a pine scent that is a bit stronger. Not overly bitter or powerful, but enough hops to make themselves known.

T- Medium strength hops bitterness starts this one out and is largely piney in flavor. The bitterness picks up a bit towards the middle, with the pine flavors intensifying before a small amount of malt base makes its presence known. Hops start to fade a little towards the end of the drink and then lingers a little afterward.

M- Smooth and easy drinking, with a medium level of carbonation, this beer almost feels like an IPA. The prominent hop profile makes the drink a little slower than normal, but not substantially so.

Overall, a very good APA that displays good hop character of its home region. You can really taste the floral and piney flavors of the hops change as the drink progresses.

A: Beautiful translucent ruby-copper with a big foamy tan head.

S: Some nice citrus, cherry, orange, lemon and grass in the nose.

T: Taste is more malt forward, especially in the finish, but cherry, orange, citrus rind, lemon and grass are still present.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Another delicious hoppy beer from Deschutes. If you can find it, try it.
