Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep amber with a frothy off white head that settles and laces quite well.

S: Pine, some floral and herbal notes, light citrus, and a little malt sweetness.

T: Pine and floral hops up front, a little citrus, maybe even a touch of fruitiness, with some caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Maybe not my favorite, but another solid brew from Deschutes.

T - Starts off with sweet malts and moves into the hops which are fruity and piney. Finish has some bitterness.
