Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial.
Malt: Crystal.

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 04.29.14.

A: See through red/orange. Light head.

S: Slight grapefruit, blood orange. Subtle notes.

T: Citrus, flower, caramel, tangerine. Also slight graham cracker.

O: Citrus and floral sweetness comes on, followed by caramel and graham cracker, then tangerine takes over and lingers. I loved this one. This was also well balanced as all Deschutes offerings are.

Rating: A

Great session beer like the Mirror pond. Had on tap at Niche for the Deschutes dinner and this one seemed to be the favorite even over the Red Chair. It is a hard beer to come by unless you live by the brewery. Good citrus notes but not over whelming. I hate to use the word simple as it sounds boring. But it is a simple great little beer. Something you could have a couple of and be very happy.
