on tap at PDX pub

pours dark copper with a sheet of light tan foam. Smells like cardboard, a hint of anise seed and some resin - not impressed. Flavor is hearty malts with some diacetyl butter bomb flavors. I'm so confused by this beer - not up to Deschutes standard any day of the week, particularly on a style they've mastered in the past. The body is smooth with fine carb and an off dry finish. I could live without this one. Hope my taster was off on this one.

Imbibed on tap at Original Gravity during their Deschutes tap takeover, 2/11/13.

Pours a golden amber, slightly bending the style a bit here. White one finger head settles to a one bubble layer clinging to the glass. Not much lacing because of this. Aroma is hop forward with citrus and pine. I get slightly doughy biscuit with a swirl. Flavor is similar to aroma except the barley comes through more and there is an undeniable sweetness. The feel is thick, which reminds me of honey all too much, as it grates on you after a whole. Finish is balanced. I'd like to have a pale ale to be refreshing, not syrupy.

Delicious. Could be a little hoppier.
