Bomber snagged across the border in Montana poured into a tulip. Reddish caramel colored like weak tea, with a tall rocky peak of meringue-like resilient light beige head. Foam for miles. Aroma is equal parts caramel malts and citrus/tropical hops. There is much going on in this here red ale, bold hopping like many of the best American reds but an assertive rich toffee sweetness underneath, with hints of molasses, puffed wheat, and a cola-like brown spice. Hops go from tropical pineapple and guava to orange rind, baby aspirin, tree sap, and fresh grass with nary a bum note. Excellent Amarillo showcase. Reminds one of Rogue's best red ales but sweeter with a slightly greater depth of character, not to mention less piney (this features more of a tannic black tea vibe). Sturdy body, with a smooth and slick mouthfeel and a red IPA style hop-centric finish. The end is where the bitterness truly makes its presence known. Well-balanced, tangy, fruity, and redolent with brown sugar sweetness, yet dries the palate before all is said and done. One of my favorite Deschutes offerings to date.

Well balanced, delicious. The malt is right on the money and not too cloying like some others. The tettnang / amarillo hop combo is fantastic with aroma and flavours of flowers and mandarin oranges.
