Little disappointed in deschutes. Then again, it's an ale. Not a great beer but not not a bad ale.

Deschutes is fast becoming one my favorite brewers, first Chainbreaker, now this. Hazy golden with silky head, thick lacing and active fine carbonation make for a beautiful beer. Aroma is light but taste come on with a nice light malt profile and minor hops presence. The whole package makes for a smooth and easily drinkable beer.

Slightly flecky bright pinkish-orange with very light tan rocky and chunky head of medium retention. A few yeasty dregs on the bottom. Aromas of grapefruit and mango in the bottle, but these make a little room for resin, grass, light vegetation, orange, caramel, and rind. Very basic blonde it would seem, maybe just a little tart. That's just the first second or so, a bit biscuity, some caramel. But then it hits you, vegetal, brothy hops half way through and all the way past the finish. Not overpowering, although I usually only notice these flavors in beers where they are overpowering. I quite like this unexpected shift away from standard citrus and rind, even though I enjoy that very much as well. Medium-bodied, half prickles and half suds, semi-smooth, crisp and refreshing, not too dry for the style.
