Pours a clear dark amber with a white head. Smells of caramel, fruits, sweet malt, and fresh hops. Tastes of mild citrus, light fruits, sweet bready malts, fresh and non bitter hops, and spice. Medium in body and medium-light carbonation. Overall an incredible wet hopped APA.

Crystal clear burnt gold with a fuzzy off-white blanket leaving a nice wall of lace.

Smell is dank and sticky orange candy with hints of pine and grass.

Taste is bready pine, orange and grass with a little sting of bitterness, onion and PEZ.

Crisp when chilled, smoothing out to a big froth with a semi-dry finish.

For starters I love Deschutes Brewery - so I was a bit biased when I purchased this. Aroma wasn't super impressive - I have a bad sense of smell so I'll chalk that up as "user error" other reviewers are talking about tropical notes, citrus yatayatayata but I didn't pick up much on the aroma. The taste (this is what counts folks but hey I do appreciate a nice hop aroma though) is great, nice and clean finish with a decent hop bite. Mouthfeel is good, carbonation is nice and smooth. The color is a bit more amber than I like and there is some caramel notes on the malt backbone but nothing too over powering. This is a great APA - definitely pick this one up if you can.

An excellent beer! Had it on draft in a pint glass. A dark Amber color with a great head and excellent lacing. Very fragrant with a sweet floral smell. The taste is nicely malty with a pleasant sweetness and a great spicy finish. Many tastes involved here: earthy, berries, cherry, cola, cinnamon, cardamom, fresh and sweet. Enjoyed it very much!

An amber colored beer with an off white head that leaves uniform spots of lacing on the glass. A nice bready yeast aroma with caramel sweetness, floral notes, pine and citrus. The taste is not as sweet as the aroma and has more citrus and noticeable bread flavors. The beer finishes quite dry with a nice pine bitterness. This is a tasty beer.

355ml bottle poured into tulip.

Pours a deep, clear honey amber with one thin finger of beige head that leaves splotchy lace as it recedes.

Smells of grapefruit rind and blood orange zest, sweet brown bread, hard water and flowery, piney hops.

Tastes of muddled bitter citrus oils, more bready malt, pine needles and more floral hops.

Feels soft and frothy. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Finishes dry.

Verdict: Recommended. Good enough.

Bottle dated "best by 12/26/16" into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin eggshell-white head. Initial impression is pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus - nicely balanced by a touch of malt. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Finish is slightly bitter. Very good flavor. Perhaps not the best APA I've ever had, but I would revisit.
