Gorgeous pale - a yeasty amber - subtle hop flavor with delicious sweet finish, lower bitterness than many other Oregon fresh hop ales, a true subtle pale but really tasty

Deeper gold pour, well done but pretty run of thr mill: dry citrus hops, mild alpha oils, some stonefruit rind - nothing astringenI or "off" but gets lost in the crowd

Poured from 12oz bottle into Seidel Mug. Enjoy by Christmas 2017.

L: Tawny, quite clear, fingers width of off-white foamy head that has above average retention. Lacing is very nice.

S: Smells of citrusy and leafy hops. Simple yet clean and fresh.

T: Again, nice citrusy grapefruit, not bitter at all, leafy undertone. Fresh and clean.

F: Light, lacking some carbonation.

O: Disappointing after a nice start.

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!
