Amber colored, almost a half inch of head, solid clarity, loooks professional, white head. Hits with the woods, smells like pine forest, mild vienna like toasted malt too. Interesting.

Hops keep up, not tropical pungent, this is PNW c hops and something else to round it out. Bitterness is down, nice, allows the grapefruit and pine to glow. This is an enjoyable thing, glad Deschutes got back to dropping good pale ales on us, or at least changing with the times, although this one is just good, not necessarily in conformity with some of the proprietary hop trends out there right now.

Consumed 12/19/15

A: Medium caramel in color, with some amber at the core, orange around the edges - mostly clear - pours with a medium sized, off-white head, fades to a wispy cap, maintains a medium collar, leaves some spots of lacing

S: Light citrus and some pale malts - orange and ruby red grapefruit juice and zest - floral citrus with a touch of candied citrus - touch of fruit juice - pale and caramel malts, light sweetness - very clean overall

T: In a word, balanced - nice, soft citrus - tangerine and orange flesh with some ruby red grapefruit zest - lightly fruity overall - very floral, with some herbal notes - tea-like flavors - low level of bitterness - pale malts, caramel malts, light grains, light bread, crackers, light sweetness - definitely clean, definitely reminds me of Mirror Pond

M: On the light side of medium, medium carbonation, smooth, refreshing

O: A worthwhile trip

When I opened this, I was expecting an IPA. Once I realized it was supposed to be an APA, it clicked. This is brilliantly balanced with some nice hoppy flavors. This is definitely worth a try if you can get it.

Bought from Don Quijote 12oz. Orange copper color, smooth fruity flavor, seems lighter compared to other IPAs that are generally heavier making it a refreshing beer. I would drink this again.

Gorgeous ruby pour with ample caramel head. Viscous foam with great lacing down the glass. The smell is a bit subdued. Get some citrus, dank, earthiness, bready qualities. The flavor has more pop. More citrus, pine, earthiness. A nice balance of malts and moderately bitter. The body is medium-light with moderate carbonation. Very nice APA.
