From Jims. BB 17/07/14. Hmmm....

A - clear copper / amber. Two finger head, creamy, clingy lace.

S - malts and toffees rather than hops.

T - quite a blend of hops n malt. Makes me think more of a red ale than a pale ale. Caramels, butterscotches, toffee, in with a bucket of malt. Hops come thru, but only as it warms.

M - very light carbonation, creamy.

O - well made APA with little bittering hops, as such easy and smooth to drink. Nice. Could be fresh, could be less so, but than again I am not sure what Deschutes BB policy is.

A: reddish-amber color in a goblet glass.

S: mildly hoppy/citrusy.

T: mild yet full of flavor.

M: mild aftertaste.

O: a nice western IPA with very little hoppy aftertaste. Another solid beer from Deschutes, I just wish they were easier to find here in northern IL. My local store doesn't carry many of them, preferring to order more from Wisconsin brewers instead.
