From bottle, Amber beer with small head. Aroma of orchard fruits and malts. Taste is dry leaf, malts, some grapefruit and caramel. Really enjoyed this one.

Clean and spectacular for me. Everything I could ask for in a hop forward pale ale, of which I am not normally a big fan. Deschutes must have a fine, fine water supply for their beer, it always tastes very clean.

This is a 4.3 for real. Surprisingly good and not terribly malty

One of my faves, always look forward to getting this in the spring. A lot like their Fresh Squeezed but lighter and more subtle hop flavors. A really solid pale...definitely recommended.

Strong, deep amber color with a nice hoppy aroma. The hops flavor is not as overpowering as I find some IPAs to be, and has a nice little grapefruit in it as well. A good beer for a hot sunset.
