From a bottle into a pint glass: awesome deep amber color. Transparent. Beautiful lacey head of foam. Toast, citrus on the nose. Taste is really well balanced between toasty malts and hops. Excellent lingering hoppy aftertaste. To me this tastes like a pale ale that is just a bit more on the hoppy side. Like just about everything Deschutes does, it is flawless.

excellent balance. finally my first deschutes, and it's a biscuity keeper--though dangerously drinkable.

Nice orange/amber brew with small tight head. Lots of fine carbonation keep the head intact. Light aroma of malt, some hop notes come through. Hops are slightly stronger in the taste, but it’s mostly a malt party here. Smooth and drinkable.

Vintage 2014/2015 reviewed on 3/8/15
A: Copper liquid is a bit dark.
S: Good biscuity malt and some fruity hops.
T: Pleasant malt opening with some estery yeast notes that flirt with going too far but are still pleasant. Grapefruit finish - fully with pith and all.
M: Quite bitter finish, dry malt.
O: Very tasty
