Brillant gold with aromas of bready malt, floral citrus hops, balanced. Much follows in taste with a definite pine resionous medium body. Very session like ipa even at 6.5%. Pops more when fresh. NW IPA and a great example. My favorite from Deschutes.

Bottle.

Cloudy amber with 1-finger head which disappeared quickly, well carbonated Pine aroma dominates with citrus in the background. Taste amplifies the aroma—pine and hops in front and hop bitterness following in the finish.

It's appearance is an interesting (but somewhat sickly) yellow, but don't let that fool you. It smells of spruce and pine needles and tastes about the same, with very smooth and pleasant hops behind it. It is a pleasant beer that is easy to drink and always refreshing.

Poured into 24 oz glass mug from two 12 oz bottles. Average looking clear amber colour and average hoppy/slightly piney aroma. Taste is a step up from aroma, hops and a little earthiness with hints of maybe pineapple and mango. Goes down smooth with a slight aftertaste. Not a bad backyard BBQ beer. A little better than average. Prost!
