3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
~Fruity like guava aroma with pine, citrus and bready malts.
~Pours a slightly hazy amber color with lasting creamy white head.
~Guava fruit comes through in flavor along with citrus and some resinous pine. Well balanced with bready malts.
~Medium bodied with medium CO2, hoppy bitter finish that lingers.
~This is one of the better pale ales I’ve had in awhile. Really like the fruitiness that the hops offer and that the malts aren’t dominated by the hops.

bottle, pours a nice IPA gold with a big yellow tan head and lacing. Nose is a cross of malty ale and IPA, taste is malty and hoppy and a bit ’bright’, maybe over carbinated. wet finish. Interesting beer to be sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is a decent American citrus hops kick. Flavor is citrus rind with some pepper and caramel malts. Finish is bitter and herbal. This is a decent beer. Even though this is listed as a pale ale it is probably more hoppy then some IPA’s. The west coast hops shine here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think this may be a new beer from Deschutes. It was just okay. It could have tasted much better, but in the end it was just alright.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew has a very full bodied malty aroma with a nice hop compliment. Its a hazy reddish color with a small white head. Its very malty sweet with a good bitterness. The aftertaste is almost a hazelnut flavor. The body is a full body with a good carb. Not a bad brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear copper with a large soapy off-white head. The atoms has caramel malt, good amount of sweetness, spicy / herbal hoppiness and rock candy. It has a medium / thin body with a crispness and some semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with more dryness than the aroma with modestly toasted caramel malt, earthiness, spice, tea and a bit of biting hoppiness. The finish has a bit of what seems to mushy in a lot of Deschutes beers and a dry earthy hop bite. Pretty good.
