Good size white head on a pale orangey body. Pleasant hoppy aroma, oranges and pine also some malt. Easy drinking, flavourful and balanced, similar tastes as the aroma with nothing standing out too much. Enjoyable.

Nice pour with fluffy, tightly bubbled head (good retention) and lively carb. Aroma of citrus and banana bread; I know this is a Deschutes beer. Taste follows suit; solid toasty malt backbone as well, and some herbal characteristics. 58 IBUs seem subdued until the aftertaste when the bitterness really hits and lingers. Well-balanced pale ale - flavorful enough to savor, yet just smooth enough to session. Not sure why they find this experimental - this is just a very good APA.

Bomber. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Nose is fruit, sweet citrus, floral. Flavor follows with maltiness, resin, and a bitter finish. A pretty typical pale ale; refreshing but not unique.
