3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bomber bought from "lifesource" in Salem OR.
Pours a clear orange hued ale with a good sized frothy cream coloured head.
Nice enough hoppy aromas here. Floral and some citrius..goodish caramel malt backing.
Taste si sweeter than first imagined..like sweet clementines. Nice bitter hop in the back of the mouth balances it somewhat but not all the way.
Mouth feel is medium but i think the sweetness is a tad overdone and becomes a little cloying but not enought to make this a bad experience.
OK APA..would drink again if offered

Bomber. clear honey gold with a lot of carbonation floating up. A steady two plus finger head is off white. A classic west coast hop forward aroma plus crackers. A very nice complex fruit flavor. Just a hint of grapefruit with more citrus and tropical varieties. Really nice. Some cinnamon spices. Some experiments result in good beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance has a nice dark orange hue supporting a healthy head leaving fair lace. Smell of the hops with a sweet malt mixed with citrus. Taste has that sweet malt with a slight grapefruit in the back and a nice balance with the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A very smooth easy drinking pale ale.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial.
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 04.29.14.
A: See through red/orange. Light head.
S: Slight grapefruit, blood orange. Subtle notes.
T: Citrus, flower, caramel, tangerine. Also slight graham cracker.
O: Citrus and floral sweetness comes on, followed by caramel and graham cracker, then tangerine takes over and lingers. I loved this one. This was also well balanced as all Deschutes offerings are.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Although this is a Deschutes product, it doesn’t quite measure up to my expectations. It’s very drinkable, though. Mouthfeel was thin and oily and the finish was rather short.
