COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s fitting this experimental pale ale was the first beer brewed at our Portland Pub. This XPA gets its bitter twist from Nugget, and Northern Brewer hops, then delivers a pronounced citrus kick from Cascade, Centennial and Citra hops. Consider this your next hop obsession.

Malt: Crystal
Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial

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.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot, orange/grapefruit), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Simple, plain, and mild, but pleasant enough. A bit doughy.

WVHouseofBeer (808) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Nice aromas and flavors of sweet fruit, mostly citrus. Not as bitter as many other pale ales but definitely sweeter. Body was a bit thin. A very good pale ale.

vadie (671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Un pale ale très malté. Pas trop amer. Facile à boire et très agréable mais rien de trop spéciale. Très bien équilibré. Couleur du cuivre avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme est du malt et agrumes mais c’est un peu sourdine.

jackfrost9p (258) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2014
On nitro. Really smooth and creamy. Nice floral and hop aroma with citrus and pine flavors. Would like to try bottled too.

AmEricanbrew (5800) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber color with ivory head. Subtle floral, citrusy hop aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Nice mildly bitter citrus, floral hop flavors with lightly sweet pale malt---good.

Gerbeer (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a yellow/copper with very light head. Aromas of brown sugar, rubber, dry fruity marmalade and pine. Flavors of toast, pine, and bitter citrus rinds. Clean, bitter finish but expecting more based on the aromas.

Westchesterco (908) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2014
On tap at Thai me up in Jackson Wyoming it is a clear light ambercolor with a creamy head due to the fact it is a nitrous. It has a pineapple aroma and the taste is light and bitter on the palate

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours an amber color with a floral aroma. Taste is crisp, clean, and slightly bitter. The hops flavor comes through with a mild fruit flavor. Served on nitro which gave it a slight creamy flavor.

Iphonephan (3190) - McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On nitro draft at a Thai Me Up. Pours a clear amber with a thick white head. Fruity nose. Malty notes. Soft mouthfeel. Smooth finish.

daknole (9053) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Nitro pour at mellow mushroom. Very fruity beer. Hops are pretty much lost in a maltier almost sweet pale. But it’s not bad at all. Very refreshing.
