Strong caramel/crystal malt lends a sweetness that overpowers the English hops a bit too much. Other than that itís a pretty solid take on the style. Iíd love to try a version with the abv dialed down to a more style appropriate level.

On tap at their Downtown Portland location - Pours copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has bready English malt and light earth - very clean. It has a medium smooth body thatís almost creamy and has soft carbonation. The flavor has toastiness, nuts, bread, must and earthy English yeast. The finish has phenolic spice and crackers. Good bitter.

When in Rome...er....Bend, Oregon, get rad with the locals. The local champ and for good reason, this capped off a goal of trying 200 beers in three months on a limited budget while vacationing there. Glad I did it with this. Hazy hazelnut rust with a small, lacing head. Crisp smell of roast malts and some spruce. Vanilla, chocolate, light hoppage, some citrus. Not too bitter and very creamy and smoove. I dig.

Decent bitter from Deschutes, amber in color with small airy head. Heavy malt profile in aroma and taste, some mild, dry bitterness on the finish.

pdx77 (1262) - Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2014
On draught at Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Portland. Caramel amber color. Aroma is semisweet caramel malt, grass, and a touch of citrus. Taste is caramel, malt, grain, grassy hops, and some citrus bitterness. Feels heavier that its ABV, but yet is very sessionable. Caramel finish.

hazy amber, thin white ring. Stale tea and caramel nose, bit of sugar. Front palate is orange candy and light crust, mid showing leaf and cardboard as the huge toasty finish builds until the end, light oxidation, definitely best part of the beer

this is a decent IPA. It is very hoppy... more do than the IBUs would indicate. It is a pucker beer that you better have plenty of time to down a pint. Canít rush this kind of drinking. enjoyable, but would rather go with a more subdued mirror pond or twilight.

Copper, slight haze, white head. Aroma: light caramel, herbal hops, touch of fruit. Flavor: grainy/bready malt with a little caramel, fairly firm spicy/herbal hop flavor and bitterness follows. Drinkable, balanced.
