3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with caramel and spicy notes. Taste is a spicy, pine and citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that tickles the tongue nicely. A well crafted amber ale that I highly recommend for others to try.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by date of 06.25.14.
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 04.22.14.
A: See through dark red. Small head with an easy pour.
S: Sweet malt, spices, toffee.
T: Toffee dominates. Caramel and spices are there too. Slight grapefruit and pine on back end.
O: This was a very well balanced and complex amber. It was in the typical Deschutes style. It had the caramel that you would expect in an amber, but it also had a nice grapefruit/pine finish that added just enough hoppiness to make it interesting.
