2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Sidedoor. Classic US IPA aroma. Creamy, thin off-white head on top of an amber-tan body. A touch soapy, earthy. The English yeast and caramel tastes are quite antiquated, has that boring sub par brewpub feel. Definitely bland for a fresh hop beer. Rather unimpressive.

Light copper color with small white head. Not too strong of an aroma. Lots of hops but well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-bronze color with lots of tiny floaters and a large creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint but had a bitter piney note. The flavor was sweet and malty with notes of caramel, sugar, pine and grapefruit. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark, almost ruby golden color with half finger off white head. Smells of fresh cut grass, honey biscuit, tea. Taste is light on the grassy hops, small bit of sweetness, ends with a light cracker taste and small amount of bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours an unclear amber orange with an egg shelled colored head, aroma has some citrus and light hops on the nose and the flavor has a little bit of sweetness on the front end with a slight hop finish, not all that bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Ales & Lagers in KL at home in HK. Clear iron-amber pour. Minimal white head with some dotting. Aroma is pine resin and floral hops - not too strong but enticing. Taste is relatively light, and quite malty for a hop-driven APA. Background of crisp slightly floral bitter hops, with a good bite on the finish. Nice but wouldn't get again I don't think.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought by Matt back from Malaysia. Amber-brown cloudy pour. White sudsy head with huge bubbles. Smells of crystalline malt, floral dusty hop. Slightly sweet and slightly dusty. Taste is moderately bitter, resin, faint pepper, lightly sweet malty finish. Body is medium, quite slick, smooth, long, moderate bitterness, lemony finish. Plenty of malt and decent amount of hop for a pale ale.

On tap. Pours dark orange with hints of brown, almost no head. Typical American pale ale in the SN style but with less vibrancy. Not bad--and I recall the bottle version being better--but I can easily think of 10 beers from Deschutes that I prefer to this.
