Pours a clear amber light Brown with soapy soft head. Aroma is citrucy some light caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma with a light barnyard funk to the hop bill. Wet medium mouth feel. That makes you want to slam it.

Hazy amber orange. Nose of soapy citrus, citrus rind, and mild fruit/caramel. Flavor is bitter citrus, pine, and mild mango with light malt backing. Hop finish is dry, bitter, and slightly watery. Decent.

Malty near its best by date, toffee, pine a bit of citrus. Typcial signature Deschutes maltiness, and a character I donít like of theirs much. Decent, but I would know a Deschutes beer in a blind taste due to its signature malty taste. Glad I didnít pay an overpriced sixer for this, will try if fresher someday maybe sixer worthy then.

Pours an amber color, frothy white head. Aroma is sweet malts and grassy hops. Taste is the same, surprisingly very sweet! Great brew, not surprising from Deschutes.

Pours a darker amber color with white head. Light citrus, floral notes, and just a hint of pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice caramel malt note that lets you know itís a pale ale and not and IPA.

Not bad, just not the best beer in the world. There are several other Deschutes beers I prefer.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 On draft. One of the best pale ales Iíve had. Strikingly complex for a 5.5% ABV pale ale. Aroma of flowers and pine resin. Flavors of lots and lots of floral hops, faint grass, chewy dark chocolate, caramel and spice. Creamy mouth-feel. Could drink this for days.

12iz bottle shared. Poured a medium orange with an off white head. Aroma is medium malt base with lots of hops. Fresh orange/ citrus with a little pine on the end. The flavor is rich and creamy, very smooth and unexpectantly light on the bitterness. A very tasty pale ale. Do get a little orange on the back end of this. Overall very tasty.
