Sweet floral and bready aroma. Pours somewhat opaque with a thick white head. Love the flavor, very well balanced with sweetness and bitterness in equal measure.

Was first expecting like a light pale. Came out with an amber color smooth overall beer with a Carmel taste. Great beer

Pours an orange color with a slight hop smell to it. Has a citrus hop taste that follows with a slight bitterness. It’s like a light IPA.

Muted aroma and flavour - expected more of both - harmoniously well balanced - very smooth on the tongue so good quaffing ale - just a bit boring.

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 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.

Holy cow! I might have a new favorit beer here. Pours a great copper color with a decent graham cracker color head that leaves nice lacing; clear with decent carbonation. Aroma of that great deschutes ice tea smell and carmeled ginger, honey, etc. Flavors are awesome with decent, very fresh bitterness, light citrus, a bit of pine, fairly sweet, but not cloying since it is so nicely balanced. Extremely easy drinking, extremely nicely balanced and a great example of the style. Bravo!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
All that a fresh hop pale ale should be. Pours a beautiful hickory color with a thin white head. Subtle citrus and resin on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium bodied strong toasty malt, thin and refreshing on the finish. Throughout a subtle and varied hop component is wet, spicy, and rich with lime and grass. A fantastic beer.

Pine malt and hay aroma. Light amber in color with a pillowy off white tan head. Pine and light mint start with a mellow cream finish. Very tasty.
