Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a clear orange-amber color with a medium white head and spotty lacing. Floral hops and malt in the nose. Light, crisp body with flavors of citrus, hops and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Portland location a couple months ago. Pours orange brouwn with off white clings. Aromas of pine, grass, some grapefruit. Doesn’t taste quite as good as it smells. Needs more carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

Draught at Deschutes Brewery and Public House in Portland.
Dark amber color with a fruity nose. Very fruity flavor, with grape and a touch of tropical fruit. Interesting and unique fruit character with restrained bitterness and some tobacco, chocolate. Slightly earthy and grassy too. Interesting fresh hop character.

A sharp fresh hop presence gives off pine, citrus, and extremely floral aromas. Like chewing a big green hop. This isn’t exactly balanced, its just about the hops here. I like it a lot, but I’m not sure that others would find this quite as appealing.
