Another GREAT beverage from Deschutes, the appearance is great along with the aroma from the Cascades, hell you can’t get to many of those, can you? Great flavor, very enjoyable beer.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear peach color with nice off tan head when poured into a tulip. Hardly any aromas. Taste is mellow citrus, apricot with a nice malty back. Slightly sweet but somehow also crisp. Nice and hoppy without being over the top. Really well balanced.

Tastes a little bitter. The aroma is a bit strong too. Color is good, pours nicely as well. Has an odd finish, almost soapy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of nice dry hops, pours amber with almost no white head and no lacing. Taste is real nice hoppy and dry, but gives way to a moldy aftertaste that I found quite unpleasing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Indiana_Red: Pours to a light amber with rose highlights showing through in the light; small off-white head that quickly reduces to a ring around the outside of the glass. Aroma is a yeasty fruit, pilsner-like malts, a bit of spicy pale malt/rubber band, and leather. Light bodied. Taste is initially more fruity than I expected (apples, pear, berries, touch of banana) with notes of light malts, cereal grains, grass, leaves, biscuits, light wood, with a hint of citrus/grapefruit towards the end. Finishes somewhat sweet with notes of butter, grass, and mild citrus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange peach. Balanced nose of leathery/English yeast and piney hop perfume with hints of apricot and woody malt. Loads of fruity esters. Tightly robust carbonation. Firmly bodied. First sip yields a glut of earthy yeast. Mild datelike and honeyed biscuit sweetness with bits of grain dust caressing the palate. Trace acidity couples with pungent citrus rind and a savory duo of husky-accented toasty pale malt flavors and nutty yeast. Fruity and lightly buttery, throughout, but ends up finishing appetizingly dry and hoppy as the firm yeast stamp accentuates the dryness. Just a solid hybrid all the way through.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a quality easy drinking beer for any time of the year. It pours a copper color with a medium white head. Beautiful fruity hop aroma. Well balanced fruity citrus flavors, a touch of malt, and a subtle lingering hop finish. Pass me another.
