3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of IndianaRed. Dark copper/amberish with huge off white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma and flavor just standard apa, but very well balanced. Caramel/toffee offset by pine hop presence. Very clean mouthfeel, from the almost unibroue like carbonation, doesn’t really detract though. Very sessionable overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a light head. Light carbonation. Nice citrus hop aroma. Has some nice hop flavoring with some malt sweetness to back it it up. Smooth medium body beer. A good beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 A decent pale ale, although nothing special. hopy citrus flavor with notes of caramel. I almost thought it was a little weak compared to other APA’s out there.

Another winner from Deschutes Brewery! Great malt and hop flavors come thru in this pale ale. Nice deep amber color with medium head. Good full bodied taste.

Outside of a huge head and some great lacing, this beer wasn’t all that memorable. A definite hops presence in the aroma and flavor, this one mixes in with the rest of your pale ale / IPA selections out there. Try it if you can, but if you can’t….

Is a pretty nice pale ale. Has a rich amber color and leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste in your mouth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz. hop embossed brown bottle with a best by date on the left of label, 08/09/06.
Made a good appearance, poured a hazy orange hued copper with a foamy white that settled into a thin creamy lacing, minimal amount of sticking, moderate carbonation.
Had a floral and citric hop nose with a little sweet breadiness at the edges.
A lightly crisp, creamy smooth medium body, very good drinkability.
Leafy citric hoppiness at the forefront, a soft hop coarseness on the tongue, followed by a fruit bite then a sugary maltiness and a dry citric and grain bready finish.
A very nice APA from Deschutes, tasty and balanced, highly quaffable.

12 oz. bottle from sunflower market. generous american hybrid hop aroma, and plenty of hops in the flavor. nicely balanced light citrus flavor, quite easy and pleasant drinking for me.. but usually i prefer more hops ;) Worth trying more than once.
