Nice American hop aroma. Golden red ale, with a nice fruity / malty balance. Really disappointed that they only bring this one out seasonally. One of my favorites from Deschutes.

Translucent golden red. Meager head. Satisfying, but relatively mild aroma containing notes of malt, caramel, citrus, and hops. Mid bodied. Wonderful taste characteristics beginning with a smooth combination of malt and caramel, then finishing with these underlying flavours supplemented with citrus and hops. Quite hoppy, yet as the description suggests, toned down with a fair amount of malt. Nice.

Decent American pale ale. Get the caramel and some of that red amber lager flavors. Almost a cross style between the styles.

Light amber with a frothy white head that slowly diffuses out of the beer. Aroma of pine. Taste is bitter pine with a lemon finish and bitter overall taste and a creamy texture.

12 oz bottle, pours a nice orange with an off white head. Aroma of citrus! pine and some malt. Taste wise, this is pretty well balanced, subdued hop flavor and some lightly toasted malts. Medium bodied, creamy, the the carbonation seems a bit soft for an IPA.
Overall, IMHO, this is a very tasty brew. It goes on the "Have another" list!

Slightly hoppy with an taste of berry and possibly cabbage... Itís a very surprising taste for how the beer looks slightly cloudy but with a nice red orange hue
