2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really hard to rate, as ths was on Nitro. If I had known that I probably wouldn’t have ordered it as it was just dominated by the nitro and I got very little aroma or flavor out of it. Certainly not hoppy. May have to give this a try in the bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange pour. Large creamy beige head with noticeable lacing. Rich malty aroma has earthy caramel notes. Flavor has notes of caramel malt and citrus hops. A wonderful balance of malt and hops. Sweet and spicy. Peppery hops finish this nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear tea-coloured pour with small white smooth head and legs. Smells of maple syrup malt, hop that's grassy and lightly floral (dank flower petals), resin. Taste is moderate bitterness, crisp lightly spicy red malt. Body is slick and bitter. Quite nice - a good deal hoppier than most pale ales, and the maltiness adds a lightly sweet crispness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Clear dark orange-amber pour with foamy head. Aroma is sweet red malt with some spicy notes, subtle but definitely present pine hops. Nice. Sort of like a malty Sierra Nevada pale ale smell, and smoother. Taste is similar, pine bitterness, bready malt, some lingering tingly bitterness. Really smooth palate. Not bad at all but wouldn't get again - just not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 7th May 2016 and poured into a Moonzen Teku glass. It poured a clear amber copper colour with a two finger off white head that retains pretty well, leaving nice streaky lacing. Aromas are grapefruit, pine, mandarin, apple, brown sugar and hints of pineapple and grassiness. Taste was bready and caramel malt sweetness heavy with bitter grapefruit pith and juicy grapefruit on the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this was pretty good but perhaps a bit too malt heavy for my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium to dark copper colored with an off white head. Tangerines, sweet floral hops, caramel, bubblegum. Subtle rich malts, has a bitter follow that seems to gain strength after you swallow. Very easy drinking to the point of being dangerous.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Translucent ruby/burnt red color with a white and creamy thin white head. Aroma is bready malts, cherries, light citrus, grass. Pretty light body for the appearance. Darker caramel malts, a bit of woodiness, dried fruit, and a touch of chestnut. Finish is somewhat sticky with a little bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - nice rusty red color, some citrus and earthy hops up front and a biscuit caramel malty taste to balance it out. Medium body. One of the better Deschutes in my opinion.
