Pours a coppery red with a thin white head. Aroma is all mash and grain. I hoped for more happiness and it lacks that. It’s more of a Scottish ale.

Tap at Parlor City. This is a great pale! Pours copper with big white head. Nose is sweet pineapple. Taste is a nice creamy sweetness with a good hop balance.

As advertised. Copper pour sunset flavor though nice. Malt hop blend perfecto. Nw hops yes pleasant. Citrus combo of several citrus fruits. Longer hoppy. Green lush untouched rapids and moist love come to mind. Cool session experience.

Nice hoppy aroma. Great hops taste but not overwhelming and has a strong malty backbone. A great northwest style pale ale.

A- Citrus, piney.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Citrus, piney, spruce, bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter citrusy finish.
O- As someone who does not like APA’s this wasn’t too bad. Still not something I would seek out, but the citrus helped a lot. Not crazy bitter but still just missing something. Good, but not quite great.

Shared by KyotoLefty. Happy to give this a try, thanks! A nice clear golden amber color, with a thick foamy head. The hoppy nose has a zesty biscuity malt vibe. The taste is citrusy light pine & caramel. It doesn’t really scream red ale but yeah as an APA I can see it. Pretty good but I was expecting more from Deschutes though I am not sure how old this is...

(tap) clear orange amber colour with a small tan head; wonderful aroma of citrus, stewed fruit, sweet notes; flavour not as great as aroma but still nice - balanced with long medium bitter finish

Couleur de cuivre avec une grande mousse beige. L’arôme du caramel, malt et ananas. Le goût est très similair mais aussi très fraîche, bien équilibré, et facile à boire. Très bonne!

filmy white top on a hazy red amber body. Soapy nose, light toast, some caramel. Soapy up front with dank pine, metallic mid palate thin through the full caramel and pine finish, more dankness in the incredibly slick end where a stale oat.
