3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice copper color with a small off-white head and some lacing. It has a light citrus aroma. The flavor is very interesting, with alternating hops and malty sweetness, a lingering malt aftertaste, and a smooth mouthfeel.

Bottle @ Timbers, Denver. Pours amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma of malt, caramel, peach, citrus, notes of butter. Taste is malt, caramel, peach, citrus, grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation, semi bitter finish. Apart from the faint buttery notes in the aroma, a nice brew. 030312

Not the in your face pale ale you'd expect from the northwest.
A: Moderate hop with a caramel malt backbone
C: Copper with some haze and a nice head.
T: Moderate hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness
O: Not an overpowering hop bomb. A little sweet on the finish.

Very strong malt presence with a hint of citrusy hops. Def not a west coast pale ale if thats what you are looking for. Very smooth and would be a good beer for someone who is just getting into the craft scene.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with cream head. Formally this was considered an IPA but now a NWPA. Another great Deschutes seasonal that has become a staple in Central Oregon and beyond!

Bottle pours copper with a thin tan head. Pine aroma with huge fresh hop cone notes. Flavor is nicely balanced toasted malts, some nuts, ending with good earthen hops. Nice!

Best by June 5, 2012 bottle. Pours a clear, medium amber with moderate head. Excellent lacing. Wonderful aroma of pine, citrus, floral. Love the bitter bite this beer has in the taste and finish. Despite this, the malt presence is evident as well - really enjoy this beer! You can easily discern this is a top-notch offering from a great brewery - Prost!
