Pours a mild copper with an off white head. Aroma is slightly metallic with a tinge of hops. Taste is mild at first with a bit of a skunky bite on the back end. Not a terrible beer but I’ve had better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light fruit aroma with the banana bread type quality I’m so used to with Deschutes. Flavor follows suit with a nice toasty finish. Bitter, but smooth at the same time. High standard light pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light orange from the bottle, average head. Aroma is light pine, bread. Taste follows through with moderate hops, some malty bread sweetness, and a great chewy mouthfeel. Not a pale ale, really--I think of this as reminiscent of a steam beer, or an unusually hoppy kolsch. Great balance and drinkability. I think better than the average rating here suggests.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Nice lacing. Clear dark gold. Bit of hop nose. Pretty hoppy for a summer ale, tempered by very bready yeast.
