This is an obviously well made brew. The ratio of hops to malt is just about perfect. Hops evident, but no citrus, make this a pleasant tasting, easy drinker.

Very wonderful, light, crisp ale. A good summer beer. Light golden body with a thin white head. Beutiful hoppy aroma. Not sure how to identify taste except that it was bitter and slightly sweet.

Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was citrusy and hoppy with maybe a light malt side coming through as well.The flavor was fruity and sweet at times with a change to a mild bitter sweet hop taste to go along with the citrusy grapefruit notes.The malt stays a bit on the mild side i think with the hops being the big deal here.Over all i’d say it’s a fairly decent brew that is nice to drink while catching a little sun while fishing.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Rather mild brew other than the flowery and perfumey hoppiness. It has a light, grainy and toasty malt flavor; floral, citrus, perfume, and celery in the hops; moderate and slightly slick palate; fairly bitter finish. Good session brew.

pours a very nice golden color, almost clear. Very little head with moderate to low carbonation. Aroma of citrus and sweet hops. Taste starts off sweet and ends bitter with a nice malty finish, kinda of wheaty like Fat tire finishes. /i love this new brew, I hope they make it into a year round beverage soon for my own sake. Thanks Deschutes.

Nice hop, grapefruit aroma. Light golden color, intriqite lacing on the glass. Nicely balanced hop flavor, very pleasant. Semi-sweet to smooth on the palate. Indulging and very refreshing. Not an outstanding beer but very quaffable.
