On tap at rogue embassy in SF. Cloudy amber, lots of bubbles, with a creamy white head. Smells doughy, yeasty and with very sharp lemon notes. Ultra creamy and soft on palate. Taste wise, its earthy, umami, slightly sweet and finishes with floral notes. Highly drinkable, inoffensive and has a lot of depth. Fantastic.

amber/gold body with white head. Aroma caramel and hops. Initial taste caramel and citrus fruit. Finishes with a mellow hops flavor that lingers for a few seconds. Very drinkable. Highly enjoyable on a warm day.

I had a pint of this on a nitro draft at Funcks near Hershey. This is a fantastic APA! The pour was light golden with a huge, soft and pillowy white head. The head left a huge amount of lacing around the glass. The nose was quite hoppy with some bready notes. The body was soft, velvety smooth and extremely drinkable. The flavors contained plenty of delicious, floral and resiny hops, along with some citrus, wheat and bread. This was an incredibly awesome APA!

This on my tongue is a hoppy malted IPA. It works but I am not in a rush to have another. Not as good as Stones IPAs, though the alcohol content is there itll get you drunk.

A light fresh hop aroma. This is basically a solid pale ale. Normal body with a super dry finish. Good stuff.

Its still a pale ale, but for the style, definitely one of the better ones. Very flavorful. Nicely balanced between malts and hops. Beautiful copper color pour. Not bitter.

Bottle from Wine Emporium 240714. Great flavour that really fills the mouth and stays for a while. Big head atop a hazy orange beer emitting aromas of citrus, melon and pine.

Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial. Malt: Crystal. Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 04.29.14. A: See through red/orange. Light head. S: Slight grapefruit, blood orange. Subtle notes. T: Citrus, flower, caramel, tangerine. Also slight graham cracker. O: Citrus and floral sweetness comes on, followed by caramel and graham cracker, then tangerine takes over and lingers. I loved this one. This was also well balanced as all Deschutes offerings are.
