Not much aroma, just a slight hint of hop flower. Loses some points on appearance from clarity and lack of head. Pretty mild flavor but a good amount of bitterness (just right for an ESB.) Pretty good mouthfeel as well. This was definitely my favorite overall Deschutes brew. Just with it had more aroma.
Had on tap at brew pub in Bend. Clear reddish orange, looks like a sunset. Sweet smell. Slightly bitter but good flavor, front of tongue. adwoan99 (305) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Nose is light and almost nonexistent. Taste is crisp and refreshing, but doesn’t take me by surprise. Overall very drinkable but nothing special. deyholla (11486) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2016
