anders37 (26605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2008
Draught @ Horse Brass Pub, Portland. Pours a slightly hazy dark ambe color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy citrus aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy citrus flavor. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter citrus finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle from WBF in Durham. Amber pour, off white head. This was surprisingly good... and very hoppy for a pale ale thanks to the abundance of Cascade hops. Skunky, resiny, citrusy, tasty hops. A bit thin. Good stuff. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Hazy amber pour, fluffy off white head. Citrus and grains on the nose. Thin bodied and very sessional. Citrus flavor. Long bitter finish. stchloe (1067) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Nothing special. A session amber, perhaps overpriced and overhyped. Thin an unobstrusive character. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
[1648-20080902] Tap. Grainy faint aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head (you can see where the nozzle was pouring in the head) and some spotted lacing. Some grainy grains and a hint of citrus in the flavour. Medium body has a slightly astringent finish. Not bad but everything seems to meld together into a little blandness.

i remember liking it. vaguely. i mean, i vaguely REMEMBER liking it, not that i vaguely LIKED it. this was the question-mark-numbered pint in a line of big burly beers. and my stomach was empty. and i’m a texan in the coloradoian mountains. and that means that i forget quicker than i can remember to take notes on a napkin or coaster. there was something in my head about "dude, eat this with fish-n-chips - and do it soon." that was a note to myself, which worked because i remembered it. there was also something about this pale ale looking really red - like nearly maroon. maybe i recall a surprising abundance of malts as well, like this was hoppy on the front and sweet on the follow through. i really should type these things in the moment. mmmbeer (1419) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2008
12 oz. bottle in trade from mar- thanks! Served in shaker- poured a faded copper, nice foamy white head one finger thick formed and stayed around for a few minutes with moderate lacing, low carbonation, aroma of earth, malt, and citrus. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is there but some odd bitterness is in the background, finish is bitter but still has that odd taste to it. Up for a re-rate down the line...

Sample at Yard House in San Diego. This brew is a rich amber color with a medium and frothy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Citrus and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrus and earthy malt, and unfortunately a strong model glue flavor. The finish is very astringent and the acetone/model glue character permeates throughout. I have to assume the fault is the lines or some other QC issue but will have to try again sometime to verify. ebowman (11) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Pours a beautiful amber color with a thin head, but does not dissipate quickly. Aroma of toffee, smoke, and a light touch of citrus. A full-mouth taste that spreads out quickly with nice hoppiness. A very nice beer from Deschutes. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2008
On cask at public house in Portland. Amber with thn white head. Floral hop aroma. Dry and slightly malty.
