The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, its an insiders ride to fresh thrills.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Strong caramel malt aroma, with some citrus hop. Great citrus/berry and spicy hop flavor; almost cinnamon-like in the finish. The caramel malt flavor is OK; a little weird, better than the aroma. Some bready flavor and bitterness in aftertaste.

Probably my favourite Deschutes beer, a massive pale ale with bread, maple syrup, peach and grapefruit aromas. There are loads of lemon, grapefruit and pine aromas plus toast with a nicely rounded palate and that alcohol and grapefruit persisting in the back of the throat long after youve swallowed.

Sweet malt lead on nose. Hints of citrus. Amber pour with no head. Taste leads pine, juice, and finishes with biscuit malt. Mine is a few days part date, wonder if juice would have been stronger fresh

olio (9999) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2017
355 ml bottle @ home.BBE 13.04.2017.
Pours clear golden-copper color with a large head. Resinous hops on the nose, some orange, mild pine notes. Flavor is juicy and fruity, some mild bitterness, resin, some caramel at the end, decent maltiness, not that bitter, a bit on the sweet side. Sadly an old bottle, so the hops are a bit weak.

Deschutes Brewing is the master of the pale ales. Good malty flavor well balanced with some hoppy bitterness, would recommend.

Clean dark copper color with a pillowy head of white foam. Whole grain bread, candies apple, caramel, soft citrus, and some bubblegum. Not aggressive, more relaxing like relaxing in that red chair.

Brandon1989 (635) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pours a nice mostly clear copper color with a medium white head that has some good retention and left some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is very citrusy, grapefruit, some hints of pine but mellow, lots of bready malts. The flavor is more of the same as the aroma and hits you right up front and finishes well. This beer packs a punch closer to an ipa but it is so balanced and the drinkability is super high. This is a very well made beer that I highly recommend.

willisread (3247) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle from Js. Pours a clear, amber with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Light pine and malty bread aromas. Clean and light, with some mineral notes, more bread, caramel and pine. Light bitter finish. Simple stuff.
