12oz bottle. Pours clear gold. Nothing special in the aroma, but it has a nice hoppy and sweet balance. Flavor is less impressive. Fair amount of hop, but mostly sour and peppery, which does not suit this style at all. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2008
I have a long, deep and abiding love for the Deschutes brewery, but this is honestly one of the worst microbrewed beers I have ever had the displeasure of tasting. It pours a nasty light yellow color with an overly carbonated head. Has a big malt flavor with minimal hops in the back and a nasty mouthfeel that makes me want to puke. As a matter of fact, my girlfriend at the time that I sampled this did throw up after drinking one of these! Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle. This beer is a lightly clouded yellow-gold color with a medium thin and bubbly white head that dissipates steadily. Top ring of lacing with rings underneath. The aroma is hoppy with notes of caramel and citrus. Medium, clean body with flavors of caramel malt, peach and light hops. The finish is lightly hoppy with a touch of lemon zing in the aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. fonefan (52396) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2008

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, dusty, cabbage. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (050808)

from a 6-pack out of Texas Liquor, Carlsbad, CA: translucent straw-orange body with medium white head that leaves moderate lacing; primary qualities--low bitterness, low sweetness; flavors or aromas noted--medium orange and citrus (accrediting the beer with its juiciness), medium graininess, light caramel; pretty typical beer--easy to drink, but boring.
A nice blend of hops that isn’t overpowering and mixes with the malt to create a solid body. Solid amber, with a decent price tag. luttonm (6978) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Coppery-amber. light head. citrus, fresh hop flavor in a very light body. tart, watery but nice to drink. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle from Liquor Depot. Fairly fresh and it showed. I would have this again, not for the non-existant aroma, but for the nice appley flavor of hops that are extraordinarily reminiscent of a Three Floyds beer - especially Pride and Joy. Wow. What an inexpensive W-Coast alternative to that. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Bottled. A golden orange coloured beer with a little whitish head. The aroma is quite pleasant but subtle citrus hoppy. Oranges and sweet grapefruit in the mouth. Fairly bitter but the hops are again nicely subtle. Nice. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Sampled at Stone Brewing. I thought it was sweet, spicy and grainy; and for some reason I wrote down it makes me moist, I am certain this comment made sense in the context of the tasting situation.
