Postmortem Brew Review
Pleasant amber color.
Floral hops and roasted caramel malts in aroma.
Near-white, two finger head. Wonderful ringed lacing and superior head retention.
Caramel malt and biscuit flavored with floral hops taste.
Moderate amount of carbonation.
Light to medium bodied.  Perfect session beer. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
New, uncharted ales brought back from a visit west of the Mississippi!

40 IBU's and a ton of fresh hop flavor make this a stellar Pale Ale. It was love at first sip. I brought several of Deschutes ales back from a recent trip out west, but was also able to sample this while in Arizona. A great color, terrific fresh smell and just the right amount of hops attracted me to this ale. I read the beautifully worded label and now wish to see the brewery first hand, on the banks of the Deschutes River.

I could drink this one all day long. More Deschutes in the fridge...can't wait to try them all now!
