In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Deschutes. It is their Armory XPA and you can only get this beer from their sampler pack. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this brewery located in the northwest part of the United States. Let us get into this pale ale.
It has a clear copper color with a white constant head. The smell has a nice floral like notes. The taste has a nice floral and tropical notes. The aftertaste has a tropical fruit like finish. It is extremely drinkable beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I was happy to see this brewery finally make it to the Chicago market. I had to move back home so I loss the chance to really enjoyed their beers. Every time, I travel to the west coast. I always try to bring some beer back home. I happy that they followed me to Michigan. Since i have not had their beers for a while, I brought a sampler pack and this beer was part of it. I like it. It seems a little bit more bitter than Goose Island IPA. This is a great pale ale. It is not as bitter as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
