Deschutes doesn't have distribution here in FLA (not that I'm aware of anyway) but SN is a standard in my fridge. I'm with the both voters!!

Deschutes is my favorite brewery around. Everything they make is delicious in my opinion. Mirror Pond all the way!

I tried it for the first time last year and fell in love instantly. Actually had a sixer last night and a clone of it is in my secondary dry-hopping right now. Going to be kegging it early next week.

I have never had the Deschutes, don't think they distribute here. First time try the SNPA it is considered by many the benchmark for West Coast Pale Ales. That should give you a point for comparison, next time try the Deschutes. Ideally find a bottle store that sells singles and get one of each to try and compare.

Sweet, costco actually has a 24 pack of it right now, but that might be too much of it (but i could use the bottles).

Might pickup a six pack tonight at the local craft beer store.

You're over here in Washington and you're deciding between those two? One of the best examples (to my not-so experienced pallet) of a pale ale is Mannys!

EDIT: I voted for Sierra
