3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours opaque straw with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is orange peel, bready yeast, coriander, mild banana. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweetness, mild bitter, mild peppery spice. (6/10) Medium bodied, lively carbonation, dry and mildly bitter finish. (4/5)
A pleasant enough beer but really more like a witbier than an IPA in my opinion. Definitely one for a shady patio on a hot summer day. (12/20)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy blonde with a nice head. Has a hoppy, wheat, fruity aroma. Tastes just alright with a pretty mild hoppiness with notes of fruit. Itís pretty smooth with a light to medium body and very drinkable, but this is not really my thing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow color, white head, not very appealing. Aroma of hay, grass, straw. Almost flavorless and itís sour. Light, thin, watery, bubbly and astringent.
I knew when I saw the pour that this was not my beer, but thatís OK. I know people who really enjoy it, so please donít listen to me. Iíve had several other beers from Deschutes and most have been solid.
This is not my beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours murky light yellow, quick head, no lacing or retention. Suspended particle matter. Aroma lemon and coriander. Taste is kind of bitter but mostly sweet and a bit sour. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes dry and slightly sour. Tasting notes of lemon, orange peel, grass, Belgian yeast, coriander and apricot. A bit too fruity for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy pale straw, white head. Nice yeast, wheat and lemon nose. Flavor follows with a bit of peppery spice. Palate is crisp with a lightly bitter finish. Overall more Wit than IPA. Like the yeasty core and light richness. As advertised "a thirst quencher." Well crafted.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, lumpy, straw colour. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, bright white head. Creamy, vanilla sweet, banana aroma. Spicy, bready yeast. The hops come through at the end. Pretty juicy. Taste is spicy, dry, and zesty bitter. Palate is soft, and a bit watery. A bit soapy, too. Finishes with more of the spicy dry bitterness.
