3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Bottles and Cans with a "best by" date 2 months out. Pours a pale yellow with a spongey white head leaving very nice circles of lace. Aroma has fresh cut grass and pine with some citrus and bits of straw/earthiness. Taste is of lemons, grapefruit and oranges, with pine and some sour fruit involved. It is light bodied and while not overly bitter, mainly bitter & spicy with some sweet fruitiness. Finishes most bitter, with some tanginess. Not real alcohol presence - would be a mostly bitter sessionable ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours light, clear yellow with foamy white head. Not much aroma going on, very faint but a little floralness coming through. Really easy to drink. Light but still has good flavor to it. Overall, not really a very impressive full flavorful IPA, more a ’sessionable’ IPA.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus/orange, dank hops, and a touch of floral/grassy hops. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger soapy white head that leaves a good amount of sticky webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a moderate-heavy dose of oranges. There is some light dankness in the middle. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit with a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, this drinks way more sessionable than 7.4%. I seem to really enjoy the Deschutes IPA’s I’ve had and this one is no different.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a golden color with just a thin white head on top that sheds minimal lacing. Biscuits, grassy hop aroma, with a dash of grapefruit and toast. The flavor shows wet grass, leafy, and herbal hops. Notes of toasted grain join in with plenty of bready/biscuit malt and just a touch of lemon. Some sticky sweetness but that’s countered by a dry, sharp bitter finish. Definitely fresh. Solid stuff.

Nice citrus, piney, grassy hop flavor with a slightly sweet bready malt. It's all fairly subdued but you can tell the freshness of the wet hops. The hops also come through in the mouthfeel giving it a smooth slickness. It's the best feature of the beer. If this had more assertive hop flavor and bitterness it would be great.
