Not sure I continue trying Deschutes, I'm always left disappointed. This time it was worse than mediocre...from aroma to taste to finish.

Another really strong offering from Deschutes. You can pick out that fresh, hop flavor. Also a bit of citrus coming through.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to cup. Aroma is sap, pine, orange blossom. Copper with good clarity. Seltzer like carbonation that dissipates quickly, no head remains. Rich citrus and maple with a heavy malt backbone, balanced bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a beer where nothing really stands out, but while you are drinking it, you are enjoying it. Pours a darker amber than I was expecting with a pretty dense, eggshell, slightly soapy head. Head is lasting pretty long. Aroma is faint but getting a decent orange scent. Taste is citrusy hops - more of the actual juice than the rind type flavors you can get on some citrus IPAs. Orange, a bit of grapefruit. A very minor pine feeling. I do not know a lot about Mosaic hops, but am realizing that I have not had a bad IPA where they clearly state they are using Mosaic hops. Pretty lively carbonation. Balanced - not a hop bomb at all.
I cannot recall the price point, but if it is in range of some of the other IPAs that I get pretty regularly, this might end up in my cart a bit more.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear coppery orange with a thin white head and some lacing. Light citrus aroma. Fairly smooth but not as refreshing as I expected. Some citrus flavor with a somewhat dry malty finish. Flavors don’t linger for long. OK but nothing special.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at BJ’S resturant at the Sunnyvale shopping mall. Medium lasting off white head. Light opaque dark golden color. Amazing hop aroma with apricots and mango. Bitter, hoppy and we’ll fermented to give fresh, crisp taste. Perfect palette.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty with tons of tangerine/citrus flavor. As far from the old bitter ibu heavy beers as could be.
