For the style, one of the best I’ve had. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a lacing head. The aroma has some floral hops, caramel, a bit of booze and some grass. The flavor has the same but also has a very nice fruitiness to it that makes it quite refreshing. Very dry, crisp and clean.

Nice pour, big head...good resinous, citrus hop aroma, some caramel malt and a hint of spice. Flavor is juicy, hoppy, very refreshing. Good beer.

22oz. Pours with an off-white copper color, smallish head with decent lacing. Aroma of fresh and fruity hops with orange and a bit of minerals or rock smell. Taste is fresh and chewy hops, fruity and floral yet finishes sweet. Well crafted.

Pours an orange color with a slight hop smell to it. Has a citrus hop taste that follows with a slight bitterness. It’s like a light IPA.

Bottle. I like Deshutes a lot, but I wasn’t a big fan of this one. Not much aroma, and the flavor was a bit of citrus with an oily mouthfeel.

Decent beer all around. Nothing that really stood out, I was disappointed. I have only had a few beers from this brewery but so far mirror pond and hop trip both seem very watered down

Bottle. Dark copper with a 1"+ head. Rich thick straight forward resiny hop nose. Nice tasty light IPA. Even a bit of nut in the flavour. Wood, spruce, touch of alcohol and resin.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml. bottle. BBD 01/19/11. Pours a thick off white head of good duration, with attractive lacing, over a slightly hazy, lightly particled, amber (SRM 9) body....nose is light toffee/caramel, pine, light grapefruit, bit of hop floral tones.....taste is a melange of toffee/caramel, then light pine, finishing with a light grapefruit bitterness....mouth feel is medium, carbonation makes a creamy spritz. Despite being a bit too old, the hops in this well balanced Pale Ale were bright and lively. This is a delicious example of the style, and an easy drinking pint. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Cloudy honey amber in color. Wonderful sweet soapy floral aroma, similar to Irish Spring. Clean citrus bitter flavor followed by slightly sweet malt aftertaste almost like the crusty flavor on a lemon bunt cake. Seriously... it’s delicious. Overall, it’s flavorful, drinkable and delicious...
