4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
fresh hop version at Deschutes. Very nice and surprisingly mellow (not abrasive at all) IIPA. CTZ and Mosaic hopped , so very tropical fruit and citrus forward. Softer on the palate than expected, finished bittersweet and smooth.

On tap at the Public House in Bend. Toasted bread malt body. Clean and silky smooth. Lightly sweet with moderate citrus and pine. Wonderful grain profile. Biscuity notes and some great, fresh hop character. Very high quality drink.

From the brewery in Bend, mid-July. Doesn’t seem all that over-the-top to me. Straightforward clean citrus op IPA. Must be well-balanced if the IBUs are 100. Best IPA/equivalent from Deschutes and a really good beer!

On tap at the brewpub. hazy light amber. Small off white bead easily coaxed up with a swirl. Big citrusy aroma and flavor. So
E malt sweetness but this is a hop vehicle and it is a sweet ride. Bballanced forth style. Very nice.

Pub exclusive at the Portland pub over the weekend of OBF. Pours a dark copper with good head. Amazingly balanced for 100 IBUs. Not too sweet. Lets the blast of citrus and grass take all the credit. Love it and wish they would bottle it.
