3.53/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy deep golden body, with a massive, dense off-white head with excellent retention and thick, sticky lacing. Small streams of carbonation drift lazily to the surface.
Aroma: Very prominent citric hop aroma, primarily grapefruit, against a solid wall of pale malt.
Taste: Solid citric and pine tar hops dominate a decent pale malt presence. The malt is definitely dominated by the hops, although not vanquished. As the taste progresses, the grapefruit hops rise to apogee, and the malt is but a faint memory. A lingering, mild herbal bitterness remains well past the close of the taste.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and rather pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Very well-made and certainly to style. Would be more appealing to hop-heads than malt aficionados.
Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.
Serving type: bottle

Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery, my first by these guys. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick light tan head, clear golden body, and awesome lacing.
I smell lighter malts, not a whole lot of hop profundity. A little bit of earthiness is present here, too.
Just a very slight bit of sweet malt before an even lighter hop taste. But this brew doesn't skimp on flavor. Just the right balance of body and lightness.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. These guys did an awesome job with this ultra quenching consistency!
Overall an outstanding 4 Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery. This is one of the best seasonal summer brews I've experienced! I will buy this brew again.
