Just not enough intense hop presence for me on this on. Earthy and muddled. Certainly more bready than bitter. Pretty average overall.

Unfortunately, the best before date on my particular bottle was a couple of days before consumption date, and I think this affected the rating.

Had on tap. Medium carbonation. I love most offering from Deschutes, this one was a miss for me. Came in underpowered on flavor. Perhaps true fans of the APA style will have more appreciation for this than I did. Still an above average beer, just not one I will seek out again.

12 oz. bottle, with best by 12/28/2014 printed on the label. A new fresh hop pale ale creation to me from Deschutes Brewery, acquired a single bottle of this stuff from the local Binny's.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a coppery amber orange body with two and a half finger of thick frothy off-white head with excellent staying power. Leaves nice fat lacing behind. Appears adequately carbonated with some nice fine sediment twirling around in the glass. Looks excellent.

S - The aroma is extremely fresh, fruity, and floral. Retains that typical flowery / berry esque hop smell that Deschutes is known for, in my opinion. Biscuity and malty on the second wave. A very pleasant smelling beer.

T - More biscuity and bready than I would have imagined based on the aroma, but this thing is superbly balanced. Fruity and floral berry-esque hop presence mingles nicely with the malt profile.

M - The feel is bready & bitter. Lightly piney and resinous on the finish. Very smooth, crisp, and easy-drinking. Very nice carbonation.

Overall, an excellent fresh hop pale ale from Deschutes. Very nicely balanced, and extremely drinkable. I could possibly see these being good well after their best by date. Recommended.

Deschutes Hop Trip -----4/5.
