Poured from a 12oz bottle, with a best by date of 12/25/12, into my Deschutes tulip...

A - Pours a crystal clear golden amber color with 1 finger of tan head, that leaves some spotty lacing as it fades.

S - Nice earthy notes of some pine and grass. Also a nice solid bready malt aroma as well.

T/M - Nice combination of bitter hops on the front, with a subtle fruity end. A nice slightly sweet malt middle. Medium, slightly slick mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation.

O - A very flavorful and well-rounder APA. The fresh hops really give it character, almost bordering on an IPA.

Served from the bottle into a becker glass. Best by 12/25/12

A- Poured a pretty clear dark copper color, visible carbonation, with frothy off-white head leaving lacing that coated the glass.

S- Big juicy citrusy hops and big caramel malt dominant the aroma. Some piney and earthy notes too.

T- Lots of spicy and grassy hop flavors. Huge grainy and barley notes. Pretty big malt profile like that of an Irish Red, toasted malt, caramel, and toffee

M- Medium body, smooth, prickly carbonation, pretty dry

O- Really unique and complex fresh hop ale with big malt and hop profiles.

12oz Bottle. Poured into my Deschutes Brew Pub Pint Glass.

A: Bright, beautiful Amber with a 2 finger head. Slightly hazy.

S: Citrus, Pine, Hops, undertone of malts. It really smells like a tangerine mashed with pine. I really like the smell.

T: Citrus upfront with the piney hops mixed in. Nice malt characters in the middle of the mouth. And a bitter,dry citrus taste left in the mouth.

M: Medium body, with medium carbonation.

O: An absolutely steller Pale Ale. Something to look forward to every year. What Deschutes does with this beer in incredible. The aroma and taste just out of the glass and leave you wanting more.

Hop Trip 12oz bottle poured in a pint on 10/7/12.

A: Bright Amber with a one finger head that recedes to a rim.

S: Surprisingly big caramel malt aroma, and a fresh citrus scent. Hops not quite as huge as I expected, but still present.

T: Sweet citrus fruit with a substantial malt bill. Nice caramel malts and then the beer goes back to the semi-oily hop feeling. Finishes very smooth and leaves jus a lingering hop bitterness.

M: More full-bodied than I would expect from an APA. Average carbonation and just a touch of bitterness.

O: Good fresh hop APA, especially for the price and accessibility this time of year. Smoothness is the main draw and drinkability is high.

Been waiting patiently for these bad boys to find themselves on the local shelves. Finally found some today, stoked that its available in six pack form and no longer bomber. Anyways...

Pours an amber tinted copper with a nice effervescent head. Wow, what a glorious aroma. Bright, fresh, sharp. Strong sweet grapefruit and tangerine absolutely dominate the olfactory senses, ontop a nice caremel malt base. Taste is sweet and fruity; a supportive caramel malt underbelly letting the hops steal the show -- the tangerine hits first, it transitions gracefully into the grapefruit and a little grass bitterness closes things out. A crisp, active moutfheel. Overall, Deschutes with another great beer. So glad I have 5 more bottles of this in my fridge.

This was the first wet-hopped beer I had ever had, many moons ago (I'm talking 7 years ago as the now "retired" Hop Trip). So it's fitting that I try it again today to review it after having two other wet-hopped beers.

As expected, the impact of this beer is not quite what it was six or seven years ago. The hops/oils seem less vibrant and impactful as the other wet-hopped beers I have tried. There is a bitterness that combines with oils and hop tones decently well, but doesn't really wow me. I mean, it's okay, but it doesn't scream fresh to me. I suppose you can only go so far with a mass produced and widely distributed bottling?

A decent beer, but could use more punch. I guess I've spoiled myself and ruined it for so many other beers at this point.
