12 oz bottle poured into a tulip
Best by 12-24-13

A- Pours a relatively clear amber orange color. A modest off white head.

S- Light and hoppy as the name implies. A nice pine, a sharp resinous bit. A complex fruitness and a light malt honey sweetness to make it pop.

T- A perfectly balanced and moderate bittersweetness at first. A really nice mix between the honey like malt and the hop bitterness.The first flavor I get is a honey flavor, then the hop profile starts to come in. A herbal flavor at first, followed by a refreshing pine, then pine sap, then a light fruityness. A bit of lemongrass, a touch of grapefruit. A well rounded and tasty beer.

M- I could drink this all day. It has a complex flavor profile that keeps it interesting and a mouthfeel that wont burn your palate.

O- An awesome fresh hop ale. Arguably one of the best of the style. I'm lucky to have been able to land some as Deschutes is yet to arrive in KY. Definetely worthy of getting, especially for the price tag.

Fresh 12 ounce bottle poured into a 16.5 ounce snifter. Best by 12/24/13.

Appearance: Beautiful bronze/orange color. Poured gently with a small half finger head, which dissipates quickly. Very clear in the light, can see right through it.

Smell: This was the part that sold me on this one. Very strong citrus, mango, orange, slight lemon, and grassy. Swirl the glass a few times to amplify these notes.

Taste: Not bitter upfront. Feels very well balanced. Nice malty undertones with citrus left in the back of your mouth.

Overall Impression: Fantastic beer, and extremely sessionable. Reminds me quite a bit of fresh squeezed. Really glad I was able to score a sixer of this.

Burnished copper with a creamy white one finger head,good lacing in the tulip.

Aroma is relatively muted,faint malt,faint hops,nothing unpleasant.

Taste starts out with some sweet bready malt,lingers on the palate for a moment before the hops follow with a pleasant aftertaste, slightly piney and savory. I find the taste improving with each sip, this is nicely balanced and easy drinking.

Lighter side of medium, good mouthfeel, again, nice balance of the malt & hops.

Solid effort from Deschutes, especially if you enjoy a balanced ale that is neither too malty or too hoppy.Worth trying.

If you'e a hop head like me, there is nothing more satisfying then popping open a beer and getting a wiff of a fresh hop beer.
And thats the case here with hop trip. From the moment I openned it wave after wave of pungent juicy hops came barreling at me and this is before I even poured the beer.
The aroma was only slightly citrusy and floral but still the fresh wet hops made up for this with ease.
The appearance could not be better. Stunning clarity in this copper amber ale. The head was tall and beige. Tight small bubbles gave it a frothy mousse like look. Excellent retention kept the head around along while. Lacing was beautiful.
The taste was equally up to task. The balanced flavor was of grainy malts candied sugar and fresh wet hops that burst on every sip. There is a slight bitterness at the end but overall drinks very clean and refreshing.
Best before 12/24 I don't know when it was bottled but this one was a really really, really good beer.

12oz bottle into a pint glass
No bottling date

Thanks to socalbrewlvr for this extra!

A: Dark amber, almost reddish hue, 1/2 fingers width of light tan head dissipates down quickly, effectively no lacing

S: dank resinous hops, sweet citrus, tropical fruits, piney bitterness, a bit of hop spice, some sweet malts. Just plain wonderful.

T: resinous, piney, soap-like hop character, citrus rind, balanced by sweet malts

M/D: full bodied, carbonation on the heavier side, some what dry, drinkability is good

O: This is awesome. One of the best APA's Ive ever had.
