3.88/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Clear, orange-amber color with a short but persistent head and nice lacing down the glass. Every Deschutes brew I’ve tried has had exceptional lacing.

Aroma: Smells of peaches and overripe tropical fruit with some herbal/grassy notes in the mix. There’s a bit of a funk to the fruit aromas, giving it the aforementioned overripe quality.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation meets tangerine flavors on the tongue, with a strong hop character present as well in the form of a piney flavor. This hop-forward flavor quickly blends with a bready, nutty malt flavor in the finish, though the finish is still mighty hoppy! The hop character in the finish is pretty bitter and resiny, and is a bit out of balance with the malt flavors.

Final Word: Great flavors in this beer, but the strong hop presence in the finish makes it a bit too potently bitter for the drinker that doesn’t love hops. There’s a lot of citrus and malt character, so it still sits in much better balance than many IPAs, and isn’t an IPA that only hop heads can get into. However, you need to be pretty familiar with hoppy beers and hop flavors to enjoy this one, or else the intense, dry bitterness on the finish is going to turn you away. If you already love IPAs, this beer will definitely satisfy and is worth picking up if one of your favorites isn’t available. I’ve had better IPAs, but they are some of the best around, so this beer still sits high on the list.

Serving type: on-tap
