look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Ah how I love Deschutes, been wanting this for sometime now, let's see if she measures up. oops should have went for maybe a tulip.. ah so here we are..

A real green yellow and unfiltered like appearance. Thick and shocking bright white head, with a shiny glowing top and speckled lacing. I can't believe how green this is.

Nose is quite buttery diacetyl forward, although there's some fruit sense and dry airy yeast. This is weird one on the nose, it's kind of interesting, but sort of... well odd.

Palate hits with a very good malt backbone, and mild citrus/tropical fruit. It's hard to pinpoint this fruit angle though, sort of a mellow melon if I could say. Kind of gets into pineapple territory flavor wise a bit. Luckily the butter sense from the nose is completely non-existent on the palate.

Overall, I am just not feeling this one. Very different, but sort of not working out for me, and I just don't feel like wanting this again either.

3.4/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle best by 7/13/14 at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of coriander
Head average (3 cm), white, creamy, fully diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing virtually none
Body very light yellow, hazy
Flavor is sweet, spicy, and citrus flavor; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no hops bitterness
Palate is light, watery, lively carbonation

This is a nice little beer which, to me, tastes more like a Belgium witte than an IPA.
