Pours a murky dark straw color with a half inch white foam head. Dissipates quickly. Leaves a small amount of lacing. Very interesting color, actually.

Aroma is grassy, with a little bit of wheat and a squeeze of lemon. A few other tropical fruits. A hint of spices.

Wheat up front, followed by some floral hops and fresh squeezed lemon. A little bit more of the spices that were found in the nose. A little bit of yeast. Aftertaste leaves a very pleasant but subtle lemon zest on the tongue. A nice touch.

Mouth is light. Very crisp, smooth and refreshing. Strongly recommended on a humid summer day.

Overall, much better than the ratings indicated. Very refreshing. Not normally a bughe fan of Belgian IPAs, but this one hits the spot. The balance of lemon and grassiness is sensational. Chalk this one up as a very pleasant surprise.

Well, every rose has its thorn they say… Deschutes is no different and here's the weak (weakest) link I've found in their generally incredible beer assortment. Not bad by any mean but just not as balanced as I'm used to with this brewery. It's not about the bitterness (I am a huge fan of IPAs) neither about the belgian thing (I love belgian triples too) but I feel like drinking two beers in each sip here. They're both good, but they're just not part of the same beer… I guess this is still a very decent score though...
