12 oz bottle from the Utah system poured into my beer goblet.

Appearance: A slightly hazy very pale yellow beer with a persistent head about one finger thick.

Smell: Fairly strong hops above light grains. I get citrus, lemon and floral aromas very pleasant.

Taste: A nice crisp grain that suggests wheat or oats to add a touch of body. The star here are the hops and all of their great scent. Citrus (lemon) floral flavors without adding bitterness. All of these hops are late addition or possibly dry hopped.

Mouthfeel: The light looking beer is aided with an addition of something besides malted barley to add to the body giving just a touch of heft.

Overall: This one did win a GABF medal and deservedly so. I like the style a lot and this one is a great example of a hoppy wit. Good stuff Deschutes.

12oz bottle into a FW teku glass. BB 11/9/13

Pours a crisp pale golden color with an inch white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The smell is mild on hops and some lemon/fruit aromas mixed in as well..but subtle. The taste is very "light" but still good and hoppy. This is definitely not a typical american style IPA but it still is very enjoyable. good amount of spices add a nice yeasty touch to this one. Light bodied, mild carbonation.

Overall a beer that you could drink a ton of in a row and not get tired of (and not pass out, either!) recommended to beer geeks and to beer novices as well.
