Pennsylvania

3.4/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Only my second Deschutes with the first being Mirror Pond
Pours a nice cloudy gold with a lot of froth hanging around.
Smell is really underwhelming , very faint citrusy hops.
Taste is good for a blonde, this one is probably really refreshing on a hot summer day.
I guess I was expecting more of a hop presence, but for the style it was pretty good.
