Deschutes Hop Slice Session IPA

The Deschutes Brewery is in Bend, Oregon. This is their 4.5% ABV session India Pale Ale brewed with Meyer lemons.

The beer pours a lightly hazed amber and apricot in color. There is a tall, thickly foamy head of white to off-white. The aroma is hops, citrus, lemon, with a very light touch of pine and dank, over toasted, crackery malt. The taste follows the aromas precisely, hitting all of the same notes. The finish is moderately bitter, with a grapefruit thirst quenching astringency. The beer drinks easy and refreshing. This is a great beer for summer.
