Deschutes Hop Slice Session IPA

Deschutes Hop Slice Session IPA, India Pale Ale brewed with Meyer lemons. 4.5% ABV. 45 IBU.

Clear, bright golden coloring, slim, but staying creamy white head.

Aroma: fresh, zesty, lemony. Not a trace of bitterness.

In the mouth: here it comes, a nice blast of bitter hoppiness that fades after a moment. Lightish body. Refreshing and tasty. Lemon-y? Yeah. Easy-drinking? Sure, you bet. A good one for summer.

I'm not thrilled with this one, but I don't think it's meant to thrill. Just to be emptied down your throat, then guzzled
again and again. Nothing wrong with that, as long as it tastes good.
