Deschutes Brewery Hazetron – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV (C$6.48 at Collective, 568 ml, packaged on 5-Oct-2022, acquired 1-Nov-2022, reviewed 8-Nov-2022) (C$7.00 at Collective, 355 ml, packaged on 7-Sep-2022, acquired 6-Oct-2022, reviewed 6-Nov-2022)
Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers of loose fluffy pale ivory head, good retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, cereal grains, stone fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, sticky slightly astringent moderate bitter mildly warming finish. (3/5)
Hopped with Simcoe Cryo, 630 Experimental, and Cascade. Smells and tastes pretty good on the front end, with a nice juicy fruit character and a clean cereal grain malt. However, in the finish it ends slightly astringent despite its sweet stickiness. On the other hand, it’s an emphatic DIPA in a decently-sized pint, so it’s got that going on. (15/20)
This will be my 5,419th unique Untappd check-in.
