In this beer blog,we are going to get into a new brew from Deschutes Brewery. It is their Pinedrops IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The smell has a piney to earthly notes. The taste has a piney notes with a smooth dry aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.deschutesbrewery.com):
Available Year-Round. This lively IPA delivers a crisp and light malt body with ample citrus and pine notes from Chinook and Equinox hops. Inspired by the aromas and silence we experience when exploring the scenic pine forests just up the road from our brewhouse.

Closing, I was happy to hear that Deschutes was coming to the State of Michigan. I do not know how they are doing in this state. This state is a little different from other states about the drink the local beer. I get it but there are some really good craft breweries outside of this state. I believe this market is slowly turning. I could be totally wrong on that thought. I love this beer. This is better IPA than most Michigan IPA’s. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
