Hopzeit Autumn IPA

Deschutes Brewing (Bend, OR)
"Inspired by a traditional Märzenbier, German hops add herbal, fruit and spice notes to balance the smooth and elegant malt character."

Fall seasonal
 offering from one of my favorite breweries.

Beautiful copper, slightly hazy pour with a wonderfully malty nose.
Sharp lemon peel citrus bite that gives way to much more subtle flavors. Dry finish.
Different, delicious, drinkable ... Deschutes definitely delivered with this offering.
7% ABV, 60 IBU
