Share This Review

Pinedrops IPA is an American IPA brewed by Deschutes Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The IPA pours a clear gold and is topped by an inch-thick off-white head that recedes slowly. The reduction leaves behind small patches of lacing.

Aroma

Aromatics of juicy orange and fresh pine lead the nose.

Flavor

Its clean palate showcases a hoppy pine that’s backed modestly by a taste of caramel and biscuit malt. Tasting finishes dryly with a lingering bite of grapefruit.

Mouthfeel

The feel has a medium body with slightly less than moderate carbonation.

Overall

The Pinedrops IPA tastes lighter than expected, and while it weighs in at 6.5% ABV, this IPA is an easy crusher. It’s a delightful refresher for warm, sunny days.

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
