In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale

“Medium body for an APA, medium to high carb. Honey character and citrus tartness return in the aftertaste. Reasonable bitterness but could use a bit more hops flavor. Malt is sweet but flat. Alcohol evident. Balance is a bit on the malt sweet side, but the lack of bitter is made up in hops flavor.”
