Is it summer already? Well, no, but it’s close enough, at least for summer beer.
Deschutes’ Twilight is considerably more hoppy than I thought it would be — the summer tagline said sweet and crisp to me, but this is a more bitter, full-bodied experience. The result is a more complex brew than you might be expecting, though one that is still relatively simple and pretty refreshing. Don’t go looking for the answers to the riddles of the universe in it, though.
