Once again I found myself at Sockeye’s in Monroe, WA, getting work done before heading home for the day. I really like working there during happy hour. You just can’t beat the $3 beers and solid internet along with the beautiful view of the lake. The only thing I could really ask for would be more variety in the draught beers. They have good beer there, just doesn’t change enough.
For this outing, I decided to go with Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale. While the name portrays pale ale, I would say this is almost on level with most IPAs I have had. Very hoppy, thick, and dark in color. The nose is hoppy, the finish pretty complex. Bitterness is right up there.
Overall this is a fine beer. Really no complaints and I believe this is one of Deschutes’ staple beers. Mark another one on the list of solid showings for them.
