Why do you want to try this beer? Not only because Deschutes but because they claim all hops are cut off the vine and brewed within 4 hours. I believe it.

Pours dark orange with a lovely microfine head and lush lace that leaves a miniscule amount sticking.

Fresh orange/tangerine, slight caramel, lemon, fresh pine. Mild biscuit-y malt and earthiness. Smell is very close to the taste. Just a touch bitter, nice foamy mouthfeel, not a high ABV beer (5.9) but still that being said the ABV is beautifully hidden. Highly drinkable. If you find it in sixers (which I imagine is how its sold) and want a good sessionable IPA or APA pick this one up. I'm having a hard time analyzing it as it is going fast. A worthy beer of being called unique.

A-Semi cloudy amber orange in the glass, one finger head that lingers.

S-Some malt, mild citrus, earthy and floral notes.

T-Starts with some malty sweetness, maybe a tad too much. Still within best by but I like em fresh. Hops flavors are there but mild.

M-Medium bodied, sticky, hop resins, nice carbonation.

O-A Good beer, but I'd imagine super fresh it would be even better.

Best by date 12/28/2014, bottle in pint glass.
L - copper color, nice head and lace.
S - not very pronounced, a bit of citrus and pine.
T- nice dank pine and citrus. Very balanced bitterness on the back end. A little sweet caramel malt
F - very smooth, good feel on the tongue. Carbonation is good, along with lingering bitterness.
O - very good fresh hop beer. The dankness of the hops really sets this apart from other wet hopped IPA's.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma has some tropical fruit: mango and pineapple, along with lemon and pine. Nice.
The taste has a moderate bitterness throughout, with caramel sweetness layered in nicely. Great balance and profile.
The texture is a little fizzy.
Quite enjoyable.

Pours amber with a thick white head. Smells is pretty faint. Some orange and a little earthiness. 12/29/14 best by date which is 120 days out from bottling. Not very fresh so I don't expect much. Taste is very citrusy and orange up front. The low bitterness allows the hop flavor to really shine. A little spice in there too along with some earthiness. Finishes off with a nice malt backbone. Mouthfeel is good, if a little thick. I really prefer my hoppy beers to be lighter, especially when they're <7%. Overall, a good (slightly) fresh hop pale ale. I'd imagine by opinion would be greatly different if it were even fresher.
