Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ccrida on 12-31-2009

This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of Citra and Mosaic hops. Don't worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

12oz bottle best by 7/10/15 poured into a SN/DFH IPA glass
A: Hazy burnt-orange with a solid two-finger head that lingers
S: Orange/grapefruit with hints of herbs and caramel
T: Matches the nose. Tons of citrus with a nice herbal kick, a bit of tropical fruit and a slightly earthy finish
M: Medium-bodied, the freshness/crisp note here is really nice
O: Fresh and refreshing. Not the most complex IPA I've had but one that I'd drink any time and will definitely get again

Malt comes through more so than I typically enjoy but real nice mouthfeel to this one. Was hoping for brighter hop presence but can see why folks dig it. Smooth and flavorful. Enjoy.

Refreshing, deliciously citurusy. About as close to fresh squeezed juice as an IPA can get.

Sweet flavors of mint, orange, honey, vanilla. Exceptionally well blended hops. Not overpowering, very subtle mix of great flavors. Smooth as silk and no chewy residue or aftertaste like some less sophisticated or more heavy handed IPA's. One of the greats. It is pure enjoyment.

Pours a dark amber in color with a thick white head that lingers well. Heavy amounts of lacing that last well into the session.

Orange and grapefruit aromas greet the nose with a dose of pine and a slight caramel malt character.

The initial sip starts with grapefruit and orange peel up front and finishes with a welcome balance between caramel malt and hop bitterness.

Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation and dry.

I really, really enjoyed this IPA. Very complex and very well balanced. Thank you Deschutes for once again making a killer brew.

6.4% ABV, 60 ibu.
A - amber or copper color, clear with one finger light yellow head.
S - super lychee, pineapple, tangerine, and any other tropical smell!! sooooooo summer! the fruity aromas are even stronger than the punch bowl IPA! very representative of citra and mosaic hops!
T - I would say it's kinda mid-thick body, tongue was coated with the bitterness at the very beginning, and then the malty took over, last for a while.
O - it is a very delicious beer, perfect choice for the patio, a sunny day! especially the aromas, great job on that!!

Beautiful lasting foam -smells of peach with a touch of apricot. The flavor follow nicely with bright citrus hops. This is an outstanding IPA.

One of my favorite IPAs. Perfectly balanced brew, bitters & citrusy goodness unite! I couldn't believe how refreshing this is. One of the few beers I literally have to make my self sit and sip to enjoy every drink. This one was a game-changer for me.

Look was a bit darker than I was expecting and crystal clear
Smell was less citrus/fruity than I was expecting
Taste was more bitter than I was expecting
Feel was as expected!
Overall more of a bitter "west coast" style IPA. I was expecting more of a citrusy/tropical experience. It's a good IPA, again just not what I was expecting.

Decent Citra hop flavor, not much aroma, but in the end a great taste and flavor.

Quick review. Citrusy & fruity as hell. Unbelievable depth of flavor that covers sweetish fruit to pucker-inducing bitterness. Malt is just enough to do the job, & the job is to accentuate the FRUIT. I couldn't drink this brew everyday, but it's a nice treat.

This is a delicious and original IPA. Easily a go-to IPA, or go-to beer for that matter. I haven't tasted an IPA this well balanced in a while. Slight citrus tones that aren't overpowering to the hops and aroma.

Fruit Roll up Ipa is what they should call it. Very Sweet, has more malt than your typical west coast ipa and its pretty well balanced over all, however i have to ask if it's almost too sweet. I like my ipas refreshing and crisp, but this literally tastes like oily juice.

12 ounce bottle, label says best before 07/10/15. One of my friends gave me a bottle of this since I haven't tried it before. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a mostly clear copper color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, oranges) hops, along with a bit of bready malt. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, but there's also some mango and piney hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's also smooth and pretty easy to drink. I thought this was a pretty good IPA, I might have to buy a fresher batch of this!

Took this one is a build-your-own-sixer at Stein's, a local liquor store.The best by date states that this beer is still good for over two months. Poured right from the fridge into a pint glass.

L: Pours a lovely orange blossom honey, very clear, with moderate visible carbonation. The inch off-white head sticks around for a good bit and then falls to a substantial film and ring that leaves moderate lacing on the glass.

S: The nose isn't quite as strong as I expected, but it has a very nice aroma of citrus and apricot, with some pineapple and bready malt providing subtle undertones.

T: Shortbread malt flavor at the outset, with an immediate sensation of pineapple/tropical fruit and apricot alongside citrus hops. The fruit flavors all blend amazingly well, as it's difficult to distinguish one taste from another. By no means do these flavors register as overtly sweet--in fact, the whole affair is more-or-less on the dry side. There's just a bit of warming alcohol in the mix. The finish is commanded by the hops--citrus and a hint of pine--that leave just the right amount of bitter.

F: Medium-bodied, crisp, and fairly clean on the palate. The carbonation feels right on the money, as does the bitter, which doesn't cling to the tongue.

O: This is a very nice IPA that Deschutes has produced. It is fruity and flavorful without being cloying. The balance is just fantastic. And--though I've only tried this one--it feels like I could put away a few of these without much trouble. This one is worth seeking out.

Amazing aromas of mango, tropical fruits, apricots etc. Smooth although a bit thick/syrupy for my liking. Surprisingly good.

A: [3.75] The beer is an apricot color. It has less than 1/2 a finger of head. The head is mostly small bubbles but there are larger bubbles too. The head dissipates quickly. The bottle lists the ABV 6.4% and the best by (06/10/2015).

S: [4.25] Pineapple, citrus and some pine elements. The scents are not too forward - they are subtle but still present.

T: [3.75] There is a definite malt presence through the whole sip. There is hop bitterness on the finish. The beer has a really nice balance. I am not getting the unique fruit flavors that I got off of the nose. There might be a hint of spice on the finish too.

M: [4.25] Really nice mouthfeel. Has a bit of a rich and creamy feel to the beer. The is a dry finish with the hop bitterness.

O: [4.00] I assumed that this would be more hop forward. However, the date code indicates that it is about 4.5 months old - so there may be some hop fade. Therefore this was more malt forward than I expected. The beer is still very good - but I would love to rate it fresh. This beer goes down really easily. The mouthfeel makes it one you can suck down. I will seek this out again.
