look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
22oz bomber bought at Pinocchio's in Media, PA, because I can't get it here in NJ.
Poured into a Sam Adams 'perfect pint' glass.
AP: Dark burnt amber and rusty brown colour, looks chewy for a 6% IPA. Nice foamy 1" white head that dwindled down to a 1/2" with decent lacing.
AR: Oh, this smells heavenly. Fresh Squeezed is a good name for it as there's what smells like fresh squeezed juice in this (in a hoppy way, that is). There's pine in the aroma, but the big players here are tropical fruits: pineapple, mango, guava. Also some citrus notes like orange and tangerine. I also detect caramel and biscuit malts. I hope the flavours match the aroma.
T: Ah, yes, the flavours do match the aroma. However, I also get a little Sauvignon Blanc-like notes of gooseberry and melon to go with the aforementioned tropical fruits and citrus. The malt flavours have a more toasted bread/grain aspect to them, which works. This is a damn fine tasty beer. There is a little grapefruit bite at the finish. The flavours blend harmoniously together, nothing dominates or overpowers. This is really well done.
M: Moderate carbonation, decent body for a 6% brew. I love how the juicy hops stay moist on your palate afterwards.
OV: I'm glad I picked this one up and may grab another on a return trip. Damn, if they shipped this here to NJ in 4pk or 6pks I would be very happy. I'm not complaining about a 22oz, though. Beautiful aromas, great flavour to match and a finish that leaves you smacking your lips and ready for the next sip. This is my first Deschutes beer and I hope it hasn't spoiled me too much on what else to expect from them.

4.06/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a very impressive head; splashy lacing is left behind
Smell: Very juicy, with orange, peach and lime tones
Taste: Perhaps a hint of the biscuit, but this is all about juicy hops; orange prominent, but peach and lime times are also in the mix; rather sweet from all the juicy flavors
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; lively on the tongue from the juicy flavors
Overall: This would be tremendously refreshing on a hot summer day and I find it really enjoyable; not sure I would make it a "go to" IPA as I could see myself getting a little tired of the sugary sweetness
