Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA
Thanks to Dr. K for the bottle...
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint glass. Served chilled...
A) Copper colored with excellent clarity. Nice finger of fluffy white head. Good retention and lacing.
S) Light caramel malt and mandarin oranges. Not overly sweet. Quite pleasant...
T) Similar to the nose... Very refreshing... A good amount of citrus, white grapefruit and sweet naval oranges. Finishes grassy with just mild bitterness.
M) Lighter body with pretty lively carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. I preferred the mouthfeel of this brew at a slightly cooler temp. Easy drinking right here.
O) Highly enjoyable brew... At roughly 6% ABV, you could definitely pound down a few of these. Love to have this one around for the summer.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/7/14
A clear dark amber with just a couple visible bubbles but a well sustained thumbs width of foam leaves 6 pencil thin rings before falling, looks sexy
S grapefruit, melon, tangerine, bruised mango, has a fruit candy thing going for it, gummy bears? floral notes, some spruce and caramel
T juicy, lots of caramel, some lime rind, still has a candy thing going for it, balanced for a West Coast IPA
M medium bodied, creams up just stopping short of foam, just a little grit, gummy bears and citrus rind on the finish
O solid IPA, not exactly a palate wrecker like I was expecting but an easy drinking IPA with a solid malt backbone keeping the hops in check
I'll have no problems with the 5 bottles I have left in the fridge but at over 20$ a 6er it might be tough buying another 6 with better IPA's on the same shelf for less money.
