Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Fresh Squezzed IPA
Deschutes
20131002
Unopened 22oz to Libbey pub pint tulip, only poured ~12oz.
6% ABV
Best by 11/23/13, bought ~20130920.

A – Kind of clear, but kind of hazy amber. Pretty translucent. I poured it vigorously, resulting in a somewhat billowy vanilla colored head. Nice craggy lacy right below the glass rim.

S – Fruity aroma with some earthy spiciness, but I can also smell something off. Hidden behind a small medium-darkness dank smell and light hop nip is a tiny yet sharp stale note. So far it’s good, but it’s a sign that this beer suffered due to its wait for Texas approval. As it warms, I can more easily pick out cantaloupe, honeydew, and a tiny lemon zest.

T – There’s some fruitiness, but the flavor is kind of thin at first. I mean, it’s good, but it’s like a blend of fruit with some bitterness and it doesn’t have any oomph. Good flavored and very drinkable, but a bit lacking. I always have to remind myself that some IPAs are less aggressive. A bit more hoppiness would be nice. As it warms, I’m picking up a mix of fruits, mainly melons and pear, with a tiny lemon zest on the swallow.

M – Medium bodied but pretty watery. The light carbonation on the tongue is the only sign this isn’t a viscous water solution (similar to sports drinks). Finish is wet. It’s somewhat refreshing, and I could drink a lot of it, but it’s not exactly to style.

O – If this was classified as a pale ale, I would say it’s close to style. As an IPA, I find it a little lacking. Drinkable though, thanks to a nice fruity hop flavor. My thoughts on this beer went from disappointment to contentment, and my ratings might reflect some conflicting thoughts. I think if I could buy a fresh 6er at a reasonable price, it’d be great for midday outdoor events or watching football. I don’t think it’s a good morning or dinner beer.
4.25, 3.75, 3.75, 4, 4; 3.85.
