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.

4.1/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

From a 650 ml bottle (best by November 23, 2013) into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated September 12, 2013.

A-An aggressive pour produces about two and one-half fingers of light-tan head. The head has good retention (two minutes at least) and leaves nice lacing on the glass. The beer is orange-hued golden in color and not terribly active in the glass.

S-There is a big punch of tropical fruit here...I mean a huge fruit scent, including grapefruit and tangerine. The beer is more sweet and bready, and less bitter, than just about any other IPA I have tried. Very juicy, but perhaps a bit simplistic.

T-The taste is similar, i.e., vaguely tropical sweetness and loads of juicy citrus (orange, tangerine, grapefruit) flavors. There is a mild floral component and a bready, doughy malt base, but almost no bitterness. Tasty and refreshing.

M-The feel is medium to light and sort-of wet feeling with light carbonation.

O-The beer delivers the citrus promised by the label and title. In fact, this may be the juiciest, fruitiest IPA I have ever had. It is sweet and bready for the style, but drinks pretty easily. While I enjoyed the huge fruit flavors here, it might be a bit simple and sweet if you need a palate crushing IPA or are looking for something to hold up to stronger food flavors.

4.31/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

22oz brown bomber with a freshness date.

Head and the end result of lacing on the glass is epic, hop hazed reddish amber glows in the light. Heavenly aroma of Citra and Mosaic hops, the Nugget hops used are most likely just for bittering. Faintly catty, fresh squeezed oranges, mint, suggestion of cedar, thick stone fruit, mild alcohol, hint of bread and caramel, yeast and nuttiness all make for perhaps one of the best smelling beers to-date. Very smooth, some creaminess with a moderate amount of carbonation. Spicy, pungent, nutty, bitter, faint cedar, woody, orange pith, apricots, vague cattiness, juicy, underlying breadiness, peach pits, mild caramel, herbal, drying finish

Wow, without a doubt the most interesting hop forward beer I have had this year ... perhaps one of the best as well. We all know and love Citra but the Mosaic really shines here. Deschutes yet again has no problem going above and beyond when it comes to bringing on the hops.

Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Darren.

A: Bright gold with an off-white one-finger head that lingers down to medium sized bubbles. Thick lacing. Pretty.

S: A citrus factory featuring grapefruit, mango and pineapple.

T: Semi-sweet, smooth, balanced. A terrific caramel malt/grapefruit hop tango. Very low bitterness. Just got it in before the freshness date expired.

M: Medium with medium/thick carbonation. Very full and rich.

O: Another great reason that non-hopheads can enjoy IPA's. The balance is terrific. Recommended.

6.4%ABV. per bottle label.Best by 11/23/13.Pours into an imperial pint glass a deep burnt orange with a thinner off white head that leaves multiple rings of broken lace as it settles slowly.Ripe zesty citrus fruit hops in the nose with slight note of pine,a big caramel presence as well.Somewhat sweet on the palate with some sugar and caramel/biscuit notes,the hops are juicy and burst out with a big citric fruitiness as well as a lingering resiny finish.The label says it all, it is juicy and fresh tasting.A great beer to be expected.

Thanks to Kevin for cracking this one. The beaming, bright copper body has excellent clarity - clearly a heavily filtered IPA - and is topped with a thick, bubbly, chunky, eggshell tinted head that leaves some spiderweb-ish lacing across a good portion of the glass. Very nice looking IPA; I love cloudy, unfiltered IPAs, but I'll be damned if a crystal clear one doesn't bring a tear to my eye, too.

Wow! I didn't much know what to expect from this one, aside from the fact that it's an IPA, but after taking my first few whiffs, I'm already digging it. Mildly abrasive, sticky pines and woodsy hop notes - it's like sniffing a redwood tree. Earthy, faintly herbal, and on the border of ashy, backed up by a lightly tropical, fruity essence in the form of ripe mangoes and juicy tangerines. Seriously, what a pleasure to smell.

After an aroma like that, my expectations have just rocketed from almost non to sky-high. The first sip reveals that the malt bill is a little heavier than the nose would signify, but it's nowhere close to "over-the-top" levels of sweetness for an IPA. The fruity essence of the hops are also tossed into the foreground; more mango, orange, light pineapple, and maybe even some guava.

The hops are at maximum pungency here, with the herbal and ashy notes playing secondary and tertiary. Pine needles with earthy and dirty undertones weave in and out of the blanket of tropical fruits and toasted bready-sweet malts. The combination of flavors is great, and the bitterness is relevant, yet low enough to retain superior drinkability. Light-medium bodied, not quick sticky; slick and oily with medium carbonation.

Didn't have any expectations for this one and it ended up being great... perhaps that's why? Great mix of tropical fruits and a unique tree-like and woodsy-dirty flavor and aroma from the hops - possibly a contribution of the Mosaic variety. Quite drinkable - this is something that would definitely be a regular in the fridge rotation if it were available in my area. A bit underrated, in my opinion.

Had this on tap at MonkeyPod in Maui. Pours a golden color, appealing. Foam is not thick, but finely bubbled and dense.
Fades quickly. Citrus hit the nose immediately, there is an underlying sweet smell.
Grapefruit, fairly bitter but not overwhelming. Full bodied, easy on the tongue.
Very drinkable IPA.

I recently went on a boys trip to Portland and hit 10 different breweries. Deschutes has always been one of my favorites, but the Fresh Squeezed IPA became my all time favorite beer. The flavor was exactly what I look for - lots of hops, not too heavy, citrus flavor.
