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.

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.

Deschutes Brewery has been one of the US brewers I’ve been trying to get my hands on ever since I began walking... the day after having a big night out drinking American craft beer (see how important it is to finish some sentences). Anyway Deschutes, Russian River and The Alchemist are all up there in my fantasy beer world. Well no longer for Deschutes (take that brain!) as The Durham (Canberra) managed to get a few of their brews in and I went straight for the big guns: Fresh Squeezed IPA.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a nonic pint.

A: Hazy deep amber body with a 2cm off-white head - smack in the middle of classic IPA territory yes. 9/10.

S: Pineapple forward with citric/pine notes and hints of caramel malt. Tropical and citric hops domineering throughout this fantastic aroma! I want this in an aftershave... actually scratch that, an aftershave of this would have me salivating constantly - somehow I think ladies might get the wrong impression of me from this. 10/10.

T: Wow! All of the above (pineapple, citrus/pine) the balance between hops and caramel malts is superb - a master class in how to balance sweet/bitter characters. Tropical fruit from the Mosaic hops (which are fast becoming my favourite hop) mix well with the lemon/lychee Citra flavours. Someone told me the other day that Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA had better flavour but he was wrong - this beats it. 10/10.

M: Medium bodied with a light carbonation and plenty of hop oils sloshing around (in fact you could see oil drops in the pour). 8/10.

D: Verdict: My new favourite IPA. Although it’s pretty mild as far as hop bitterness in American IPAs go (it’s more like an American Pale Ale in this respect) it has such flawless balance, and the tropical/citric/pine combination I know and love. I reckon I could down a case of this quicker than a dying man in a desert. It’s 6.4% ABV and you hardly notice it. I’m having a double take here: I need to get it again just to make sure it really is this good or if I happened to have a miraculously good batch - the bottling date is August 2014 - fresh IPA at its best. 10/10.

Food match: Classic IPA cuisines for me are Thai/Vietnamese/Malaysian, however I have a feeling this Ale would be just at home with a gourmet pizza too.
