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.

Best by 10/8/13.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and lots of fresh, juicy citrus fruit and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus fruit and orange juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very nice citrus hop smell and some tasty flavors to back it up.

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

Let the seduction of the tastebuds begin... at least for the hop-heads! Layer the mosaic and citra varieties upon a short caramel base and let the fireworks begin.

Like any IPA would, the ale pours with a turbulent golden-orange hue. Quick separation of beer and froth yields an arid and cottony head with long, lacing staying power. Citrus and tropical fruit hover above the rim and mesmerize the senses with red grapefruit, blood orange, pineapple, mango, passion fruit and herbal chive. Its thin caramel undertow give the initial taste of fructose, allowing the fruit impressions to seem candied or honey dipped.

The middle palate breams with those vibrant fruit flavors, expeically once the sweetness dries and the hop flavors project even more. Its bright and racy perfume turns to juicy Hawaiian punch and vibrant pulp, peel and ripeness. Growing bitterness is smooth and take on proportions of light citrus pith and fruit leaf, somewhat tea-like and herbal.

Its quick finish dries the palate with wonderful refreshment yet leaves the structure of malt to continue supporting the hop bitterness above. Medium-light on the mouth, its herbal closure is of chive, mild onion, light garlic and tomcat. ...but in the nicest way possible.

its back in six packs this year, one incredibly refreshing ipa, loaded with citra and mosaic hops, two of my favorites, so this is right in my wheelhouse. clear light amber copper color, lots of bubbles and a frothy and lasting white head over an inch high. it smells less citrusy than expected, but mouth watering and enticing notes of other fruits from tangerines to passion fruits, crisp and clean, hoppy, but not way bitter either. the flavor is the same, some lemon and orange notes, but more tropical fruit flavors too. maybe a touch of pine as it finishes, but this is a light ipa as far as hop intensity. its got some malt balance, maybe even a little more than it needs, it could be a little less filling, but its so tasty and fresh, everything i expected after checking out the awesome label artwork. its west coast, a little thicker, medium carbonation, and a clean finish thats almost a little sweet from all the hop oils and resins hanging around. a nice use of fun hop varietals in a very tasty ipa, not dissimilar to their hop trip fresh hop from this fall. deschutes has ipas dialed.

12oz single bottle, nice to see another IPA from this brewery make it north of the 49th parallel.

This beer pours a mildly hazy, medium orange brick amber hue, with three fat fingers of rocky, densely foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves some random chunky and splattered lace around the glass as things slowly sink away.

It smells of semi-sweet orange and grapefruit juice, a further peach/apricot fruitiness, bready caramel malt, and some watery pine needle bitterness. The taste carries on with the big, robust hop fruitiness - mandarin orange, candied grapefruit, ripe peaches, and a hint of overripe mango - somewhat biscuity caramel malt, a bit of almost metallic herbal mint, and more bitter leafy, piney notes.

The bubbles are pretty low-key and innocuous in their simple burbling, the body a plain medium weight, and well smooth, a wee airy creaminess arising with the persistence of time. It finishes on the sweet side, more fruity than malty, but both duly represented, the heretofore balancing bitterness starting to wane.

Another tasty and affable IPA from Deschutes - the use of Citra and Mosaic hops seems to be complementary, the result being the obvious fruitiness run rampant. All good, all good, this could very well be the go-to six-pack around here, as summer finally kicks it into gear.

Poured into a pint, the color is a dark saturated orange, some stray rising bubbles, and and an ample two-finger layer of off-white foam on the surface. Lots of lacing, forming speckled rings in the glass.

Aroma is mild and fairly malty, some apricot and citrus plus a small floral element.

Citrusy candied orange peel, tangerine, bready caramel malt middle. Light to moderate bitterness, smooth creamy feel. Dry bitter finish. Pretty classic IPA structure on display here. Not bad, worth checking out.

Deschutes "Fresh Squeezed IPA"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BEST BY: 02/14/15 0531 7" & code "265 D-2 1357"
$1.183 @ Weis Market, Conshohocken, PA

A rough pour brings up a massive head of frothy light-khaki colored foam over a hazy amber-orange/copper colored body. No bubbles can be seen rising, but there's clearly particulate is suspension. Over time the head drops to a solid 1/8" surface covering, leaving behind fairly solid Belgian-lace. The aroma is noticeable right from the start.

Softly sweet citrus greets you in the nose. It's mainly pineapple, but there's a hint of tangerine as well. Some other fruitiness backs it, and it's quite pleasantly rounded by notes of apple and pear.

Not surprisingly, the hops return in the flavor. They're bold up front, but they also continue all of the way through, lingering in the finish. This will probably seem exaggerated, and to a certain extent it is more detailed than the more focused "swallow of beer" that's there, but the pattern as it crosses the palate seems to be: pineapple/pine, soft grapefruit/mango, apple/pear, blueberry, gently caramelish malt still accented by the apple/pear/blueberry/mango, citrus pith, tangerine, hop resin, rising bitterness, gentle chalkiness, and finally sweetish tangerine floating over a bed of residual bitterness with occasional flickers of pine, pear, mango/lemon, and resin appearing here and there. Wow! As you progress, the alcohol comes out a bit and it takes on a bit of a floral character. It's a long lasting finish, and I almost feel you should have a sip of water to help cleanse your palate so you don't miss anything on the next go round - of course that's not going to happen as it's almost too good to put down until you're at the very least 1/4 of the way through.

The mouthfeel is supple and smooth with a moderate carbonation that lends just a caress to the tastebuds. It's medium bodied, and it reminds me of a proper English cask ale.

I've never tasted blueberry in a non-"blueberry" beer before, so this is a new one for me! It seems to help pull everything together, and wrap it all in a nice little bundle somehow. It's remarkably drinkable, perhaps because the blueberry/lemon/mango characteristics soften what might otherwise be seen as a little bit raspy (the pine, resin, chalky citrus pith character); or it's just a really well-rounded and polished IPA. The soft and smooth mouthfeel, however, also has at least something to do with it. With less carbonic bite and sensation on the tongue the raspiness and bitterness appear more toned down (or at least not accentuated).

Given the price this one's a "no brainer"; and I think it might also appeal to people who wouldn't normally go for an IPA because it's not as brash as many can be. The bitterness remains, but the additional fruitiness makes it unique. Absolutely worth trying!
