A-much darker than I thought. An almost coppery red tone that looked more amber than IPA. Decent head retention and lacing. The color is very beautiful and unexpected.
S-fresh hop and citrus on the nose, a little musky aroma lingering on the backend
T-initially more of a Citra taste--oranges and lemon zest infused with some hopy floral notes--followed by something almost like apple--fruity but more subdued than in your face citrus
M-my least favorite aspect of this beer is the mouthfeel. It's slippery and watery, and there's not much body to this. Even the carbonation is lacking, which certainly doesn't not help.
O-this is a pretty drinkable beer and it gets better throughout the bottle, but I wouldn't classify this as a go to IPA. It's tasty, but it leaves me wanting more substance. I prefer other Deschutes offerings to this one.

Fresh squeezed IPA pours a darker bronze color with a nice large and lacing white head. There is a strong hop aroma, with strong grapefruit notes. Taste has a nice malty toasty backbone, with a nice hop note, lots of grapefruit flavors. Very full flavors, a little flat. Overall a very rich flavorful and complex IPA.
