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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Deschutes snifter. Purchased in Philly. Best by Feb 2015

Pours a deep amber body with a big thick off-white head that reduces slowly to leave spotty lacing.

Aromas of fresh citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple, and floral notes shine through.

Big juicy tropical and citrus notes on the tongue, a nice hoppy bite sitting on a light malt backbone. Very nice.

Easy drinker, medium-light body with medium carbonation.

Solid IPA. It would be part of my lineup if I had constant access to it!

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden. Pours copper orange with a one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace on parts of the glass.

Smells of caramel and toffee sweetness, pine resin, dash of fresh grass, bit of citric fruit juice and some mildly toasted bready grain. Taste is mainly chewy grain and caramel sweetness up front quickly being joined by the juicy and piney hops. Smooth body and feel with plenty of hop bitterness lingering after the finish.

Overall a solid IPA. It packs plenty of flavor and is pretty easy to consume. I would definitely get another in the future.

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!

Nice citrusy tasting IPA. Hop level just right; not too much or too little.

Appearance: Amber with an off-white head.

Smell: Big time fruity and floral hops.

Taste: Bitter up front with plenty of aromatic hop taste still coming through, into a strong malt backbone. Not too bitter, considering the aroma. I don’t taste the alcohol at all.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick and carbonated.

Overall: Like drinking liquid hop candy! Enough malt to keep it from being too bitter, enough hops to satisfy the craving.
