Notes/Commercial Description:
Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down Virgil Gamache Farms' famed Amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

Drunk straight out of the bomber. Picked it up at Whole Foods to have with dinner there.

Nice crisp flavor, refreshing. The Amarillo hops really add a nice kick to this beer. I have always liked Deschutes and this is my new favorite of theirs.

I'm glad I picked up two.

as i sit here and drink my pliny, just after having a bottle of chasing freshies 2013, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my chasin freshies...more than my pliny. i love and appreciate a very good/hoppy beer, but found that the chasin freshies beer was exactly that...very fresh. pliny is a double ipa and still an incredibly good beer but this chasin freshies beer is really good. i highly recommend.

very interesting color. very thin-looking, very urine-colored, bright pastel yellow with very little carbonation. thin white foam on top dissipates quickly leaving only a super thin layer of white. tangerine, orange, slight grapefruit, but barely any pine. this is a different IPA so far....
awesome citrus flavor- tangerines and oranges and lemon. very slight hop bitterness. slight grass bitterness, but this is an awesome, yet different taste. there's a certain deja vu feeling to the flavor but I just cannot pinpoint it. definitely some grapefruit rind; red grapefruit, actually.
overall, I love this beer. and this coming from a non-IPA-preferring beer drinker...

A wonderful surprise. The bouquet is in your face fantastic. Orange, grapefruit and some hints of pine. Very smooth and surprisingly light for a 7.4. Color is a very bright golden yellow. Nice lacing on the tulip glass with a nice thick creamy head.

Sorry for the short review, but actually leaving right now to buy 3 cases before they are gone.

Excellent fresh hop brew, with all the wonderful Amarillo hop flavors any hop lover could ever ask for. This is no East Coast IPA. If you're looking for very bitter hop flavors, balanced by caramel malt, you'll be disappointed. This is on point to the style of a West Coast fresh hop IPA.

DELICIOUS!
