My long awaited taste of a highly sought after and reputable IPA. I ordered Deschute's Fresh Squeezed IPA from Tavour with high expectations.
It pours a cloudy amber color with a khaki foam head. A sudsy swirl of film retains throughout as does a scattering of lace.
The title of this beer evoked for me citrus aromas redolent of freshly squeezed orange juice. Sure enough there is a strong orange and grapefruit character in the nose. However, there is so much more. Hints of tropical fruit, papaya and mango compliment things. A generous helping of pine, floral and dank adds an herbal and earthy twist.
I must admit that out of the four bottles I drank over the course of a week, I progressively began to appreciate its qualities over time. For example, with my first bottle I perceived an almost clean flavor with a rather modest hops aroma. However, with subsequent servings I began to appreciate the smoothness, the subtle flavors and sublime balance of malt and hops. For sure this IPA has a depth of character despite not being a hops bomb. Unbelievably drinkable and sessionable. The juicy hops coat the mouth with orange, grapefruit, berries and papaya. This is wonderfully balanced by a pine and floral hops finish that adds a gentle and dry bitterness. A great combination of juicy and earthy hops. Medium body with a creamy amber malt backbone.
Some IPAs evoke bright colors due to their bold and aggressive hops character. This IPA evokes a subtle and darker color with a more understated and elegant craft. I thought it was wonderful

Look: very beautiful gold look, much like your drinking gold rather than a beer.
Texture: very smooth. A little thick, considering it's an IPA, but satisfying.
Taste: absolutely phenomenal. Enjoyed every sip. Awesome IPA, while sitting outside on a hot day, to just unwind with. Has very complex notes of different fruits which is awesome. Great taste.
Smell: smells very fruity, bold, and inviting.
A must have when it comes to ipa' s. I usually stay away from them, but this ipa has changed my outlook completely. Deschutes is a very good brewery and I continue to be impressed.

From a 6-pack marked best by 10/19/17. Pours a burnt orange color with a half finger of head. Sour grapefruit smell. Slight syrupy feel. Sour grapefruit taste with a pine resin finish. Pretty smooth for the amount of hops in this.

Nice amber gold with a good haziness, lots of foam and sticky lacing. Smells very good, loads of citrus, hops, floral, pine. The taste is exceptional, very full bodied hoppy goodness, loaded with citrus, sweet floral, and a mild bite. This is one fantastic IPA, I am really shocked how good this beer is, very nice.
