Poured from tap at Deschutes PDX. Pours a slightly hazy golden/copper hue with average head and average retention.

Good though simple and clear aromatics. Lots of citrus and a fresh and zippy hop note. Very powerful, clean, but simple. No real complexity.

Palate confirms, citrus and hops. Not really much else. It's pleasant enough though.

Texture is very nice, here is where the hops and malts really come together. Good astringency, nice balance, and a good finish.

Overall a very nice but straight to the point IPA featuring Citra hops. Worth a pint just to check it out, but nothing to search out.

A: Had this on tap at Deschutes in PDX. A nice clear orange color, nice head with great lacing.
S: Slight caramel maltiness followed by citrusy hops
T: Sweet maltiness followed by a very noticable but not overpowering citrusy hoppiness
M: Light to medium bodied beer carbonation is great
O: This is a nice beer, not overly hoppy...more like a pale than a lot of IPA's out there, very nicely balanced though. Glad I tried this.

Went to the public house on a beautiful Portland summer evening for BB XXIII. Oooh, Fresh Squeezed is on to. I remember how great that was last year, we should get that too. Wait what? What happened to this beer? Last year it was a citrus delight, this year not so much. Still a beautiful, burnt orange color. The nose has a touch of citrus, but I'm also getting a musty note that is unpleasant. The taste is a bomb. Like dissolved aspirin with a malt backbone. Those aren't citra hops as I know them.

Had on tap at the Portland Brewpub.
a-Poured a light gold color with a skinny layer of head that thinly laced along the side of the glass.
s-The smell was a pure piney hop smell.
t-A very strong pine taste upfront with a very bitter aftertaste.
m/d-This is a real slow drinker, very strong and bitter. I really enjoy IPA's, but this one disappointed me a little.

Deschutes, Fresh squeezed on pull, 6.5abv, 60IBU.

A Amber, clear, thick head. Nice lacing for the whole pint. Head covered the beer for most of the glass, but faded at the end.4

S Citrusy, grapefruit, a little sweet. 4.5

T There is a smokey flavor that hits you right up front. There is a good deal of residual sweetness, cloying, with an interesting mellow finish. Hops are present, but are not the most noteable part of the flavor profile. 4

M Medium heavy body, thick, appropriate carbonation for a cask.4.5

D Its a cask beer, it doesn't get much better. I had the Alma NW Pale on cask and liked it better. I'm not sure if the smokey flavor is from malt, a part of the yeast profile, or soemthing else. Interesting. 4

On tap at OBF, several samples consumed upon recommendation of John Michaelson, 7.22.2010.

Half finger white head, quick dissipation, some lacing. Light amber clear body, some visible streams of carbonation rising from bottom of my plastic OBF mug. Nose features a frickin' huge hop hit, pretty citrusy, along with some sweetish malts. Taste is also quite sweet, more tropical than citrus, guava, with some peppery resin in the finish, fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, some effervescence. A tasty one-off and fairly unique hop bill (I believe this is 100% Citra hops). Worth a try for all hopheads.

On tap at the OBF yesterday. Definitely one of the hilights of the festival, at least if you're a hophead. The OBF pamphlet indicates this is a single hop IPA, made entirely from Citra hops.

This IPA pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose... mama mia! This is an incredibly aromatic and skunky IPA. Wow! There is also some dank earth and dirt, but the skunky MJ aroma is nearly overpowering and overwhelming. Flavors replicate the nose to some extent (obviously, the beer does not taste skunky), with just enought sweet malt to buoy the boatload of hoppy bitterness and pine. This is a very flavorful and dry IPA otherwise, with a long, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with the beer showcasing a fairly long, almost mouthpuckeringly bitter finish. Drinkability is pretty good, though the huge, hoppy flavor profile was almost too much of a good thing. Still, it's hard not to be impressed with this totally over the top, in your face IPA. Impressive to see a brewery the size of Deschutes pushing the envelope with a beer like this.

On draught at the PDX pub, Fresh Squeezed IPA is another one using "experimental hops", not sure if that means a new variety (citra would be my guess) or just hop bill in general. 60 IBUs. Appearance is clear dull orange with a creamy white head leaving decent lace.

Smell is huge citrus, fresh squeezed indeed. Nectarine, tangerine and mandarin orange.

Taste matches the nose in regards to the citrus, but it's not as sweet. The citrus bomb of hop flavors is well balanced by the bitterness, but there's some graininess I could do without, and it is the only real malt character.

Mouthfeel is dry and slick, medium bodied.

Drinkability is good, a nice IPA with loads of flavor. Just a tad too grainy for me to really love though.
