Brewed by:
Deschutes Brewery
Oregon, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.
