3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh gain, sweet maltiness, and citrus for aroma. Mildly bitter, overkill on the caramel as usual, a decent IPA.

Pours a beautiful deep amber. Very strong caramel and citrus aromas, with a strong contrast of sweet and bitter. Balanced well but very intense, great sipping beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. I am looking forward to this. I quite like Deschutes and this beer’s name excited me on the list. Clear dark amber almost russet colour with a big beige head. Some resiny hop on the aroma that gets through the big head. It’s not as hoppy as I thought it would be. Quite light and fruity and agile actually. Not a huge overpowering the senses beer, but a very drinkable, very quaffable fruity, orange fruity, satsuma fruity beer with moderate bitterness on the finish. Extremely sessionable I would have thought. Certainly gets marks for drinkability. The 355ml bottle lasted maybe 5 minutes. Lovely but in a very understated way.

Salt Lake bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a long lasting khaki head and super thick lacing. Aroma is light fir/spruce hops with a hint of simple syrup. Lighter flavor of sweeter malt and fruity/citrus hops. Short finish with moderate bitterness. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright citrus aroma. Amber appearance with a white head with below average head retention. In the flavor the citrus hops also have spicy note. The malt contains notes of caramel, biscuit. Esters are moderate. The balance is towards the hops, but it is malty for an ipa. Body is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, while I'm not a fan of malty ipas this one tastes good. I'll buy again.

Tap at Yardhouse in Temecula, CA. Pours dark orange with a thin tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is huge citrus oils, mostly orange and tangerine. Taste is courteous and pine hop with some caramel malt in the middle and huge orange peel at the end. Palate is smooth, moderately bitter and balanced. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold bottle, from GBBF. Dark orange / red, clear, sparkling, small off-white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is card, caramel malt, light grapefruit. Body is medium, touch of carbonation. Taste is malt-forward, toffee, resin, some copper pipe, touch of tangy alcohol. Hoppy spearmint burps afterwards. OK, but I like cleaner fruit flavours in IPAs.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I was extremely dissapointed in the "IPA". I figured with a name like "Fresh Squeezed" that it would have an abundance of HOPS. WRONG. I could barely taste the hops in the IPA. Very lame.
