Deschutes Fresh Haze Picmonkey

Fresh Haze IPA


Deschutes Brewery

Bend, Oregon

Style: Hazy IPA

Alcohol: 6.5%

IBUs: 45

Serving Style: 12 and 19.2-ounce cans, kegs

Availability: 30 states and DC

Appearance:   “Well, it’s not crystal clear, but I guess the style is not to be that way. It’s seems to be a nice light golden color with that characteristic ‘haze’.”

Aroma:   “Wow, there’s some citrus going on here. I’m sure that it’s accomplished, but it almost like fresh orange juice was added.”

Taste:   “There’s a good bite from the hops, but they don’t seem to overpower, as with some IPAs.  The overall impression is one of fullness, roundness. It’s a nice balance.”

Food Affinity:   “This is tough. I’d try to match some rich citrussy-flavored dish. Maybe pieces of chicken breast in a sticky orange glaze. Yeah, throw in some fresh ginger and red pepper flakes, too. What’s that called? I don’t know yet, I think I just made it up.”
