Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ccrida on 12-31-2009

This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of Citra and Mosaic hops. Don't worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

A very good beer and the best thing about it is I have seen it places I never expected to find a decent beer.

Oily, resinous mouthfeel more like a double IPA. less hops than I was expecting, some floral notes, a little bitter on the end but I thought it was pretty standard.

Dark caramel colored with a not quite white head that retains well. Smell is nice but not as much hop aroma as I would have expected. A bit sweet and rather enjoyable. I wish it was more citrusy considering it is hopped with Mosaic.

Not a bad IPA, but a touch disappointing from this brewery. This sampling was from a 12 oz. bottle, fairly fresh. Previously sampled on draft and it was much better, bordering on fantastic.

Try it on draft.

12oz bottle. Best before 9/15/15 (enjoyed on 6/27/15)

Pours an attractive dark copper-amber body with a thick 1 inch off white head. Some retention and lacing

Prominent smell hit me as I poured it. Lots of tropical fruit, grapefruit and peach. Very nice...

Taste mostly follows the smell . What bitterness there is, tastes slightly tart like a grapefruit. There is also a taste of sweet malt that balances it out very well.

Medium, slightly creamy feel

Overall a very nice citrus forward IPA. If you are going to call an IPA Fresh Squeezed (and charge a little more for it then your regular IPA's) It had better be over the top in citrus flavor. I think this one makes it just over that hill...

A deliciously tasteful IPA. Color is almost a reddish/pink but it has a great hoppy flavor. Definitely recommend this one to everyone I drink with.

Solid from deschutes. I can always count on them! Nice addition to their IPA portfolio along with Hop Henge and Chasin Freshies. Had it on tap. Beautiful hop flavor and nice mouthfeel.

A+ IPA for anyone loving a citrus dominated IPA rather than a piney dominate one. Noticeably darker than most IPAs with very nice malt/hop balance. Excellent mouth feel with a clean finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle dated 8-27-15. Pokal glass.

Appearance: Way darker than expected. Pours a very hazy dark amber with 2 fingers khaki head. Fairly little visible carbonation.

Aroma: Citrusy hoppiness. A little subdued. Mosaic hops smell a god deal like Chillwave. Awesome retention, decent lacing.

Taste: IPA heaven for me. Really hoppy, with balance. Malt-forward arrival, turns citrusy, then across mid-palate malts develop fully, turning a touch sweet, then into a lightly bitter (for an IPA) finish. I notice there is something really astringent about this beer, and that was in Mirror Pond, too. Perhaps something in the water?

Mouthfeel: Heavier side of medium Carbonation is greater than it appears, but on the lighter side. Somewhat astringent, cleansing finish.

Overall: This is right up there with Sierra Nevada Torpedo; a very balanced IPA. Quite pleasant. Utterly lacking that piney/resiny character of some Simcoe-heavy brews; instead focused on the citrus/floral/tropical/grassy end of the spectrum.

Fresh Squeezed is a perfect name for this IPA. It has an initial citrusy taste that gives way to a smooth, bitter finish.

Golden amber color and a creamy head that dissipates. Clarity is fine but not brilliant.
Aroma is killer - lots of big juicy hops with only slight caramel malt support.
Spectacular flavor. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Huge tropical fruity hop character.
Substantial body for an IPA. Moderate carbonation. Somewhat creamy.
An awesome IPA that is a great example of how to use newer Citra and Mosaic hops. Juicy and drinkable. I'm thrilled that it is becoming more available.

Pours a copper orange with a bright white head that sticks all the way down leaving a web down the glass. Citrus zest and malts in the nose. Drinks really smooth and creamy mouth feel. A big malt bill meets the hops and balances nice. Citrus hops and slightly resinous. Overall, this is a really solid brew and I'll be coming back from more after trying a solo.

Had this on tap at Ginger Man TX. Put it up right next to the Sculpin Grapefruit IPA. Amazing part is, Deschuttes tasted more like fresh fruit, more so than the Sculpin, yet has no fruit juice (Sculpin does). Both are world class and can't go wrong.

Stumbled across this (cold) last time I was in Total Win. Had to try it just based on the name.

Appearance - clear amber with a pale/khaki head.

Smell - loads of citrus followed by grass.

Taste - not much citrus considering the smell. Sweet malt, biscuits, and herbs. Nothing what I was hoping for--again, based on the name.

Mouthfeel - light, more like a pale ale.

Drinkability - I'll probably try this again if I'm able to buy it somewhere else; not sure this was the freshest "fresh squeezed" out there.

Not as fruity as I was hoping. When you call it "fresh squeezed" I think of fruits. But nonetheless it is quite solid.

The lacing on this is unlike any other I’ve seen. It has the look of a champ. Citrusie for sure, but not quite as much as I expected for a beer called ‘fresh squeezed’. But outstanding flavor nonetheless. I’d drink this every day if drinking every day was part of my MO. This beer is everything that’s right about IPA.

Fresh Squeezed is a seriously good looking and great smelling beer - from the pour it kicked up a beautiful, full thick head whilst I got a whiff of those juicy citrus fruit notes on the aroma side. The look is copper and burnt orange - tantalizing on the eyes. The 'best by' date on the bottle is September so this should be relatively fresh. The scent of satsuma rind comes across as a big note here, along with some grapefruit. There is plenty of balance on the body - feel is medium-full but not overly so. The bitterness is quite low - there is a sweet note here - some sugar to balance everything out.

Love it. Year round, and vaguely reminds me of a rye IPA, which are too damned hard to find.

Crisp, complex and balanced flavor. Fresh squeezed is quite an appropriate name.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Clear amber with tons of off-white head that settles slowly, leaving some nice lacing.
Smell: Tropical (mango) and citrus (grapefruit) fruit abound, some pine too.
Taste: Definitely on the sweet side with lots of fruit. Some spice and pine in a moderate bitter finish
Feel: Medium bodied, mild-moderate carbonation, pretty smooth

Overall: A mouthwatering IPA with solid maltiness to balance the enormous fruity hops character. If anything this is a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but it's still within reason and obviously very enjoyable. I also like the moderated ABV and the price tag - a great value.
