Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured from a bottle into a Pizza Port "can" glass... because why not?

A: Pours a clear deep golden color, almost amber... much darker than most IPAs. Crystal clear, though, with 2 fingers of fluffy white head that dissipates to a fluffy film with spotty, sticky lacing. Tons of lacing is left down the side of the glass while drinking.

S: Plenty of hops hit right away alongside a nicely sweet malt, suggesting that this is going to be a really sweet beer, but in a good way. Hop character is citrusy, with a little earthiness underlying... nothing I didn't expect from "fresh squeezed." The smell of this actually lines up fairly well with peaches, something I'm not used to picking up on... it took me a minute to figure out what it was.

T/M: A lighter, but almost syrupy body with good carbonation drinks very pleasantly. Malt is just a little bready in character, but provides a nice sweetness to the sip. Finish is juicy, but then almost dries up a little as hop bitterness descends well after the sip's conclusion. Flavor is nice with sweet, juicy citrus character dominating... the flavor of peaches is evident, following the nose. So strange, but not unpleasant at all.

O: Really happy with this one. The malt's breadiness felt a little out of place, and it almost felt a little more like a pale ale than an IPA, despite the evident hoppiness. I'd rather have Hop in the Dark this season and wish this was available as a 12oz bottle, but definitely would be open to drinking more Fresh Squeezed.

Poured into a tulip glass. The pour produces such a huge off-white head that I had to pour it in a few separate tries! The head takes several minutes to fade down, and leaves a ton of lace on the glass. The liquid is a clear ruby amber with lots of tiny bubbles rising slowly. A little darker than I tend to like for IPAs, but really great-looking!

Aroma is very fruity indeed! I get, oddly, raspberries as the main note. Behind that, there's the obligatory grapefruit and citrus, along with some earthiness and a tiny bit of resin. There are also some really nice floral notes in there as well - you could almost wear this as a perfume.

Taste is raspberries again on the palate, then oranges and those weird Asian citrus fruits like yuzu. There's a nice floral delicateness in there mid-palate as well. On the swallow, the perfect amount of biscuity malts come through, followed by the slightest tinge of bitterness, before you're left with a dense, fruity aftertaste. This is just stupidly fruity, and with virtually zero bitterness. My wife, who hates almost anything with any noticeable hop character, liked this beer because of the lack of overt bitterness - there's just enough to keep all the fruitiness from being cloying.

Mouthfeel is great, too - medium-bodied with lots of carbonation, to style.

Overall, really an incredible and unusual beer. I don't understand how they got hops to have these flavors. It's so fruity it hardly tastes like hops at all. My only criticism is that it doesn't really satisfy my itch for hops when I want an IPA. But, of course, it's still an amazing beer overall!
