Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Darren.
A: Bright gold with an off-white one-finger head that lingers down to medium sized bubbles. Thick lacing. Pretty.
S: A citrus factory featuring grapefruit, mango and pineapple.
T: Semi-sweet, smooth, balanced. A terrific caramel malt/grapefruit hop tango. Very low bitterness. Just got it in before the freshness date expired.
M: Medium with medium/thick carbonation. Very full and rich.
O: Another great reason that non-hopheads can enjoy IPA's. The balance is terrific. Recommended.

3.8/5 rDev -10%
Gorgeous glowing orange/amber color with a billowing frothy head. Perfumed and floral nose with touches of pine, tea leaf, nut and lemongrass. The flavor starts with a straight shot of hop resin, floral hop components, lemongrass, honeycomb and tea leaf. There's a nutty caramel backbone and a bitter pine finish. Fairly light easy drinking IPA. I don't get a lot of the Citra, mostly Mosaic, and this is pretty fresh, so I can't give it much higher a score.

12 oz bottle purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregon’s McKenzie River.
4.5 3.8 4 4
Appearance: clear deep red-amber with a semi-durable, frothy bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: Sweet with a touch of toffee and with a delightful but unexpected
faint hint of fruit brandy. Wayless grapefruit and hops aroma than expected.
Flavor: A touch low in hops for an IPA, but the hop load seems well matched to the malt base, so no complaints. Fruity with both citrus (including orange) and tropical (including pineapple) elements. Mild bitterness is low for style.
Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Nearly medium body.
O: excellent super-fruity IPA.

I'm a big fan of Deschutes Brewery with a particular liking of their porters and stouts. While on vacation I picked up a six of Fresh Squeezed. My expectations were pretty high based on other reviews. I have to say that I was underwhelmed. The color is a unique orange color and the beer pours with a nice foamy head, but the taste seems strange to me. It really has an orange citrus flavor (I know, no fruit was harmed) that seems unnatural. The only bad comparison is Magic Hat #9 with a strange apricot taste. Same for this beer but with orange. It just hits me wrong. I thought it might be that my palette was off but after 3 bottles I still feel the same way. I give it a mediocre review.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottle with both a bottled on AND a best before date stamped on the label. This one was bottled on 07/09/13 and it's best before date is 11/13/14, so it should still be very drinkable. This beer is part of their "bond series", whatever that means.
The beer poured a clear and beautiful shade of reddish/amber with a 1-finger white head on top. The head only lasted a minute and it didn't leave much lacing, but the color and clarity was stunning.
Nice citrus hop aroma.
This is delicious. Big citrus flavor - mostly orange, pineapple, and other tropical fruits, with a touch of pine thrown in for bitterness. There is also a hard candy sugary sweetness to it along with a touch of honey, caramel, and bready malt to balance off the hops. It's a great blend of flavors.
Creamy smooth mouthfeel, nedium bodied, and highly carbonated.
A delicious American IPA. Another winner from Deschuttes.
