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.

Went to the public house on a beautiful Portland summer evening for BB XXIII. Oooh, Fresh Squeezed is on to. I remember how great that was last year, we should get that too. Wait what? What happened to this beer? Last year it was a citrus delight, this year not so much. Still a beautiful, burnt orange color. The nose has a touch of citrus, but I'm also getting a musty note that is unpleasant. The taste is a bomb. Like dissolved aspirin with a malt backbone. Those aren't citra hops as I know them.

Very appropriately named. It does taste like a glass of fresh grapefruit juice. Very citrus feel to it. Nice clean refreshing taste great summer brew. Not a favorite of mine but I applaud something different.
These guys don't miss
apricot color. Average carbonation. Subtle aroma. The flavor is where this stands out. I love fresh hop brew so I came in with a different mind set would not seek out but I appreciate

Best by 7/19/14.

Appearance: Deep caramel color with brilliant clarity. Half a finger of off-white suds. Some lacing already developing from the dissipating head.

Aroma: Definitely some Citra in there lending mango to the aroma. Not much else though.

Taste: Starts with some caramel malt flavor and light bitterness. The bitterness quickly escalates but never becomes harsh or unwanted. The hop flavor covers a spectrum from mango to earthy. I'm not sure why the color is so dark on this beer because there is nothing in the flavor that suggests amber or red malts. Finish and aftertaste result in a last burst of bitterness that slowly ebbs away.

Mouthfeel: About medium in body with average drinkability and unremarkable carbonation.

Final Thoughts: Just not really feeling this one. Citra hops, when used correctly, can yield outstanding results but Fresh Squeezed seems like more of a homebrewer's first time making an IPA. Would I drink it again? Unlikely.

Dark amber with a distinct reddish tint to it. Tall tan colored head.

Smells hoppy and herbal woody with a cedar wood scent. Lesser grapefruit scent. Strange this has a distinct scent of peaches.

Starts out dry and with the taste of peach. Stays woody and dry.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall just an OK IPA.

Best by 15OCT13

Amber with a solid light cream sheet. Smells like tropical and citrus fruits with a bit of body odor and some cotton candy. Flavor is sweet with rich caramelized malts and some straight sugar, some lemons, some onion. Medium on heavy feeling with a sharp, moderate carb and a moderately dry finish. An okay beer, not impressive really.
