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.

Beautiful pour of apricot, apple & papaya. Subdued strength, low to medium carbonation. very pleasant, quaff-able. Low end all the way around but that is an attractive feature these days. Finish starts sweet, toasty then attenuates dry in your mouth which would explain not being a big beer to start but extremely well fermented & balanced. Had my first Deschutes in 1980 & still like them 34 years later....

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A-poured with 2 fingers of suds which lingered for quite some time. Beautiful, clear amber with a hint of red.

S-tropical all the way (think banana, pineapple, mango) with some toasted malt to balance things out.

T-again, loads of tropical fruit with some spiciness to the finish.

M-a touch thin but that might just be that it's a relatively "light" IPA compared to many of the 7+ abv beers. It lingers a bit, which I like. Low-med carbonation.

O-Deschutes knows what they're doing. This a really nice, enjoyable IPA with an interesting balance of hops to malt. I'll add this one to my rotation.

12oz. bottle poured into imperial pint glass. *reviewing from brief notes*

A: Deep, clean copper hue with a large bleached khaki colored head, frothy in texture. Head retention is nothing short of wonderful and the lacing down the glass is almost unreal. Picture perfect.

S: Tons of juicy grapefruit aroma, perhaps hints of orange. Malt is very understated and just barely peeks through, adding only a little nuttiness to the scent.

T: Just as the nose suggested, Fresh Squeezed IPA is very hop-forward and juicy—lots of fresh grapefruit in the flavor. Malt makes more of an appearance on the tongue than it did in the nose. A faint caramel sweetness, a bit of nuttiness, and an almost wood-like flavor(?) in the finish keeps this one from becoming really bitter. I would have liked a little more bitterness, but nothing about this can constitute a complaint.

M: Carbonation is a bit on the weak side, but it's not alarmingly weak... just enough to keep it crisp feeling. Solid medium body, doesn't overpower the mouth, but feels comfortable enough to take big swigs. Goes down smooth and easy. Leaves tongue a bit sticky, allowing flavors to really hang around after the beer's gone down.

O: Deschutes continues to impress! I'm starting to think that the folks brewing over there in Bend, Oregon couldn't make a disappointing brew if they tried. Fresh Squeezed IPA is damn near perfection in a 12oz. bottle. HUGE hop flavor that's perfectly balanced by malt presence, a mild mouthfeel that keeps this quaffable even in the heat of summer, and an ABV under 7%, which certainly makes this relatively sessionable and perfect for gameday or BBQs! If I were wearing a hat right now, I'd be tipping it to Deschutes. Truly a great beer.
