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.

Super fruity and juicy I PA with heavy citrus notes and lots of fruity sweetness

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.

Ahhh... Oregon. Everything is better when it's from the big O. Need to add a stellar, versatile, on target, rookie to your cooler - pick a Fresh-Squeezed from Oregon. Need to add a stellar, versatile, on target, rookie to your team - pick a Mariota from Oregon. See how I did that? Hell, Tennessee is already a much better place. So if I were you, I'd take a bottle, crack the cap, find a comfortable seat and at the first sip simply say - Ahhh... Oregon. That and, Go Ducks!

My light(ish) IPA of choice.
It's gotten to be more expensive than it's worth though... In San Francisco it's almost 12 bucks a six pack!

Love it especially on tap. Wow is good term. It's like liquid candy. Buy this over and over again. Used to only come out in 22oz bottles but now 6 packs and on tap

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a dash of haze and a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Quite attractive indeed@

Smell: brightly citrusy hops with tangerine and pineapple notes. The sweet malt gives it a candy fruit character which I absolutely love. Good lord this smells yummy.

Taste: the flavor is different than the aroma but has a lot going on. There's a tropical fruit component, but also an interesting floral character. Bitterness is low for the style, but this is a seriously flavorful and interesting IPA. Awesome.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess for the style.

Overall: tropical, refreshing and interestingly complex. Just a wonderful damn beer.

Pours a clear, copper color with an inch of sudsy, cream-colored froth. Delightful aroma smells of lychee, melons, grapefruit, and bready sweetness. Reams of lacing coat the glass as the beer recedes.

The taste features a surprising amount of grain husk and bread crust, along with grassy, slightly spicy hops (betraying the Citra’s noble heritage) and grapefruit pith. The taste is not nearly as fruity as the nose would suggest. The medium body is appropriate, but I find this to be significantly undercarbonated--it feels limp on the tongue until the hops attempt to resuscitate the mouthfeel toward the middle, with limited success.

Overall, I’m a little disappointed considering Deschutes is normally so solid. The hops are well-behaved for an IPA, but the limp mouthfeel and the wheaty, husky malt profile are substantial detractors. Even accounting for my traditional IPA-haterism, this was underwhelming.

Pours a mostly clear copper with fluffy cream colored head. rings down the glass. Smell: sugary caramel, orange citrus, grapefruit. Best by 8/6/15, with 2 months to go, but the nose is lacking some oomph. Taste: sugary pale malt backing with sweet orange, grapefruit peel, lightly bready. Mango-Isn. Nice.

Very dark coppery color for an IPA, nearly brown, slightly hazy. Great fluffy light beige head with fantastic retention and lacing.

Yeast esters, caramel malt and brown sugar, and hops greet the nose. Juicy citrus pulp, faint tropical fruit, and pine notes. (Oddly, I don't get Citra and Mosaic, which are typically stand-out hops in terms of aroma.)

Flavor follows, with quite a noticeable banana yeast ester presence. Quite sweet. Lots of brown sugar from the caramel malt without any graininess. Hops are sweet and earthy.

Very lively and smooth feel.

This brew has a month before its "best by" date, so it's not the freshest, but it has held up fairly well. That certainly explains what must be a remarkably diminished hop presence. I would love to give a fresher bottle a shot.

Great aroma, nice darker color for an IPA. Hoppy citrus that I like. Finishes a little more bitter and dry. Nice and smooth. One of my favorites.

Tastes a little malty, but well balanced with citrus. Still has great hop taste that IPAs should.

Let's just say when this first came out I drank it so often I almost got tired of it. It really is that good. Unique without being pretentious or gimmicky. Smells/tastes of apricot and stone fruits. Creamy and balanced. Success, try it.

A really great and balanced IPA. Deschutes doesn't disappoint. Grapefruity smell lives up to the name, and so does the taste--marmalade on light toast, grapefruit, orange peel, all fading to a mellow and soothing bittersweet aftertaste. Mouthfeel is moderately heavy.

Citrus, sweet malt aromas. They also come though on the taste with mild bitterness. A light lingering bitterness throughout the entire mouthfeel. Dry and sweet lingering flavors

Bottle poured into a hop tulip glass

A: Dark orange amber color with a vanilla colored head, some carbonation coming off the bottom, some lacing.

A: Citrus, orange, malts, sweet malt aromas, no alcohol on the nose.

T: Like the nose, citrus, oranges, sweet malt, mild bitterness, some slight bread characteristics, there's an orange peel bitterness at the end that is unique from other IPAs I've tried.

M: Medium mouthfeel with a dry finish, feels kind of juicy and chewy.

O: Not bad, a little on the mellow side for my liking, but a very good beer, I think I would prefer other IPAs over this, worth a try but I will not likely buy again but I would not refuse if offered.
