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.

Another American ipa that's just not my style. I prefer the west coast ipas. But if you like malty piney resin with a bite this one's for you

Citrusy to the max on smell and taste light feel. Easy to pick up and live by all

Nice, juicy, citrusy. Dear Lord, help me this is delicious.

The only bad thing about this beer is that it is literally too drinkable and that the bottle doesn't refill infinitely.

I have not come close to tasting every IPA out there and most likely never will, but I seriously doubt I will every try an IPA that surpasses Freshly Squeezed. It s the best of the best as far as I am concerned. Bitter like a good IPA should be, but goes down nice and easy. If this was as rare as other IPA's such as Pliny than I think it would be as highly sought after. A truly world class beer

Tastes just as hoppy as any other IPA you've ever had, but somehow doesn't overpower. A beautiful amber hue that's just mildly cloudy.

12oz bottle best by 7/10/15 poured into a SN/DFH IPA glass
A: Hazy burnt-orange with a solid two-finger head that lingers
S: Orange/grapefruit with hints of herbs and caramel
T: Matches the nose. Tons of citrus with a nice herbal kick, a bit of tropical fruit and a slightly earthy finish
M: Medium-bodied, the freshness/crisp note here is really nice
O: Fresh and refreshing. Not the most complex IPA I've had but one that I'd drink any time and will definitely get again

Malt comes through more so than I typically enjoy but real nice mouthfeel to this one. Was hoping for brighter hop presence but can see why folks dig it. Smooth and flavorful. Enjoy.

Refreshing, deliciously citurusy. About as close to fresh squeezed juice as an IPA can get.

Sweet flavors of mint, orange, honey, vanilla. Exceptionally well blended hops. Not overpowering, very subtle mix of great flavors. Smooth as silk and no chewy residue or aftertaste like some less sophisticated or more heavy handed IPA's. One of the greats. It is pure enjoyment.

Pours a dark amber in color with a thick white head that lingers well. Heavy amounts of lacing that last well into the session.

Orange and grapefruit aromas greet the nose with a dose of pine and a slight caramel malt character.

The initial sip starts with grapefruit and orange peel up front and finishes with a welcome balance between caramel malt and hop bitterness.

Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation and dry.

I really, really enjoyed this IPA. Very complex and very well balanced. Thank you Deschutes for once again making a killer brew.

6.4% ABV, 60 ibu.
A - amber or copper color, clear with one finger light yellow head.
S - super lychee, pineapple, tangerine, and any other tropical smell!! sooooooo summer! the fruity aromas are even stronger than the punch bowl IPA! very representative of citra and mosaic hops!
T - I would say it's kinda mid-thick body, tongue was coated with the bitterness at the very beginning, and then the malty took over, last for a while.
O - it is a very delicious beer, perfect choice for the patio, a sunny day! especially the aromas, great job on that!!

Beautiful lasting foam -smells of peach with a touch of apricot. The flavor follow nicely with bright citrus hops. This is an outstanding IPA.

One of my favorite IPAs. Perfectly balanced brew, bitters & citrusy goodness unite! I couldn't believe how refreshing this is. One of the few beers I literally have to make my self sit and sip to enjoy every drink. This one was a game-changer for me.

Look was a bit darker than I was expecting and crystal clear
Smell was less citrus/fruity than I was expecting
Taste was more bitter than I was expecting
Feel was as expected!
Overall more of a bitter "west coast" style IPA. I was expecting more of a citrusy/tropical experience. It's a good IPA, again just not what I was expecting.

Decent Citra hop flavor, not much aroma, but in the end a great taste and flavor.

Quick review. Citrusy & fruity as hell. Unbelievable depth of flavor that covers sweetish fruit to pucker-inducing bitterness. Malt is just enough to do the job, & the job is to accentuate the FRUIT. I couldn't drink this brew everyday, but it's a nice treat.

Enjoyed one at Churchill's San Marcos. Very good IPA. Fruity aroma. Very fresh.

Had this again twice recently. Once on tap in Colorado and another a bottle from a friend. Still think it's really yummy. Great fresh IPA. Nice hops taste and aroma. Tasted a little bit of grapefruit. I want more!

This is a delicious and original IPA. Easily a go-to IPA, or go-to beer for that matter. I haven't tasted an IPA this well balanced in a while. Slight citrus tones that aren't overpowering to the hops and aroma.

Fruit Roll up Ipa is what they should call it. Very Sweet, has more malt than your typical west coast ipa and its pretty well balanced over all, however i have to ask if it's almost too sweet. I like my ipas refreshing and crisp, but this literally tastes like oily juice.
