I recently went on a boys trip to Portland and hit 10 different breweries. Deschutes has always been one of my favorites, but the Fresh Squeezed IPA became my all time favorite beer. The flavor was exactly what I look for - lots of hops, not too heavy, citrus flavor.

Served on tap in a 22 ounce Weizen glass.
Appearance - Rust colored. Slightly hazy. Dense, tan head. Good retention. Great stickage. A fine looking brew!
Smell - Hop forward nose followed, quickly, by a whiff of earthy malt.
Taste - The hops are pronounced but not overpowering. The initial flavor is orange rinds but this is balanced, nicely, by a substantial malt backbone that is both toasty and sweet. Also, I detect a grassy, herbal flavor. Wow!
Mouth- Substantial. Tart and mildly fizzy.
Overall - My fear was that Fresh Squeezed was going to be yet another hop bomb but boy was I wrong. This beer is complex, balanced, and sophisticated. The flavors are prominent yet not overwhelming. Deschutes has, yet again, knocked it out of the park.

Color- cloudy agave. Slight head.
Aroma- like a blend of grapefruit juice and apple pie.
Taste- Starts very mildly citrus with gentle hops, moving sweeter in the mid-body and finishing with definite apple notes with a refreshingly mild hop aftertaste. An excellent and unique IPA from Deschutes. This would interest non-hopheads and newbies to the category.
Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 11/8/2013.
