I picked up a bottle of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA last week for $1.89 at The Lager Mill. I've been wanting to tr y this one and I'm interested to see how it turns out, so lets see how it goes. 2015 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a teku.

A- The label looks very nice, I really like the design and it's eye catching. It poured a nice amber color that took on a red hue when held to the light with almost two fingers worth off fluffy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a very nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and they impart some nice fruity aromas with some citrus rinds sticking out the most and a little bit of tropical fruit, piney and floral hops showing up in the background. Up next comes just a slight bit of doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart a bready, pale malt, light caramel malt and sweet malt aromas with the sweet malts sticking out the most. This beer has a good aroma, I like the balance and the hop profile.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops still being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma with the citrus fruits still sticking out the most and this time they are a little juicy. Up next comes just a slight bit of doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma. On the finish there's very low amount of medium bitterness with some sweet malt and fruity hops flavors showing up on the finish. This is a good tasting beer, the hop profile is very nice, but I wish it had a little more bitterness.

M- Smooth, a little refreshing, a little crisp, on the lighter side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is good and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and good example the style, it had everything that I look for in a good IPA and I thought the hop profile was very nice and it worked well with this beer. This beer had good drinkability, I could drink a few of these without getting bored with it. What I like the most about this beer was the hop profile and balance, it was just where it needed to be. What I like the least about this beer is the bitterness, I wish it had just a little more, but it isn't a big deal. I would buy this beer again and I would recommend trying it if you like IPA's. All in all I was very happy with this beer and a little impressed with it. It's my new favorite beer from this brewery and it's a good example of the style. Good job guys, this is one tasty IPA.

12 oz bottle poured into a table glass. Pours an amber hue, with a bright, burstingly citrus nose. Palate is malty with fruit and juicy wet hops. Mouthfeel is medium and incredibly crisp. Overall in incredible IPA. Has a perfectly balanced fruit and hop taste that is complemented by an extraordinary mouthfeel.
