Nice malty backbone. Citrusy biscuity flavor. Not bitter. Combination of citra and mosaic hops is awesome. Very balanced. This is a winner.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by 7/31/14 pours a light amber color. Aroma is mild citrus with sweet malty undertones. With a name like "Fresh Squeezed" I was expecting something far more aromatic than this. Taste is similar to the nose. Sweet malt is dominant here. Mild citrus. Mildly bitter finish. Pretty unimpressed with this one. Have no idea how it’s a 98. This is a middle of the road IPA at best. Bummed. Will not revisit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught > Flying Saucer. Amber in color and in flavor. This is the maltiest / sweetest IPA I've ever had. Even SNPA or Dales is hoppier. Deschutes really missed on this one. Call it a hoppy amber ale and it's ok.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance on this beer is a little dark, if it’s called fresh squeezed, I’m thinking lemonade. The aroma comes off as musty old fruit, dust, mold, grass and citrus. But the issues with appearance and aroma are outmatched by the wonderful flavor. Papaya, mango juice, lemonade, peppermint and dewey grass. What a tasty IPA! Very glad it’s a year around option.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 Pours copper red with white head. Smell is orange and peaches and tea. Nice and fresh and fruity. Taste is hoppy and bitter. Pine flavor. Somewhat dark red ale malt flavor. Full body and crisp carbonation. Good but pretty bitter more so than the fruity hop flavor I hoped for from the initial smell, which faded into non descript hops.

At the Big Texas Beer Fest on 4/5/2014. Draft pours brown murky bronze. Aroma is juicy fruits, melon, floral hops, cantaloupe, honey dew. Taste is sweet floral melon hops that are pretty nice and almost complex. This beer is pretty delicious. big melon, but a little syrupy so I know is down a little for that.
