COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donít worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Goddamn if Fresh Squeezed IPA isnít the juiciest, most pleasantly balanced IPA Iíve yet tasted. The ale pours a lively, amber-orange shade with plenty of head. The latter gives you the full effect of this brewís awesome tropical fragrance. Orange, grapefruit, and papaya blend perfectly with the bready malt aromas. Tasting manages to be as rewarding as smelling. While the powerful aroma reveals the intense hopping that went into crafting this ale, the hardy malt backbone reigns in the bitterness and accentuates the fruitiness. Orange juice, peach, and mango appear most clearly in the complex tropical profile. Each sip seems to unveil another fruit while the finish is always bitter and citrusy enough to remind you of grapefruit. Just the right amount of fresh and fruity, Deschutes has crafted an approachable and endlessly enjoyable IPA.

This one is perfect. Heres why. Every time I try a new IPA I say "oh yeah this is it this is the one" well after a while every one is "the one" however, after trying fresh squeezed Iím more confident in saying that. This beer is just awesome. Itís super hoppy, super balance which is key. For me Iím not crazy about the malt. I understand and appreciate why itís there but for me Itís the hops. The aroma on this is literally fresh tropical juice. Some took a juicer and took massive amounts of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, papaya and just dumped it in this beer. Itís incredible. Probably the most tropical smelling beer Iíve had. The taste is just perfection. So much tropical fruit..mango, PINEAPPLE...so much Pineapple I canít even describe it. So fresh. Again itís like someone took all these tropical fruits and squeezed the juice and just poured it into this beer. I canít really think of any IPA that has made me this excited in a while. This one is just killer. Snag some and really appreciate the work that went into this one. It is one of a kind. Cheers!

This brew is currently a sesaonal beer by Deschutes Brewing only. This beer should be available year round. It tastes that good!

Perhaps the best Deschutes offering in a bottle. The only disappointment for me is the lack of carbonation gives palate a different mouthfeel. Still an amazing IPA.

Wow! This is the best IPA ever. Strongly recommend this beer. IMHO, better than Sculpins. A big fan of citra and mosaic hops. A big fan of Deschutes.

Draft at the pub in Portland. Holy citrusy hops, Batman! I love citrusy hoppy beers and Deschutes has hit this one out of the park. 6.3% but tastes like much more. Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma: citrus. Taste: citrus. If that sounds good to you, get to the Deschutes pub and grab a pint.

This was suggested to me by an associate at Central Market. I was hesitant at first, only because Iíve had a few other beers from Deschutes and I was looking for something different. Iím glad I listened. The citrus and floral hops hit your palate immediately and has a smooth finish. One of the best IPAís Iíve ever had. Cheers!

I LOVE this beer right now. My "go to" summer brew. Super floral and fruity IPA. Rich cooper color and a nice head. GREAT beer. Well played Deschutes.

I love this IPA. The perfect balance of hoppy greatness and perfect bitterness to make a wonderful IPA. If you are looking for a nice IPA try this out!
