COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bronze pour with a 3-4 finger, fluffy, oily khaki head that has excellent retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is loaded with pine, cat box and passion fruit, lots of citrus and tropical notes in there, but those are the three hop notes I really pick up on, the hops pretty much drown everything else out, a little toast and caramel and some sweet fruity notes, smells very juicy and delicious. Flavor is again, loaded with pine cat box and passion fruit, some sweet orange, berry, chewy caramel, nice toast and biscuit notes in the middle, and rolling in toward the finish come tons of fruity esters and (largely tropical) fruity and citrus hop notes. Medium body, chewy, juicy feel throughout with a light to moderate strength, blanketing carbonation. Very good, it reminds me of some of my better heavily dry hopped+keg hopped homebrews. Seriously good beer. One of the best, new to me IPAs in a while.

This is a really nice, easy drinking IPA. Great hop flavors with some piney notes. Nice amount of bitterness. Very good stuff.

Amber brew with a sweet citrus aroma. That was about the best part. After looking at it and smelling it, should have stopped there. Taste was too sweet with some citrus hops that bordered on floral. Not enough hops to really say that it was as bitter as expected but rather more like a pale ale taste than an IPA. I have tried others from this brewery and have liked them but this one is a big disappointment due to the cost. For three dollars more I could have got a 12 pack of a really good IPA (my goto IPA) rather than this 6 pack of a sad IPA.

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.

Hoppy fruity flavor, grapes, apricot, pine apples, grassy hops, cream, some caramel. Hoppy fruity finish with caramel, apricot and mango. Good beer.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Copper color with small off white head. Nose is grapefruit? Taste is a nice mix of grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Me like.

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.

lb4lb (2210) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

Experiment_Ale (650) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.
