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.

fidelis83 (2003) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 13, 2013
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.

Draft in Seattle. Good perfume, sweet hops. Juicy. Some balanced bittering, lots of citrus fruit. Nothing terribly special but a nice draft option

Travlr (13412) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft at Paradiso Georgetown. Clear deep amber gold color, cream colored head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice pineapple and grapefruit aroma. Taste is citrus, tropical fruit. Nicely balanced with a dry, bitter finish. Good stuff.

c0fein (241) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2014
355ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Best by 12/11/14.

Copper colour with a white head. Flavour of fruits, resin, caramel. Not so bitter, not so fresh. Aroma is fresher than flavour. Wanna taste fresh one some day.

TimE (3365) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2014
Reminds me of a Madonna song. Strike a pose there’s nothing too it. Hop juice with no backbone. Simple plain. Can’t belive this is rated so high.

manuelMTL (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours an almost clear amber with a dense white head. Lots of floral and citrussy hops in the nose. Fresh tropical fruit mixture. In the mouth, the mango, citrus and grapefruit flavours merge to a freshly squeezed silky smoothie with a touch of breadiness and a high malt sweetness. Medium but persisting pine bitterness. Medium carbonation. Highly enjoyable fruity IPA!

The nice thing about this ale is that the name describes exactly the taste. It is embedded with a "fresh squeezed" flavor of citrus and hops. The picture on the label makes you think that they did possible ’squeeze’ a hop to achieve these flavors and aromas. Quite refreshing and a new take on an IPA style.

Oly (46) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Golden with thick, long lasting beige head. In both the aroma and the taste, I can clearly taste citrus, sweet/mango, and floral hops, and they are really well balanced. The hops dominate everything about this beer without being too bitter. Excellent!

Dark Golden color, with small fluffy white head, some lacing, some fragrance and plenty of citrus, clean finish, maybe just a bit thin,

Overall very good ipa, aroma is very good. Was a tad bit underwhelmed with the bitterness- only thing that held this beer from breaking into my top 5 IPA
