Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA offers intense citrus flavor

Fresh Squeezed IPA
India Pale Ale
Deschutes Brewery/Bend, Oregon

This IPA is named for its intense citrus characteristics, which are creatively illustrated on its label depicting a hop cone being "juiced" for its oil. Upon pouring the IPA into your glass, you are met with a blossoming citrus aroma and a hazy orange hue. Pale, Crystal and Munich malts are balanced with a generous dose of Nugget, Citra and Mosaic hops, which produce a strong citrus flavor reminiscent of fresh grapefruit. A tremendous aftertaste that lingers for a dozen seconds or more after swallowing makes this a hophead's dream. Although it's fortified with a heavy helping of hops that combine for 60 IBUs, it's not overly bitter, as the hops are mainly used for flavoring. Originally a favorite at Deschutes' brewpubs in Portland and Bend, Oregon, it's now available for the masses to enjoy. However, if you see Fresh Squeezed IPA in stores, snatch it up quick, as it's only available June through September.

Note: The citrus hop flavors in this IPA will intensify as it warms up.
