Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA: Awesome But Pricey

I'm a big fan of the Deschutes line and this one is a worthy addition. Fresh Squeezed has the musty smell of an old library. It pours a lovely clear bronze color with a thick head the color of a manila folder. 

The taste is faintly sweet with a hint of almond bitterness. There is no taste of grapefruit, citrus or fresh cut pine as you might expect but the flavor is unique enough and is even better on draft (based on a growler of this that I tried recently). Too bad this one runs in the $11/six pack range. At that rate this will have to be an occasional splurge here at Beer Rant HQ. 

(Shout out to Kate and Dane, btw.)

The label says it all.

There's a burro on the label of this "Mexican ale" to remind me of one very important point: I'd be a jackass to but it a second time.
