Fresh Squeezed IPA, which made its debut last summer in Deschutes Brewery‘s Bond Street Series, is now moving into six-packs and becoming the first year-round brew in the series. Lauded by DRAFT Magazine, Fox News and Gayot.com as one of the top beers of 2013, Deschutes Brewery is happy to increase availability of this “new-school IPA” to fans across the country starting the first week of March.
“At Deschutes, making beer is a journey,” said Veronica Vega, assistant brewmaster, responsible for brewing operations at the company’s Bend, Ore., brewpub. “Fresh Squeezed IPA started its adventure as an experimental brew in our pubs, before moving into the Bond Street Series last summer. We couldn’t keep this beer on the shelf last year due to its popularity, so we’re excited to share this damn tasty beer with even more people this year.”
Fresh Squeezed IPA drips with juicy, citrus flavor and aroma thanks to an extravagant amount of Citra, Mosaic and Nugget hops. The unimposing malt profile of Pale, Crystal and Munich malts allow the citrus stars to shine, making a delightful, easy to drink IPA that comes in at 6.4 percent alcohol by volume and 60 International Bittering Units.
Like all of the beers in the Bond Street Series, this hop-centric brew was formerly exclusive to the brewery’s Bend and Portland Oregon brew pubs. This year, the beer will be available across most of Deschutes Brewery’s 25-state footprint in six-packs and on draft.
