Denny Conn, co-author of Experimental Homebrewing doesn’t use the word “clone” when replicating a commercial beer, he uses the word “homage.” So, when Amahl Turczyn, assistant editor of Zymurgy magazine, set out to clone Deschutes Brewery’s Fresh Squeezed IPA, he did so with the idea of homage in mind.
The name Fresh Squeezed IPA gives you an idea of what’s in store when you brew this clone. First and foremost, you should drink this beer fresh. This hop-centric IPA has big, piney hop aroma that’s full of fruit and peppery notes. It drips with juicy citrus and grapefruit flavor thanks to the Citra hops, while the Mosaic hops present soft, fruit flavors like honeydew. A mild malt profile of pale, Munich and crystal take a back seat to the hops, making this easy to drink IPA. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
