DetailsDripping with vivid flavors, this clone recipe is the beer equivalent of visiting your local fruit stand. Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, melon, berries, lime and passionfruit drizzle into a faint herbal, piney background. Fresh Squished's sturdy malt foundation of sweet crystal malts and toasty munich concedes to this indulgent use of Citra and Mosaic hops to achieve remarkable balance. Pale copper in color, Fresh Squished is overlaid by a fluffy, rich beige foam cap, allowing the juicy aromas to ooze out of this Pacific Northwest inspired clone.

4.9 / 5.027 ReviewsDelicious!I wish people would write what kind of water and yeast they used but anyway I used distilled from target and s05 yeast. Fermented in primary for 14 days then dry hopped in primary for 7. Kegged and put another ounce of citra and mosaic each t9 cold dry hop whIle carbonating. Wow this stuff tastes and smells awesome! Perfect summer beer will buy againJune 8, 2016Fresh Squished IPA is on tap!Shipment nicely packaged. Brewed this 12-30-15, Kegged 1-28-15. Hit both gravity readings on instructions, used the Safale US-05 Dry Yeast. Active fermentation then racked to secondary. Dry hopping the Mosaic and Citra gives the aroma of the beer a addictive reason to pour another one. If your thinking about purchasing this one just go for it! BKFebruary 4, 2016PerfectIf you love flavorful hops this is a must. I added clementine pulp to mine in the primary and added more plus their skins to the secondary. it's just perfect!June 11, 2016Great tasting crisp beer with a hoppy hint of bitter grapefruitGreat flavor exactly what I was looking for.

11 months agoMJBJust finished the last bottle and plan to make another batch. VERY GOOD....July 22, 2016Nice and RefreshingNice and easy. Followed the directions until the addition of hops and secondary at 2 weeks. I just dumped the extra hops into the fermenter and left everything hanging out for another 3 weeks before filtering into a keg. From the 1st glass I got a nice and refreshing citrus smell. Taste wise there is hints of pine and citrus, nothing overpowering and each are very accommodating to each other. I will be making this one again down the road.July 22, 2016Best batch yet!!Have brewed several kits and this one stands out above all the others. Great citrus flavor with a nice malty backbone to balance out this great IPA. Keg emptied sooner than I thought it would.July 29, 2016March 8, 2016

Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! The steeping grains for the Fresh Squished IPA consist of 0.5 lbs Weyermann Caramunich III. I hope that this helps!Is this too Citric tasting?? Subtle flavor good- just don't like too strong Citric tasting IPA.BEST ANSWER: Citra and mosaic are bursting with citrus flavors but the mark of an amazing beer is balance. There is sufficient pine and herbal notes to create a complex hop profile and tosty and full malt flavor provide balance to the hops. A dry finish and medium body make it quite refreshing and begs for a second pint.ABV?BEST ANSWER: Brewed 12-30-15 OG 1.063 hit target that was on instructions. Will update after fermentation.
