Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber with a foamy beige head. Lush floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is orange/apricot. Which moves on to show some floral. Marvelously fresh and fruity. Very nice.

On tap at Bottleworks, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very skunky, with loads of herbal, pot-like hops and some doughy malt. Flavour is very fresh, full of skunky, herbal hops, some pot, and a bit of doughy malt to back without really influencing the flavour. Well-crafted and highly drinkable. Surprised me that this is classified as an APA, not IPA.

Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting VI on 10/03/2014. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of earthy hops, grapefruit and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #6600. 651mL from Pear in Pike Place Market. Pours a clear, lighter orange with mega rocky, beautiful buttercream toppings. Thick lacing all over the globe. Nose is holy monkey dank, juicy passionfruit and mango style hops. Taste showcases Fremont’s unequaled ability to create a soft, composed malt backbone that balances the soft hop bitterness without there being any stickiness, abrasiveness, thick nut skin tannic bite, heavy nut oil fat density that bloats the stomach. In that sense, this deserves an easy 5 for palate as do at least three other Fremont beers, which is quite the rarity to be dished out by me. The malt extraction, softness, and balanced malt backbone shows some serious brewing knowledge that restores my faith in humanity. Each gulp of this beer, oh lord, it’s good. Honestly, this reminds me of my very first swig of Ballast Point Sculpin where I nearly dropped to the floor it was so good. I will dream of this beer.

Bottle thanks to Scott. Pours a near clear orangish amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grape fruit with some passion fruit and light grain. Flavor starts with light pine with sweet grains but has a good amount of passionfruit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2015 12-oz can, and happy to have 6 of them, believe me. The brewery sold out before some of the people drinking there could get back to the counter to buy cans. Should have gotten a case. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and surging off-white head. Huge dry grapefruit nose, definitely a bit ammoniated, but mostly showing a crisp rind-heavy grapefruit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel underneath on the mid palate, holding up a gigantic wash of grapefruit, pith, and rind all the way into a very dry finish. Does not get hot or acetic, but has a rather arid quality right before the aftertaste. Aftertaste is a bit tangy and oily. Really tastes like fresh fruit. Delicious, delicious batch this year.

Bottle:   Dark straw, some very dull golden hues, otherwise hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Slightly soily hop nose.   A little citrusy up front, otherwise some soft earthiness in the background.   Pithy bitterness, moreso than hoppy bitterness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finish is a little resiny, soil/earth has somewhat subsided, pith remains.   Pretty tasty overall.
