I really like this. A great texture holds a wonderful balance of citrusy fruit and mellow woodiness. Itís very East Coast, very drinkable and moderately bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
4.6 overall on 06.25.14. RE-REVIEW: Poured 06.21.16. A: Citrus and green vegetable. A: See through light orange body. T: Follows the nose. There is a twinge of maple, but I would dismiss it as part of my imagination if I didnít know that this was aged on maple bats. P: Lots of resin and smooth. Nice. O: Last yearís Chinook and Mosaic version was better than this yearís Equinox version. It was like an orange sickle/maple bar. Now, itís solid, but not as great.

12 oz can, thanks brenn79. Canned 5/16/15, about a month and a half ago. Aroma is citrusy, piney, dank. Pours hazy copper with a large off-white head with good retention. Taste is medium level bitter backed by a candy sweetness. I feel thereís a vegetal-ness thatís trying to creep in here and fuck everything up, but I wonít allow it. In another week I feel the invader will have taken over and eaten the beerís soul, so better now than never. Good, would have been better fresher.

I remember when this was first brewed by Mariners pitcher Chris Ray remember tracking down the first batch of this beer, and have loved getting it ever since. This is a solid IPA nothing special though, other then the purpose. Summer hops, citrus, crisp flavor, really enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can- Pours dark orange with a large white head that reduces fairly quickly and large white particles floating around, the rest of the sixer i will be more careful not to disturb or tip the can before pouring and leave a half ounce or so in the can. The aroma is strong orange zest, dank piney hops, some light caramel malt, spicy peppercorns. The taste is very hop forward, the malt is a bit heavy for me, sticky, resinous, the oranges come through mostly in the finish, the slugger bats were a cool concept that imparts a dry cedar like finish (i know they are made out of maple). I just wish it was lighter, this would have been a home run.

On tap @ Fremont. Pours clear dark orange with thin white head. Aroma is heavy orange fruit and zest, with floral aromatic hops on the back. Taste is clean, sweet, slightly nutty caramel malt, solid orange - though not nearly as much as on the nose, and crisp light hops on the finish. Maybe a faint woody note from the maple bats, but not much. Lacks the hop punch of Interurban, but orange notes make this a light, refreshing IPA.

On tap @ Century Link Stadium, Seahawks vs Panthers divisional playoff game. Iím uncertain whether this is the correct IPA from Fremont, but Iíll place my rating here. This wasnít quite as deeply copper toned as the Schooner. It had a brighter, fruitier hop profile too. So great to have quality beers in a stadium setting!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can purchased recently but -- now that I see thatís a summer IPA -- not particularly fresh.
Orange-brown pour, coarse foamy amber head. Surprisingly perfumy aroma. Orange peel, unusual-for-the-style nuttiness, aged hops. Unfortunately, the aged hops are well apparent in the flavor. A little bit of sweetness, that nuttiness again, orange zest in addition to the orange from the hops. Aged on Louisville Slugger bats...well I never! Pretty drinkable; nice beer. Iíd like to try one fresh and have bumped the score here slightly to estimate what that would be like.
