COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Fremontís most famous outdoor sculpture, Waiting for the Interurban, Interurban India Pale Ale offers the adventurous beer lover a warm embrace of organic Gambrinus roasted pale malt swirled with a hand-selected blend of flavor malts and filled with the rich spice of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops. Interurban India Pale is a session beer, eminently drinkable throughout the year.

DuffMan (6743) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hazy orange-gold body, thick creamy head. Aroma is sweet pine needles and grapefruit rind. Piney hops really kick you in the mouth, resinous anda lite spicy, ending with a minty note. Nice medium-sweet malts. Long bitterness. Awesome!

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Arrives from the tap with a 1/2-finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer is an amber color that shows a clear, copper-amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of ruby-red grapefruit zest, ripe tangelos, backing notes of peppery pine, and a bit of herbaceousness that perhaps has some hemp like notes to it. The malt provides some whole grain cracker like aromatics and a bit of dried straw to the aroma.

The beer has a solid bitterness that is pretty well balanced by a chewy, but not overly intrusive malt character. The malt provides a a soft, creamy texture to the body and there is a bit of offsetting prickly carbonation. Hop flavors of course dominate with notes of bitter grapefruit zest, peppery herbal notes, lots of pine, light lychee, tangelo zest, perhaps a touch of kumquat, and some floral, peach-leaning notes.

This is a solid IPA, nothing crazy, and in truth the malt character is a bit more than I would usueally like, but the beer is just well done and ballanced for an IPA, and I find I am enjoying this more than I would have expected.

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Had this on tap several times, excited to try from the bottle. Bottle date: they donít care, so neither do I! A: pours a copper ale with two fingers of peanut head which is thick and sticks around for quite some time. Cobweb lacing. Excellent clarity. Good looker. S: Grapefruit, citric rinds, resin, plenty of pine. This is PNW hop profile baby. The malts are sweet and present, I think this is nice, not great but nice. T: Bitter and earthy, the yeast may play a significant part here as I donít recall this being in the tap version. The malts come through with a hint of metallic flavor. Flavor isnít as good as I recall. Nice, but nothing special.\ M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. thick slick finish. O: Above average IPA, sessionable and quenching. I would advise those seeking to have a pull from the tap before bottle version. Serving type: bottle 08-05-2011

pushkinwow (2008) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a velvet cream head that lasts for the entire drink. Wet hops with a hint of citrus and tropical notes but then the strong resin flavours dominate,, malty finish. Moderate carbonation and body, nice bitterness, dry, long crisp and tasty finish.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very clear light amber color with very little of a white head on it. Nose is really strongly hoppy, in a really pleasant way. I get slight bits of floral elements in there, but a strong bit of grapefruit. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with some subtle fruity elements. Very drinkable and pleasant beer. Glad I picked this up.

bmerz (708) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Can 6 weeks old. Pours pale golden with an impressive soft white head and lace, fully lasting in an IPA glass. Aroma is soft fresh grain and a modest bouquet of hops featuring cedar and not ripe tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with a grapefruit bitterness pronounced but not dominating throughout. Body is medium, carbonation is soft, and the feel is a bit gritty. Very much an easy and classic quality IPA.
