22oz bottle, poured a slightly golden color with a white head. Aroma was juicy citrus grapefruit, light, sweet malts. Flavor has a nice tropical mango note, with some light orange peel. Carbonation just about right. Pretty refreshing.

Clear orange, creamy head. Pleasant piney aroma, but not very strong. Initial bitterness gives way to caramel malt flavor. Solid effort.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp slightly hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of great hops with pine and pineapple the strongest smells, some solid malts and a good herbal note. Medium-bodied; Creamy, almost filling malt flavour at first with a very definite passionfruit and pineapple and guava flavour and a touch of hay and grass on the finish, but the hops are bar none the strongest here. Aftertaste shows a good malt backbone, some nice light sweet flavours, but a great tropical hoppiness that lasts indefinitely - very nice. Overall, a superb IPA with great hop notes, a smooth malt backbone and enough depth and complexity to be one of the better beers of this style that I’ve had in a long time - plus the can makes it that much better. I sampled this twelve ounce can puchased from Whole Foods in Seattle (WestLake), Washington [state] on 08-February-2013 for US$3.49 sampled at home across the country in [the real] Washington on 13-June-2013.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tan to gold pour with densely concentrated thin layer of white head and lacing. Floral hops predominate aroma with a basil herb or marijuana scent mixed in. A little light on the aroma. The taste on this one is on the british ale side of things, in a way good way. Skunky malt and floral hop (lavender?) taste. Very nice. Average carbonation, creamy mlouthfeel and clean finish. Thus far my favorite from Fremont.
