COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Fremont’s 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.

Draft at the Seatac Seattle Taproom.

Amber pour, modest white head, good lacing. Spicy, floral hop nose. Citrus peel and pith drive the aroma, ample pine -- this is a classic c-hop profile. At 6.5% I wouldn’t call it a session beer -- maybe a PacNW session beer at best -- but it’s enjoyable enough to drink if now special enough to stand out from the day-to-day crowd of literally hundreds of c-hopped PacNW IPAs.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 12, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a light hazy yellow somewhat golden color; light carbonation is seen rising, half fingered white foamy head slowly dies and leaves a decent amount of clingy lacing. The smell had some light bitter hops - somewhat citrusy yet smooth; malts do present themselves fairly well. The taste was a bittersweet througth the malts and hops, combined nicely, light malty sweet citrusy aftertastek quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, this was a good AIPA that I would have again.

A nice discovery while in Seattle this winter. Paired perfectly with Dungenes crab cakes and green curry mussels. A nice, well-hopped IPA. Not overwhelmingly bitter but not at all sweet/malty. Wish I could find a 6-pack in VT.

Grapefruit/lemony hop aroma and flavor, and light bready malt character. Tasty bitterness--more in the aftertaste.

DuffMan (6153) - 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 (3737) - 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.

Can shared by Skyview - thanks! Light amber pour with a nice white head. Tropical nose with a slight herb or grass in there. Really nice taste - lots of resin hop flavor here and just a bit of bitterness.
