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.

nose: it almost smells like wine...baked apple, wood, a bit earthy, blossoms. yum! palate: quite bitter but still pretty much like apples both in taste and texture...thereís even acidity! i dont know how they pulled this off. itís also a bit oily and tannic. woodsy bitter finish rushes in with a strong spiciness and soapiness at the end and is almost too much after what came before. still...pretty damn tasty

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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 12 oz can, thanks Amber. I must have gotten an expired bottle the last time I had this. Hence, the reexamination. Aroma is great! I get tropical fruit, cotton candy, floral notes, pine. Pours nearly clear old gold with a large white head with excellent retention and lace. Taste is candy sweet with a nice bitter edge. This is a fine IPA. I donít know what was going on the first time I had this.

12/9/11 rating: Bomber. Bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Washington IPA #2. 6.2 % ABV (and they call this a session beer on the label...WTF?). Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium cream-colored soapy head with decent retention; leaves constellation-like lacing. Aroma is more peach than the citrus and pine the Iron Horse displayed. Itís also a bit floral. I also get a hint of dirty dishrag after it sits for five minutes or so. Taste is bittersweet and grainy. Has a bready finish. Prickly mouthfeel and medium body. Overall, another solid IPA, but maybe not quite as good as the Iron Horse. Addendum: the dirty dishrag character starts showing itself in the flavor after it warms up more. Once it warms up, the flaws show through, making it obvious this is pretty substandard. Score lowered from a 3.7 to a 3.2. 6, 4, 6, 4, 12 = 3.2

Bomber. Beautiful c hop profile aroma and flavor. A little bit of peppery spice finished off with some grapefruit citrus. Nice malt body with some caramel and candi sugar sweetness. Nice wafting citrus aroma. Iím kind of into this one.

Big thanks to Matt (mfavoino) for sending this guy my way. Bomber served in a Bellís stemmed tulip. A: Pours a chilled orange color with some a big foamy head forming on the pour. Great retention. It recedes slowly to a massively thick ring and leaves great, sticky webbing down the whole glass. S: Nice tropical fruit bursts. Some pineapple and melon. Sweet doughy malts on the back end. T: Nice pear, apple and mango flavors. Thereís a little grass in the middle and the finish is cleansing sweetness from some cracker-like malts. M: Medium to light bodied and a solid carbonation level makes this guy an easy drinker. O: This was very, very solid and highly drinkable. I was stunned at the price point ($5.99) for this guy and would be frequently buy it if I had access. Great value beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-20-2012
