An easy-drinking, gorgeous pale, made with primarily Amarillo hops. Not quite as light as Miller High Life but thirst-quenching nonetheless. AKA Solstice Pale Ale.

Pale yellow, massive white head sticks around and sticks to the sides. Lemon bitter and sweet, Something a little musky and tart lurking in the back. Taste starts off with a muted citrus blossom type approach. Personally Iíd hope for a slightly juicier aspect to it, though maybe fresher it has more of that. Where the aroma was definitely more lemon citrus, this is more satsuma and orange. Subtle. A definite wallop of bitter though, five, ten years ago I would say this would solidly be an IPA. Smoothe and crisp, carbonation may be a touch high, but overall very drinkable. An enjoyable drink, but doesnít quite reach the lofty standards set forth for it in my opinion. Fremont canít make a bad beer.

"Bright, vibrant, surprisingly light, but surprisingly hoppy and full of flavor. The only reason this was not better than their IPA is because the IPA was beyond solid as well. This would be a summer staple if available locally."

Tap at Ballard Beer Company, Seattle. Pours gold with a white head. Light grassy pine aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Lemon, light honey, pine, sponge cake... Nice piney bitter finish. Easy drinking. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I liked this beer. I went out camping and picked up something that had a sweet looking can with cool colors. It didn't hurt that it was a summer ale. I will purchase beer from Fremont brew co again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid and exceptional summer pale. Incredibly flavorful -- digging the malt notes, along with sufficient hops. But for the lack of bitterness, this would totally be an IPA -- and indeed, in some circles, could serve as one. Highly recommended.

12oz can via trade extra. Thanks, man! Pours a hazed dark yellow color with a small white head. Aromas of sharp, spicy hops with a enormous hit of earthiness aroma that I havenít smelled in a while. Taste is semi sweet, lightly bitter, earthy. Flavors of ganja, dirt weed, tropical fruit. Strange hop profile, even if itís single hopped. This beer is just weird, but in a good way. Tropical, earthy, minerally. Maybe itís the water profile. Nice hop expression, minimal malt character which letís the hops shine through. This is good shit.

In the fucken can. Pours an orange appearance with a light tan head. Really nice, dank, spicy hoppy nose with some light contras. Fairly dry flavor. Medium bodied. Delicious, easy drinking, spicy hoppy, ganja flavor. Good brew.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Can from Bobís.

A pleasant surprise. Fully-hopped APA with a new school profile (I thought there was some summit or something in there): tangerine and pineapple as expected from the Amarillo, but also grass, skunk piss, and onion. These latter flavors are in the background, though, and so the overall comes out delightful. Highly drinkable yet big, big hop flavor at 5.2% without the mineral bitterness of so many session IPAs. Well done and worth drinking by the six.

Addendum: after drinking by the six a couple of times, this is perhaps my favorite easy drinker of summer í14. Good stuff; I feel like Iím under-rating slightly at 3.7 but Iím not quite sure where to give the bump. Maybe it deserves an 8 for aroma...?

Tap at Mio Posto

After bitching about their tap list just the other night, I was pleased this evening to see that their one "seasonal" tap was devoted to this. On tap, the orange and grapefruit is even more forward, if possible. Tasty.
