3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Goblet at the brewery. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. Light amber color clear with white head. Taste: A lot of caramel malty sweetness, floral hop bitterness that isn’t too big but not too small. Pretty well-balanced. Lingering bitter finish on the tongue. Med/full body. Lively carbonation; smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Overall: Surprisingly smooth, easy-drinking considering the style/ABV.

Hazy golden amber color, dense frothy white head. Light citrus, heavier pine, grass, caramel malt, and some herbal undertones. Bitter and maltier than it should be. Soft carb, medium bodied, and resinous. Some booziness in the finish.

Can sampled at Ryan’s July tasting for Vinny’s departure. Aroma is soft citrus fruits, spicy yeast and malt. Brightly carbonated with notes of floral hop, malt, yeast, spice and light papery character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Sampler at brewery. Slick dark golden color. Looks solid, highly, as if lightly carbonated. Long story short the beer is a hybrid of what I would live and not so much. Lots of juicy sweet tropical fruit hops, just as I want and I like. But then an acrid resinous green hop character at both the end of nose and flavor. Really fucks with my buds. Lovely, my type of hoppy beer but then what I don’t like. Slightly thicker slicker feel, understandable for strength. A beer meant for me is hidden in here. Otherwise, becomes a meh beer.

Brilliant DIPA in a can. Wish we could get this down here in Cali. Super on the tropical bit, while retaining sweet and bitter balance in almost perfection. Total hop candy.

From a can pour at the Sierra Nevada beer camp across America.The pour has a fruit and melon aroma with a hazy gold appearance.There was a fruity melon taste with a smooth oily hoppy texture. A great canned beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice tropical fruit aroma, with light malt: sweet, cereal. Pretty potent tropical fruit hop flavor. Subtle pepper. Pretty sweet--although not cloying, and doesn’t overpower the hops. Also some bready/cereal malt flavor. Moderate, smooth bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. Quite attractive aroma, as I get considerable tangerine, tropical fruit and light pine, with considerable orange and grapefruit citrus as well. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this well crafted DIPA, though I did pick up some heat on the finish that was a bit off putting. The tropical fruit mid palate dries out very nicely on the long and bitter finish, and while a bit boozy, this medium bodied DIPA is otherwise quite drinkable. This beer delivers a lot of flavor, and there’s definitely a lot to like in this well made DIPA from the folks at Fremont. Another very solid effort from these guys.
