5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Cask @ Brouwerís Cafť:   Pale golden, faint haze, moderate to large frothy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing.   Fairly fragrant nose, hops, pine, a little citrus.   Similar tongue, bright but not green.   Very smooth for being 8.5%, almost too smooth!   Not overly abrasive, not a malt bomb, well balanced, but more like a 1ĺ IPA.   I will say, that because it is so smooth, clean, and not the biggest IIPA, it would be really easy to drink multiple of these.   Good good, I finished my glass too soon!

12 oz can packaged it looks like 7/20/15. Says the IBUs are at 1 billion. Prompts a good laugh. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Good amount of citrus on the nose with some passion fruit/mango notes in there as well. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter flavor with some grapefruit rind and a hint of nail polish. Pretty dry finish. The abv doesnít show too much. Nice.

Wombata (534) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2015 Can from The Beer Shoppe in Yakima. Aroma: Expansive piney and grassy hop and passion fruit plus tropical fruit. Palate: Lively carbonation accentuates the piney hop flavor and bittering without going overboard. Flavor: Pine and grass attack with full on passion fruit, apricot and tropical fruit onslaught. Comment: Big malty body is well matched with the hop flavor bitterness. This succeeds and I prefer it to Fremontís Pale Ale and IPA which IMO have a few problems.

Beaver (1469) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2015
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little fruit and resiny grassy hops that have a harsh tarry finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an OK DIPA. The hop profile is a bit harsh.

jkwood04 (4811) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 23, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral, piney and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A solid imperial IPA but maybe a little to malty.

Can (12oz #3): Pretty clear golden with big white soapy head. Strong aroma, pineapple, sweetness. Taste is heavy on the malts, medium plus body. pineapple bitterness in the end. I think I like The Sister better.

WABeerFiend (327) - - JAN 18, 2015
08.26.14 canned date. Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip on 09.20.14. A: Tangerine, pineapple, and biscuity malt. A: 2 1/2 finger head. See through blood orange body. T: Tangerine, hop resin, and pineapple dominate. Honey is subtle. P: Creamy with a crisp back end. Perfect carbonation. Medium chewiness. O: Itís a West Coast IIPA that I love. Fremont is local, but they make some of the best beers that Iíve ever had. This one is no exception. I fell in love with it immediately.

22 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer. It does have a batch number that doesnít make much sense to either Brian or I but itís clear it a fresh bottle.....orange, mostly clear color, lasting head retention with spiderweb lacing down the side of the glass. Aroma is pineapple, candied orange and some pine hops.

Fruit upfront which reminds me again of pineapple with tropical fruit hints. But donít let the fruit fool you, this has the four Cís of hop variety that gives a big bold lingering pine blast in the finish to let you know this is from the west Coast! The mouthfeel has a nice lively tingle in a normal medium body. The four Cís are on display very nicely in this DIPA, another finely crafted beer from this brewer.
