On tap @ Burgundian. Pours pale yellow golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is pale sweetish malt and earthy hops with light pine and lemon notes. Taste is clean crisp pale malt, dry and earthy on the back with light citrus. Honestly this is a pale ale, and a good one at that. Calling it an IPA just clouds things. Well short of Fremont’s other IPAs in both malt and hops, but an excellent and drinkable IPA.

From the tap at Fremont on 10.01.14. A: Red grapefruit and blood orange. Very citrusy. A: Somewhat hazy orange/red. T: Candied tropical fruit dominates. Maybe mango. P: Crisp. Nice bubbles on the back end. O: This is like drinking juice. There is just so much tropical fruit flavor here. I would say that this is my favorite IPA, but I say that about most of Fremont’s IPAs. It’s great that this will be available in bottles soon.

50belair (2667) - Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Nice grapefruit and citrus hop notes. The bouquet follows suit. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

tiong (4148) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Draught @ Bottleworks, Seattle, WA

Pours clear golden with a bubbly head. Aroma of fruits, caramel and malts. Taste is sweetish, fruity and caramely. Finish is a bit stuffy with some caramely maltiness and fruits. Decent.

fiulijn (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Draught at Bottleworks, Seattle
Hazy dark blond color with creamy head. Wonderful aroma of fruity hops. The mouthfeel is very dry, and a bit weak, possibly too much; not much malt flavor; strong bitterness, a bit resiny, but the final is also lightly astringent.
Not convincing, weak.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Decent though unexceptional IPA. Lacy. Not so drinkable, though not objectionable Bottleworks..

pushkinwow (2164) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pale amber with an off white head. Lots of citrus, marijuana up front but there is also a caramel and almost biscuity character that comes through as well. Moderate carbonation and body, becomes quite bitter and citrusy on the finish but still an interesting brew.

GT2 (8997) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Tap at Fremont. Pours a low haze golden with medium white foam. Webby lacing. Nose is grassy, fresh lemon, something skunky/weedy that is in most of their hoppy beers, some raw brewhouse/brewday malt sweetness. Taste is excellent butterscotch, complete biscuit backbone, orange marmalade. Boss malt showcase in the palate shows some serious brewing knowledge that is rarely seen. Powerful hops are quickly balanced by rich biscuit. Great brewing water perhaps. Impressive.
