3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, served through randall with mosaic hops. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, hop oils. Flavor of hop oils, fresh bitter grassy hops, garlicky hops, crackery malt, more hop oils in the finish. This is a hop bomb for sure, although the underlying malt base could be stronger.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Bronze with crisp head. Honeyed floral grapefruit aroma. Body has a solid malt quality, with some honey malt flavor and barely discernable graininess. A bit of wet shoe intermingles with reserved grapefruit. Pretty reserved bitterness. Re-rated 3-20-10: Rather non-descript hoppiness. Grainy and mildly hopped.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Nice golden hue and nice lace. Nutty nose. Full of flavor yet easy to drink. Subtle sweetness with hints of bread. Hops are floral and mildly bitter. Really good pale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can given to me by bvc. The pour is a mostly clear orange golden with a full two inch off white head. The head falls with splotchy lacing. The aroma is floral lemon peel bitterness along with cracker malt. The taste is sharply floral and lemon hops up front, then some pine hop, all layered on top of the clean cracker malt. The pine becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, average carbonation, and a mineral earth bitter finish. Easy drinking Pale. Thanks for this one Brandon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz single can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Hazy light orange appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pale malts, light bead, floral notes, light spice and light tropical fruits. Similar flavor, moderately hoppy and lightly zesty with light malt sweetness. Smooth and easy to drink, solid APA.

Serving: 12 oz. can from 5000. Thanks Andre! Deep gold pour with a dense white head. Hoppy nose with light pine notes. The flavor has a touch of cracker, light pine needles, and a dry finish. Nice daily drinker.

Archetypally beautiful and tasty. Exactly the pint i’ve been craving for months, a clean, bright, fresh and powerfully balanced pale ale. Nice citrus and pine in great golden amber package. Impressive first pint from the new Fremont Brewery for me, can’t wait for more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
651 ml. bottle. Bottled 11/17/14. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled off white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is toasted malts, with hints of biscuit, light pine, citrus from the hops, no esters, balanced.....taste is mild toasted malts, bread, light pine, slight citrus notes, no esters, balanced....mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a clean, crisp, easy drinking beer. Unfortunately both the hops and malts are a bit muted, with the hop backbone being especially quiet. This is most probably due to the age of the bottle, but perhaps the hop selection. American Pale Ales are supposed to be hop dominated, and this one is not. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Mile High. The body on this is a light amber with some hop haze and a really tall, explosive, rocky white head. The aroma is grassy with supporting notes of orange and lime. Palate is fizzy and has a reasonable, sugary malt body. It’s very appropriate for the style. Hops are the first thing noticed in the flavor with hints at lawn clippings, lemon and orange. Finish is bittersweet and just a touch metallic. This is not a bad pale ale by any stretch, but it’s my least favorite Fremont beer so far. It seems like they have a really strong catalog.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from the in-laws at Xmas. Sort of forgot about this, otherwise I would have cracked it a month ago… not that it matters once I see the date stamped on the neck… bottled 01/14/13. It’s 25 months old! Pops with plenty of carb, pours a clear copper color and is topped with a thick finger of creamy beige head. Tons of sheet lacing. The nose is lively with floral and pine, a tiny bit of grass. Mostly floral hops in the taste with minimal grassy notes. The malt presence is sturdy, but it doesn’t overshadow the hops. Rating is based on the taste today, wow this has aged gracefully, but I’ll look for this fresh…
