mcberko (16005) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap at Bottleworks, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very skunky, with loads of herbal, pot-like hops and some doughy malt. Flavour is very fresh, full of skunky, herbal hops, some pot, and a bit of doughy malt to back without really influencing the flavour. Well-crafted and highly drinkable. Surprised me that this is classified as an APA, not IPA.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber with a foamy beige head. Lush floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is orange/apricot. Which moves on to show some floral. Marvelously fresh and fruity. Very nice.

Ratman197 (14042) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bomber poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of bread, lemon, pine and light grassiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, lemon, light earthiness, light grassiness and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Dogbrick (12341) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting VI on 10/03/2014. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of earthy hops, grapefruit and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Very tasty and drinkable IPA without palate assault. Thanks for hooking me up Brad. Lemon-orange treat. Very pleasant aroma, taste, appearance, all around.

deyholla (10775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle thanks to Scott. Pours a near clear orangish amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grape fruit with some passion fruit and light grain. Flavor starts with light pine with sweet grains but has a good amount of passionfruit.

Rating #6600. 651mL from Pear in Pike Place Market. Pours a clear, lighter orange with mega rocky, beautiful buttercream toppings. Thick lacing all over the globe. Nose is holy monkey dank, juicy passionfruit and mango style hops. Taste showcases Fremonts unequaled ability to create a soft, composed malt backbone that balances the soft hop bitterness without there being any stickiness, abrasiveness, thick nut skin tannic bite, heavy nut oil fat density that bloats the stomach. In that sense, this deserves an easy 5 for palate as do at least three other Fremont beers, which is quite the rarity to be dished out by me. The malt extraction, softness, and balanced malt backbone shows some serious brewing knowledge that restores my faith in humanity. Each gulp of this beer, oh lord, its good. Honestly, this reminds me of my very first swig of Ballast Point Sculpin where I nearly dropped to the floor it was so good. I will dream of this beer.

phaleslu (9778) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2016
12 oz. can from Prufrockstar - thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy gold with an injured or more of foamy barely off-white head that laces the glass while settling into a rocky, patchy film and ring. Fresh Citra and Simcoe, indeed. Fresh citrus and tropical fruits, pine, herbs, wildflowers, grass, and a light bready malt backbone. Well-balanced, with a light body, moderate carbonation, and smooth mouthfeel that has doesnt overpower with bitterness or juiciness or maltiness. Drinks so nice. Wow, impressive stuff.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Lots of Fremont in PDX lately- which is great. Pours a clear orange color with a large white head. A big fruity and meaty hop nose. Soft oranges and citrus, tangerine, very juicy core that shines through, almost dare a say, East Coast IPA like. Toasted malt base. Very nice and clean. Super drinkable.
