Huge thanks to mfavoino for sending this out my way. Thanks Matt! 22 oz. bottle served Deschutes tulip.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head forming on the pour. The head has great retention and recedes slowly leaving behind sticky and soapy looking spot of lace.
S: A juicy bouquet of tropical fruits. Mango, papaya and green melon make a strong presence up front. There is some light grass and pale malts towards the back end that really round out the nose.
T: Most malty than the nose suggests. A pale malt sweetness is up front with a nice mix of grassy hops and just a kiss of tropical fruits. There is a light bitter hop finish as well.
M: Light bodied with a slight stick to the mouthfeel. Nice medium high carbonation makes this guy easily drinkable as well.
O: A very delicious beer. As I’ve noticed with a few of the Fremont beers I’ve had the taste doesn’t quite live up to the nose. Still a highly drinkable and balanced beer that I’d have again.
Serving type: bottle
Can: Poured a light gold color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops notes with nice floral qualities. Taste is a good mix of citrusy notes with light piney undertones and some subtle residual sugar notes and some bitterness noticeable in the aftertaste. Body si about average with good carbonation. Well-made and very drinkable APA. djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2016

Pour is hazy with tons of fine carbonation and thick fluffy head. Soft piney aroma, hints of grapefruit. Taste follows with big citrus tanginess, bitterness follows to a nice finish. Big and juicy. onceblind (10109) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Hazy bright gold with a thick sticky white cap. Bright grassy and orange rind hops on the nose with a certain fluffiness about it, like a NE IPA. Full delicious flavor with a bright citrus rind and grassy tones, a fluffy full pale malt and almost wheaty body, finishing with more leafy fresh beautiful hops. Lovely citrus and fresh hops throughout. GRM (4108) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2016

On tap at Hops & Pie. Hazy, bright, yellow to orange appearance with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of fresh, zesty hops, citrus fruit, cereal and light pine. Similar flavor, adding a fresh, mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a creamy feel. Pretty refreshing and easy drinking overall. phaleslu (10462) - 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 doesn’t overpower with bitterness or juiciness or maltiness. Drinks so nice. Wow, impressive stuff. douglas88 (9513) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Bomber from Whole Foods. Lot’s 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. pushkinwow (2851) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Can from Robert. Hazy but vibrant amber with a creamy white topping that settles to a dense patchy foam. A fairly mixed and musty hop aroma with some resin, grapefruit zest, unripe pineapple, kafir and some underlying malts. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, somewhat astringent and quite bitter on the finish, dries out and leaves a lot of resin and grapefruit. nickd717 (4780) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Draft at Brouwers Cafe in Seattle. Cloudy copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is great, big citrus rind, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple. Nice flavor, touch of sweetness, big hop punch, loads of citrus zest. Medium body, average carbonation. Very good.
