Draft. Okay. Very nice aroma, but not sure I like it much. Astringent and bitter. ACHops (1635) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2015
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. WABeerFiend (426) - - JAN 20, 2015
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 (3682) - 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 (7610) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014

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.
Draught at Bottleworks, SeattleSammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
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.. luttonm (6737) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Draft at Brouwer’s. slightly hazed orange. white head, well balanced. dry malt and dry amber. good hop profile. mild, solid. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours light hazy yellow, minimal head.
Smell light grapefruit hoppyness, much like a hoppy pale
Taste citrus and tropical fruit, melon, sweet, bitter finish
Really good sessionable ipa pushkinwow (2895) - Ottawa, 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.
