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.

650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden orangeish color with a 2 finger head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasing citrusy hops with some faint cereal grains. Taste is citrusy hops with some fruitiness and a nice malty sweetness balancing this out. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is a fine high quality IPA that is highly recommended.

Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Orange and clear. Good fruity taste, mild hops, orange and vanilla notes. Like this, especially for being a pale ale

Oh my god, first rating of this beer. I am the mother-fucking man! Nose is nice and hoppy with hints of citrus and floral hops. Light base malt notes are bready and a bit sweet. Smells almost like Manny’s IMO. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice thin head and good lace. Dry light and quenching with a hint of sweetness and a nice hoppy finish. Notes of orange, light citrus and some floral notes too. Insanely drinkable. Rather nice.

had at Fremont okto fest. This is a nice pale ale. A good hop. A bit fruity, more floral and some good bittering hops. A great surprise to the festival for me.

On draft at the brewery. Golden pour, with a slight haze. Crisp and citrusy, crackers, grapefruit, and some mild caramel. Easy drinking, pretty nice pale ale.

stevoj (5288) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Winco. Not too happy for an APA, lager comes to mind. Grain forward, hazy medium golden body, soft foamy head. Gentle hops on the aroma, malt bill takes over for taste. Medium weight, chewy body. Tasty, drinkable, and not hoppy at all.
