Poured into a Fremont Brewing pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a two finger white head that dissipates in a few minutes to a thick film, leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt, citrus and faintly piney hops, light citrus fruit. Flavor is light biscuit malt, mild citrus hops with a mildly toasty biscuit finish with light grain. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A pleasant, but understated pale ale that seems unusually tame for a beer from Fremont. The mellow flavor makes this a fine accompaniment to food. Nice but underwhelming.

Crisp golden amber, apple juice-y? right? Pillowy slik white head. Sticks around leaving its mark as the drink continues.
Nose is juicy: tropical fruits and floral hops. Some spice, some light malts support it all.
The tongue starts with a mild grassy hop spice. There is a definitive mint leaf somewhere in there that I really like. Not quite... thin, but kind of pastel? Lighter on the flavour, but a decent medium body. Some biscuity malts supporting it all keeping it in shape. Quite drinkable, decent carbonation, leaves a nice little coating.
Decent APA, would be good on a summer afternoon, but not something that's going to blow you away.

Appearance: a light orange with just a little bit of haze to it and a steady stream of bubbling. a finger of an off white head that slowly fades to a lacing on the sides
Smell: hops, both citrus and some pine. the malts are tough to discern
Taste: opens up with citrusy hops. toasted malts take over and mix with piney/spicy hops. ends up with a hint of lemon bread taste. very complex and tasty pale
Mouthfeel: pretty light and very refreshing
Overall: Wow. Thats a great pale ale. one of my favorites. Wish I could get more of these. great taste and refreshing as can be.

12oz can into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper w/ a big sudsy bright white head, moderate carbonation.
Aroma is nice floral and spicy NW hops with a nice clean citrusy edge.
Taste follows nose. Clean pale biscuity malt and bright floral/citrusy hops. Straightforward and very drinkable.
Mouthfeel is balanced and crisp.
Overall a really nice, clean, refreshing APA. Not sure why this isn't considered an IPA, but whatever. I'm also not sure why I don't drink this more often.

Clear yellow in the Pilsner glass. Attractive foamy head. Plenty of spritiness in the mouth. Light flowery aroma and a watery body. Faint crackery malt flavors with more herbal hoppiness. Bitterness strikes suddenly after some sipping. It is slightly resiny and more like oversteeped green tea, though not that bad. A little malty sweetness comes back with a touch of fruitiness.
Overall this is a pretty pale Pale Ale, but it has a nice fragrant light flavor. The bitterness takes over the finish in a less than appealing way. From the 22 oz bottle purchased from The Market at Anacortes.
05-10-2014 Update: From the 12 oz can. I was surprised how delightfully fragrant this is. I would rate it higher this time. This would be the beer to have in handy cans when you want a crisp, aromatic, light beer.

Mistook this for a IPA and it is the first APA I have (knowingly) had since I started rating beers. Taste like a good IPA Light to me. Mic smell right off the bat, has a much better after taste than a below average IPA. Think it would be a great lunch beer if you have to go back to work. A nice brew for a hot Texas day.
