This is my favorite IPA in Seattle currently, and probably my favorite IPA period. If you want to categorize it, it's closest to the Southern California IPA style (think Blind Pig) rather than "Northwest style" (maltier). I'm very excited they're canning it now. You can get it at Whole Foods or the brewery, and a couple other grocery stores (hope they distribute more though!).

12oz can poured in pint glass.

A: golden color with great clarity but some floating yeast particulates. (not filtered?)

S: Strong aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops. Seriously this beer has a stronger hop aroma than some fresh hopped beers I've tried. The citrus + grapefruit combination is my favorite in an IPA.

T: Abundant citrus and grapefruit hop flavor up front. Some piney hop flavors follow. High bitterness (about average bitterness for an IPA). Not much malt flavor (how I like it). A touch grassy in the finish.

M: light bodied with a dry finish and medium-high carbonation.

O: A supremely drinkable beer. Well rounded and amazingly fresh hop flavors and aroma. Perhaps even more importantly, they're consistent. I've had Fremont IPA off-and-on about 6 months now, and it's always consistent.

My mouth still saddened by the too popular seattle brewed cream ale from down the road, I saddled up to the bar at the new-blue Fremont brewery. The nose off this pale IPA is full of lowers and citrus, Amarillo hops give their salutation. The beer slide down perfectly, strong and powerful with a fast finish.

Is this the best pacific northwest IPA? no. Is it the best one from a Seattle brewery? Quite possibly. It's a pure delight, a beer to remember, a beer to emulate.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewery.
Very nice golden appearance. Decent head retention. Nice lace.
Taste is, well, like what an IPA should be. Citrus, a bit flowery and mellow. A very good session beer that is totally drinkable, especially if your preference is hop forward beers that don't destroy the palate.

Serving type: on-tap

This is in my top 5 ipas. Has great carbonation, clarity, honey malt taste but all those stand well below the chinook hops in this beer. It is a true NW IPA not a malty imposter. Honey malt shines in this one but the hop aroma and more so the taste make this absolutely delicious.

P: Bomber brown bottle, poured into a tulip glass.

A: Semi-cloudy, dark golden, brassy hue…HUGE white head with...what's that? Fresh hops floating around in the head!!!Also, leaves behind some fluffy rings of lacing.

S: Mint, marmalade, faint caramel, ripe pear, Orange citrus, lemon juice, light florals and grass.

T: Very smooth, deep crispness, hop bitterness… Upfront there is pineapple… lemon juice followed by leafy, dried grass, lightly toasted bread, clean caramel notes mid-palate. Finishes with pine and grassy floral…drying finishes…

M: On the fuller side of medium bodied, juicy, crisp and bitter.

O: Very clean, Very drinkable. SOOO FRESH (the floating hops in the head illustrate how fresh this beer is & tastes)!! Just an outstanding American IPA all around… pretty much nailed it with this one!!!

4.33/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: The beer presents a clear amber liquid capped by a modest head that still leaves a copious amount of lace

Smell: A touch of the biscuit in the background with gobs of tropical fruit dominating; a touch vinous

Taste: As it smells, the tropical fruit flavors dominate, with papaya, pineapple and tangering; a slightly vinous character arrives, after the swallow, but the overall flavor profile is tropical and citrusy with just a hint of the malts

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Love the hop profile here, with all of the tropical flavors; rather unique and tasty

Serving type: on-tap

12oz can. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with an inch of thick, frothy head. Tons of sticky lacing. Great nose of tropical fruits; pineapple, mango, papaya and some citrus hops. Taste is more of that great tropical fruit flavor. Bitter orange peel finish. Nice amount of hops throughout. Drinkable and delicious. Medium bodied. This one smelled great and did not disappoint. Overall, I want more of this beer for sure.
