Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at mhksuccess' tasting.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with some herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

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

Finally, the last of Gil's IPAs.

A: The beer pours golden in color with a white head.

S: Wow, moderately hoppy. Amazing. That's not to say this beer is without the seemingly necessary pounds of caramel, toffee, and bread. A bit of citrus peel and pine are the hop aromas.

T: Toffee and brown sugar with just a little bit of hop flavor. There is a touch of grass and pine, only a moderate bitterness. The flavor is not as good as the aroma, which was only barely acceptable.

M: Medium bodied with just a medium carbonation.

O: This one gave me some false hope, but it was another failure.

Purchased from Malt and Vine.Poured into an imperial nonic a clear medium golden with a nice 1/2 finger white head that left two broken rings of lace as it settled.A mix of spicy and citic hops with a sweetish biscuit malt base,I pick up a litle hard water I think as well.Well balanced with a citrusy hop profile,not bitter in any kinda way,it has a little tropical fruitiness to it,the caramel biscuit malt base holds true to the finish.A solid American IPA,big hops but well balanced,again very solid.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly balanced overall. I get some nice papaya and other tropical fruit notes, with some bread and biscuit malt thrown in as well. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of papaya, mango and other fruit notes, with the bread and biscuit malt keeping the bitterness fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a lovely shade of amber in the wine tumbler. Nice bubbles and lacing. Substantial body but crisp and tangy. A touch of mango and dried pineapple along with the bitter pine. Inviting sudsy mouthfeel.

A honey-flavored resiny hop flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. A mellow hoppy quaff that provides a nice balance of malt and hops, just enough sweetness and that crisp mouthfeel. The aftertaste does get rather bitter, but there's another sip with the sweet malt to start. Pleasant fruitiness seems to intensify with the sipping.

Brewer says this is made with Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo hops. One of the better Northwest IPAs I've had this year. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

12 oz can, thanks Rich.

Pours a hazed, yet clear golden copper with a dense off white head that fades to a thin layer and plenty of lace. Nose of orange, lemon, biscuit, and grass. Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, a leafy and chalky finish. Leafy hops in flavor with a little citrus sweetness, but not much bitterness

A: Poured a golden yellow color with good carbonation and a nice white head, good bubbles and lacing

T: Taste is a burst of floral,grassy and orange peel notes, hint of honey with a nice bitterness which is prominent but not overdone, light booze, sting with some light citrus on the end. Not oily but just right.

M: Mouthfeel is lighter to medium body, tasty, well carbonated.

O: Good IPA

The beer is transparent and golden hued with a half inch of sticky, white head. The aroma brings hops, pine, resin. Clean and refreshing. Smooth on the palate, despite a healthy amount of hop biterness. Hop forward, but certainly not a hop bomb. Nicely balanced, with some bready malts in a supporting role. Light bodied with minimal alcohol presence and appropriate carbonation. Overall, this was solid.

On tap at pub 124 in Walla Walla today.

The beer pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, this beer is quite attractive, showcasing considerable orange citrus, pine and black pepper. This beer smells great, and is nearly as good on the palate. There is considerable orange citrus on the palate, but the beer also has a long, bitter finish that is very nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but the moderate orange sweetness is nicely countered by the wash of bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, though there's a hint of heat from alcohol in the finish. Otherwise, this is a very attractive, very easy to enjoy IPA from Fremont Brewing.

I would order this beer again in a heart beat.

Had on tap at Revel. Review from notes.

A: Pours a copper/amber color with a one finger beige head on top, pretty thick with nice retention. Some foamy lacing forms on the glass.

S: Nice citrus aroma, grapefruit, orange rind, and a bit of pine. There is a bit of sweet malt and caramel on the back end.

T: A very nice IPA, more tropical/citrus fruits, chiefly grapefruit, with orange, and orange zest. A bit of light caramel and grainy malt.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A pretty good IPA, easy enough to get too!

Both a tangerine and orange color as well as aroma coming out of this one.

Everything I was really looking for, had the big citrus presence, pine to a lesser degree, caramel not over the top (nothing was), relatively balanced for the style and region, bitterness in check. Nothing was mindblowing, nothing was just average though, file this under a really good brew by a local brewery. Had it at Hopfest!, would love to check it out again.

IBUs not grossly inflated for number ticking, alcohol well in check, I hope to see this in a bottle someday. Recommended.

Medium to big off white head slowly recedes leaving a biscuity aftermath above a clear copper caramel colored beer.

Light citrus and grassy style hops coming through above all else in the aroma which also has a bit of sweeter caramel malts with a hint of yeast sneaking in.

A dry tasting beer with light sweet malts being the backdrop for the grassy and light citrus hops taste that is in the forefront with each drink of this beer.

A drying aftertaste that bring just a bit of the tastes of this beer along for the ride with this medium bodied beer.

A little light on the tastes but generally not a bad glass of beer.

From a paper review last week .... Poured into my Cigar City snifter... nice white head.... good retention and lacing.... the brew is orange with a slight haze.

Nose shows sorta malt muted citrus and floral hop notes.... there is plenty of hop presence, but it is stunted by a fair amount of pale and toasty malt.

Bitterness shows up front and doesn't let go until long after the sip... bitter throughout. a decent floral/citrus hoppiness comes out toward the finish but is pummeled by the bitterness...

Body and carbonation are about perfect.... I doubt I would buy this one again unless I can guarantee it is fresh.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clear deep yellow with only a thin cap of white head that dissipated immediately and left no lacing.

A bold pine hop aroma is the first thing across the nose, followed by some floral notes. The flavor is similar with a hit of grapefruit on the finish. The finish is otherwise very dry.

The body is on the thin side, even for a NW IPA. This beer is very drinkable, it slides down the throat very easy for the style.
Overall, a very nice, drinkable version of the style that's worth your time if you see it.
