Fremont Interurban IPA is a solid beer. The color is a little more amber than a golden. It is carbonated at just the right level to give it a good mouthfeel and leaves a pretty thick head when poured. Not too malty. Not too hoppy. Aroma is a little on the weak side. Hop flavor is mellow. Slightly bitter. Solid IPA.

Big thanks to Matt (mfavoino) for sending this guy my way. Bomber served in a Bell's stemmed tulip.

A: Pours a chilled orange color with some a big foamy head forming on the pour. Great retention. It recedes slowly to a massively thick ring and leaves great, sticky webbing down the whole glass.

S: Nice tropical fruit bursts. Some pineapple and melon. Sweet doughy malts on the back end.

T: Nice pear, apple and mango flavors. There's a little grass in the middle and the finish is cleansing sweetness from some cracker-like malts.

M: Medium to light bodied and a solid carbonation level makes this guy an easy drinker.

O: This was very, very solid and highly drinkable. I was stunned at the price point ($5.99) for this guy and would be frequently buy it if I had access. Great value beer.

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.

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

On-tap at Brouwer's in Seattle. Enjoyed 19 June 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear medium amber, brought with a cap of yellowish foam. Fantastic lacing, bright colors. Nice.

Smells like resiny hops with a pinch of citrus. Nose-tingling floral aromas. I like it.

In the taste, I find the malt base to be a bit under-powered. Sticky, earthy, resiny bitterness. The hop bitterness is lasting, but I find the flavor to be lacking much else.

Mouthfeel is decent. A bit watery, with lower carbonation than I want.

A decent, simple IPA. Smell is the highlight, but the malt base and hop flavors don't measure up to my favorite examples.

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!

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!!!

from notes:

Pours a golden amber with orange tint in glass. 1/2" head with slippery lacing. Head flattens out quickly but sticks around a while. Plenty of bubbles with a light-light haze.

Smells of almost lemony hops. Bright pears with hints of orange maybe nectarine. Blasts of fruity hops here.

Almost a grapey hop taste. Like a grape cigarillo. Aftertaste of thick flavorful wheat. Alcohol flavor a little heavy, seems thicker and heavier than it's 6.2% bottle reads of. Snappy, dry finish. Like with most IPAs, leaves you quickly wanting more.

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.
