4.45/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
From a fresh growler into a tulip. Pours a clear coppery orange w/ a big dense head, gravity-defying lacing clings to the side of the glass. Moderate carbonation.
Aroma is mostly citrus and juicy hops, some pine notes. Smells great: clean, fresh, and sticky.
Taste is tropical juicy goodness. Primarily grapefruit, orange, and pineapple, lots of sticky hop resin. A little sweet with a nice sharp bitter finish. Plenty of neutral pale malt holds it all together. 8.5% booze well hidden.
Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, but not oily. Medium bodied, carries some weight without being overbearing. Thirst quenching and very, very drinkable. Addictive.
Overall a very enjoyable DIPA, was difficult not to just gulp it down. Well done Fremont.
Serving type: growler

Enjoyed on tap at the Fremont UBG.
A: Bright orange with a slight haze and frothy head that leaves nice lacing.
S: Tons of citrus hops. Tropical fruits and orange galore.
T: Big hop profile with pineapple, melon, and citrus fruit prominent. Finishes with a sharp hop bite. Moderate to high bitterness and some pale malt backing to try for some balance.
M: Moderate to heavy for the style and moderate carbonation. Some alcohol is noticeable.
O: If you're attracted to high IBU beers with citrus hop profiles, give this one a shot.
Serving type: on-tap
