I guess Fremont started putting "Bottled on" date now on their bottles. Kudos to Fremont!

This bottle says "Bottled on: 05/06/13"... so about 2 weeks old. Sweet!

A: Light orange slightly hazy body with 2 finger foam. Good lacing.

S: Smells like your typical Fremont APA. Very similar to SBW Organic Pale, Summer Ale, and Select 77. Amarillo hops (I am guessing), Sweet malt, grain. I don't really pick up much of the oak in the nose.

T: Bright hops to start, orange, tangine, citrus, and strong bitterness towards the middle and end (not piney bitterness - must be the oak), maybe some honey to balance it off. Quite tasty. I can also taste some graininess that is very typical of Fremont PA or APA.

M: Quite smooth and thick but well carbed.

O: Solid brew. I think the oak is contributing quite heavily to the bitterness (I don't think it's the hops that is causing it in this brew). A tad bit on the sweeter side, given 6.2% ABV.
