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.

Pours a hazy orange color, with a creamy colored foamy head that laces well. It's opaque, definitely bottle conditioned.

The aroma is sweet citrus fruits, splashes of floral hoppiness and a bit of bready malts. Not overly pungent, but it's quite pleasant.

The taste has a nice strong bitter bite to it at first, moving then to a citrus and grapefruit note, some flowery notes and a spicy, woody note. I'll bet that last taste sensation can be thanks to the Louisville Sluggers.

Nice crisp carbonation, lighter in body, rather refreshing.

Overall, it's a rather splendid little IPA. Doesn't hurt as well that it's a good cause.
