4.29/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a 22 oz bomber with no discernible dating, but the nice thing about hop harvest/fresh hop beers is that you have a pretty good idea of how fresh they are so long as you know the year. Poured into a 50 cL glass stein with a textured exterior.

Appearance - A brassy golden color with amber highlights, but the body is shadowed by the massive blanketing two finger head the color of creamy off-white. The retention is outstanding, with the foam eventually dissipating to a still rather generous layer of creamy froth and larger bubbles. Leaves a sticky but patchy net of lace as the beer is consumed.

Smell - Citrus complexity, with tangelo, starfruit, clementine as well as some fainter notes of mango and nectarine. It's like a fruit candle, but with none of the cloying elements that often come with scented candles. A lightly faint biscuit element gives a little counterbalance. On the back end of the aroma is a light bit of herbal characteristic, like basil and thyme.

Taste - The taste of this beer is incredibly lush and refreshing, with light grain, like water crackers to provide a vessel on which to transport the cornucopia of hop flavor. There's only one other APA that has hit me like this, with definite IPA-like characteristics while maintaining it's identity due to a gentle but firm pale malt base. Orange blossom, tangerine, and lemon zest all contribute to the lovely hop bouquet.

Mouthfeel - Light and juicy, easy to drink and smooth. Mostly dry finish with some fruitiness that hints at sweetness. Each finished drink makes me want to take the next swig.

Overall, a fantastic take on the APA style that definitely skirts that line between Pale Ale and IPA. There's another well-known (and highly popular--with good reason) beer in the same style that I won't name, but that you can probably deduct, and I would say this beer is every bit as tasty in many ways. Both are hard to get for me, but this one is easier, so I might be making an annual tradition out of buying some of these each hop harvest. I also love the fact that some of the sales go to support the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy.

4.51/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a dark orange body. Mostly translucent with a bit of cloudiness. Yields a thick, dense, pillowy, bright white head that hangs around seemingly forever. Leaves incredible lacing. It doesn't get much better than this from an appearance standpoint.

S: Citra hops jump out of the bottle before even poured. Mango and tangerine dance around in the glass, backed with some pine and resinous hops.

T: Sweet exotic fruits dominate the upfront taste, which quickly transforms into a bitter, piney hop explosion. The finish is crisp and clean with lingering resin and tangerines.

M: Medium body. Crisp. Clean. Refreshing. Moderately high carbonation. Sticky and Prickly dryness.

O: This came to my doorstep with a ton of hype from a buddy that is local to Fremont, so I must admit that I was very excited going into this one. Boy, did this one deliver and actually exceeded the hype train that he was driving. A ton of juicy sweet character, but is not short on hop notes and complexity either. I wish I had more than just the two bottles. Big thanks Anthony!

L: Bright gold with a touch of haze and moderate carbonation streaming to the top. Big fluffy white head with excellent lacing on the sides of the glass.

A: Huge and fresh pine resin, mango, pineapple, and some clean grassiness. Crackery malt with a touch of candy sweetness and neutral yeast character.

T/M: Nice clean bitterness upfront, moves into big grassy, piney/citrus hops with some mango and pineapple to boot. Hop flavors blend with some light biscuit malt notes and some candylike character as well. Beer finishes bitter and dry, with lingering hop flavors.

Overall, one of the best American Pale Ales I have ever had, if not the best. The hop flavor and aroma is super juicy and resiny, the malt balances perfectly, and the whole package together is nothing short of world-class. I wish I could have swung another bottle, but I am glad to have tried one.

Huge thanks to mfavoino for sending this out my way. Thanks Matt! 22 oz. bottle served Deschutes tulip.

A: Pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head forming on the pour. The head has great retention and recedes slowly leaving behind sticky and soapy looking spot of lace.

S: A juicy bouquet of tropical fruits. Mango, papaya and green melon make a strong presence up front. There is some light grass and pale malts towards the back end that really round out the nose.

T: Most malty than the nose suggests. A pale malt sweetness is up front with a nice mix of grassy hops and just a kiss of tropical fruits. There is a light bitter hop finish as well.

M: Light bodied with a slight stick to the mouthfeel. Nice medium high carbonation makes this guy easily drinkable as well.

O: A very delicious beer. As I've noticed with a few of the Fremont beers I've had the taste doesn't quite live up to the nose. Still a highly drinkable and balanced beer that I'd have again.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at AndrewK’s tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruits. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell and tasty flavor.

Pours a nice, clear orange color with a one finger head on top, nice retention and lacing all around.

S: Wow, amazingly fruity. Tons of oranges and grapefruit, very juicy. Not much in terms of malt in the aroma. Extremely inviting.

T: More citrus fruit up front, orange, grapefruit, a little pineapple and pine on the finish. Slightly sweet malt mixed in as well, but the fresh hops dominate the flavor profile.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Easy drinking, slightly bitter finish.

O: Extremely impressed, a very good APA, right up there with the best of them. If only it was made year round!

Big thanks to my in-laws for thinking of me when they saw this "fresh hop" beer in their supermarket and surprising me with two bottles!! They have some fine taste in beer picking this one.

Appearance. Pours a fairly clear gold-amber with a half-finger of white head.

Smell. Fresh oranges and grapefruit rinds, a little toasted light grains and some sweet mango. Yum!!

Taste. Pineapple, oranges, grapefruit rinds, mango and some toasted caramel malts.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with medium, very smooth carbonation.

Overall. Just an awesome fresh-hop pale with lots of tropical and citrus fruits. Loved it.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug

Pours bright golden orange with a big head that fades fairly quickly, leaving some medium lacing and a slightly clumpy film. Medium-low amount of slow carbonation snaking its way up to the surface. Smell is a very attractive but somewhat mild hop profile with some honeysuckle sweetness in it.

Taste is fairly sweet, again nice hop profile but mild (I guess this is a pale ale, not an IPA). More floral sweetness. Nice but relaxed beer.

Mouthfeel is light and airy. Overall, this is a good, laid back beer.

Huge thanks to ArchEnemyBrew for trading this beer to me! Thanks Hollis!

Poured into sinfter glass.

Appearance: Golden yellow bodied beer with small white head. Lacing clings everywhere little better than spotty lace.

Smell: Big fresh juicy hop notes. I am getting peach notes from the hops! Thats a first. Lots of citris flavors too. A touch of wet pine needles.

Taste: Just like the nose. Big, juicy, and fresh hops flavors that are well balanced very well. Nothing out competes the other in the beers hop flavor profile. Citrisy, maybe a hint of peaches, grass, pine, and grapefruit. A hint of cracker like malts.

Mouthfeel: on the high end of a light bodied beer. Moderate carbonation. Juicy hops. Such a drinkable APA.

Overall: Fremont makes superb hoppy beers. This beer will hang with any of the giants in its respective beer style!

translucent golden orange with a short white head. Splotchy lacing.

Stinky hops. Brian says peaches and I can get down with that.

Bright citurs. Hops dominate malt. Clean finish. Very bitter on the tail end. Omnom.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Smooth.

Wanna just gulp this one down. Upper echelon of pale ales for sure. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT, ArchEnemyBrew!

Bomber enjoyed on 10/11/12.

A: Slightly hazy orange with a generous head that receded quickly. Spotty lacing.

S: Wow, tons of citrus aromas. Orange, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Hops are huge and remind me of ZD (yeah, I said it...most be the citra). Fresh.

T: Initially taste lots of grapefruit, orange, and some more herbal/resin hop flavors. Sweet. Malt isn't center stage, yet the beer is still not one dimensional. Finishes clean and smooth with a soft hop bitterness.

M: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Refreshing.

O: Fremont kills it again. Really delicious, refreshing, and one of my favorite hoppy beers. I need to buy more before it's all gone.

From 22oz bomber to pint glass

A: Lightly hued copper-tan in appearance, clear, with a small sudsy head and small patches of lacing.

S: Fruity bouquet but more crisp than sweet. Distinct tones of apple juice and grapefruit rind bounce off a cracker-y backdrop. A bit a of vinous, grassy undertone lingers throughout

T: Fruit-forward again, but more complex and layered than the nose. Orange pith, apple and grapefruit rub up against caramelly malts and a bready complexion. Smooth and quaffable throughout, finishes quickly with an even balance of sharp and sweet.

M: Chewy and satisfying, oily slick. I can't think of an APA that works itself into the crevices of your palate as this one does.

This is easily the best tasting APA I've had, but that's probably because it tastes more like an IPA than a Pale. The only thing that's not IPA-like is the hops don't come across very bitter or piny. But that's a small distinction, this is pretty much an IPA. Still, a fine beverage, reminds me of RR's Row 2/HIll 56, flavorful and drinkable.

A: Poured a transparent light orange with a nice white cap presenting some bubbles, light lacing. Looks appealing. Pretty good head retnetion here.

S: Loads of fresh fruits here; everything from pineapple to grape fruit, orange peel but I really received a bit of pine and spruce tips

T: Big citrus upfront with some spruce and pine needles following. There is a light caramel presence. The finish is a little slick with a subtle hop bite, light, very light booze sting, refreshing citrus and fruits round it off

M: Light to medium bodied, well carbonated, citrus really sits on the palate creating an enjoyable mouthfeel

O: Mighty damn fine!

Another from the hated 22oz format. Would have loved to have been able to buy a sixer of cans of this beer, too bad Fremont doesn't can. Oh, wait....

Poured into 16oz nonic. Poured a lightly hazy copper-orange color with 3/4 of an inch of off-white head that had good retention and very good lacing.

The aroma was most certainly very hop forward. From the second than the cap was popped, big doses of citrus, pine and additional floral tones filled the room. There was also a bit of a weed scent, but no real malt profile(I know, I know, it's supposed to be a hop-bomb. I just prefer some grain for the flowers to cling to). On the tongue the story was pretty much the same, but I was happy with the presence of just enough grain to give all those hops a nice counter-point.

The body was, somewhat surprisingly, nicely full without being heavy or sticky. The beer had a nicely dry finish that almost left you thirsty for more. Drinkability was very good, if only I could have had 2 12oz containers, instead of being stuck with 22. I would have even had the option of opening a third one (and would have). Overall, a very, very good beer. A must try if you're a hop head. Worth setting up a trade for, and worth trading a whale. If only the format wasn't so terrible.

Stopped into Full Throttle Bottles just to pick this up on my way back from Seattle.

Poured into a standard pint glass from a bomber. Stunningly clear and bright. Gold in color with a brilliant white head.

Smell of tropical fruits, grapefruit tiny bit of dank exactly what I expect from a Citra and Simcoe beer. Smell is huge! No skill required at picking out the aromas.

Taste is exactly like the nose with a delicate balance of sweet malts.

Mouthfeel is just shy of crisp.

Overall, this is perfect. Not a single bad thing to say about this beer. Fremont has absolutely been nailing it lately and this shows their talent. To take fresh hops within 24 hours of being picked and turn out a beer this perfect takes skill.

Well done Fremont!

M: Good amount of carbonation, medium body.

O: Nice. Not top 100 nice, but it's really quite good. Quite a deal also at $3.99 a bomber - wish they can this and make it avaiable all year around.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin fine white head and light lacing. Interesting aroma of stone fruits, citrus hops and sweet malt, intense apricot/peach fruit. Flavor is citrus hops and apricot melding into sweet malt with a citrus and pine hop finish. Very pleasant. Not that hop forward, but the hops assert themselves nicely in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very nice and somewhat different IPA.

Big thanks go out to draheim for this wet hop masterpiece. Wanted to share it but no one is around, needs to go today, guess it's all mine.

It pours a finely clouded golden, topped by four fingers of thick lather. Bas relief mountains of lace cling to the glass gravity-defyingly. Ah, the beauty of unfiltered and hoppy ale.

Mmm, a perfume of neutral sweet carrying aromas of sweet grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, even hints of fresh flowers and bitter herbs. Wish I had perfume of this aroma, I would encourage my wife to wear it, though probably we would end up with a brood of children nine months apart in ages.

The taste doesn't disappoint. All the flavors of the aroma come alive on the palate, aided by a hint of yeasty tart, and a balance that is staggeringly fine. It ends with a light, very clean bitterness drying the sip. It isn't a piney bitter, nor a bitter herb flavor, just a pleasant sort of clingy, resiny...what? Bitter floral is the only way I can describe it. Wonderfully delicious beer, a masterpiece of fresh hops!

Very light in the mouth with medium carb. and clean finish that lasts and lasts. Viscous and full flavored, it somehow also is superbly easy drinking.

The finest wet hop I've had this year. Better than Wet and Founders Harvest, my current favorites. Wish I could drink this all year, or even get another bottle for that matter. Buy this if you see it you won't be disappointed.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This is actually a Pale Ale not an IPA.

A: Nice pale orange color with a very slight haze. One finger, real rocky, off white head with awesome retention and very nice lacing.

S: Great citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit mainly but not the sour grapefruit smell. Apricots, mango, and some tangerine are also present. Love the smell of Citra hops. A very light caramel malt peeks through.

T: Caramel upfront. Then a blend of hops reminiscent of Zombie Dust. Resiny, citrus, earthy, pine, and finishing with nice floral notes. A touch of bitterness. Flavors just shining through.

M: Medium body. Medium high carbonation. Oily. Good dryness.

O: Another amazing beer from Fremont. Citra hops are amazing. Definitely need to get some Kern River Citra! I can only imagine what that is like.

On tap at Fremont Brewing in Seattle, WA. October 18th, 2011.

A: The beer pours a pale orange color with a very minimal haze. There is a one-finger head of off white foam that sticks around. The lacing is similar and does not dissipate.

S: This has a fantastic citrus hop aroma with hints of grapefruit, apricot nectar and mango. There is a hint of caramel malt, but the Citra hops in this beer are wonderfully fragrant and really dominate here.

T: The initial taste is one of caramel malt, but it quickly melds into a strong bitter hop note. Touches of pine, citrus, lemongrass are present.

M: The beer has a medium body with average carbonation. The mouth feel is dry yet oily.

O: Fremont knocked it out of the park with this one. They're not allowing growler fills of this at the brewery, so I'll need to track down some bombers.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a golden hue. There is a finger of off white head and decent retention.

Smell: Some bready malt but the star here is the citrus peel hops. There are some fruity apricot like notes as well.

Taste: Bitter citrus peel hops hit the tongue pretty hard, but there is plenty of malt to back them up. The apricot notes from the smell are present. The finish is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with mild, tingly carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. I hadn't heard of it before, but it was a great fresh hop IPA.

It's that time of year just a few hours from the bulk of U.S. hop farming. Get 'em while they're fresh.

Smells very folral and grassy with a nice punch of hop oil. And there's a caramel malt backbone too. As it warmed I got grapefruit citrus hops.

Gold colored and kind of hazy with a decent layer of white foam head.

First sip gives me lots of citrus hop flavor and high bitterness. More sips give me a nice sweet malt base with honey and cheerios and some fruity yeast things.

Medium bodied and a nice soft carbonation level (growler effect?)

It's a very nice balanced Pale ale at 6% it's not quite an IPA but a little bigger than your standard pale.

22oz bottle (bottled 10/6/2011) poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing orange with a creamy white head.

Aroma is pure grapefruit. Wow. 120 pounds of fresh organic Citra & Simcoe hops per batch, 24 hours from harvest to kettle.

Taste follows nose. Nothing but bright citrus hops and clean pale malt. Really nice crisp bitter finish. Absolutely drinkable, thirst-quenching, addictive. I could drink one of these every single day.

Once again, Fremont shows that it's a force to be reckoned with. Just outstanding.
