On tap into a Fremont "can" glass @ the UBG. Pours a crystal clear glowing orange w/ a thin white head.

Aroma is big juicy citrus, mostly clean grapefruit and orange.

Taste is dry biscuity pale malt and copious citrusy hops. A nice clean hoppy bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is clean, crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable.

Overall a really tasty, understate pale ale. Love how the Citra hops are featured here.

L: hazy with v. white head and a bit of lacing
S: mild hop and bit of malt
T: nice and hoppy - classic citrus & pine - with a good balance of malty bisquit
F: best part of this beer: FINALLY a full bodied session beer in the American style (as opposed to all those great full bodied UK session beers)
O: one of - if not the - best hoppy session beers I've had.

Poured from a can into a Mac & Jack's pint glass on 05.20.14.

A: 3 finger white, fluffy head, which retains well. See through straw yellow.

S: Red grapefruit, malt, pine.

T: Red grapefruit, sweet malt.

M: Crisp and nicely carbonated. A bit more watery than the regular UniversAle Pale.

O: This is the baby brother of Fremont's flagship UniversAle Pale. It surprisingly doesn't lose much of the flavor despite it being a session beer.

Rating: A

Enjoyed on draft at a little Thai joint in WA. Pours a hazy orange with billowy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Notes of citrus in the nose and rind in the taste, with a slight lemon peel bitterness. This light bodied brew has loads of carbonation and was really good with the curry I had. Cheers!

Clear, light yellow beer with minimal head. Slightly sweet herbal smell but nothing much over the top. Nice hop-forward taste with nice biscuity malt balance on the back end. Super pleasant taste. Crisp, refreshing, a lil' hoppy but not that much. A real nice summer beer.

Appearance : Beautiful peach amber glow with 10% opacity just barely highlighting the edges. Head is fluffy and 3 fingers tall, leaving tons of lace around the pilsner glass.

Smell : Orange pith, grapefruit, with a touch of fresh green onion.

Taste : Very much like a hoppy pilsner to start, with a nice orange/grapefruity bite. Some white raisin as well.

Feel : Carbonated and smooth, just how I like it.

Overall : Another great Seattle-based IPA. Would have again.
