look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

The look and feel are ok for style. The nose is grassy, followed by a wet grain and muted lemon leaf smell. Flavor has grass, wet grass, and earthy grain. If you look for it, you might find a hint, mind you a hint, of lemon.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16oz canned 3/12/20, opened 4/23/20.
2 finger white head with a portion rising over the rim of the glass. Very good head retention. Pours an initial clear golden IPA, the haze comes with the last 1/4 of the can...it eventually mixes well. Thick lacing on all sides.
Orange, subtle dank weeds and pine with a lightly bready malt backing. Hint of creamsicle in the nose.
Overall ho-hum aroma.
Moderate citrus and some mango flavor...not much to report here.
Medium plus body, soft mouthfeel. Light pop of bitterness and then a medium length finish with soft citrus hop and lightly bready malt flavors.
Good.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz can poured in to a nonic glass. Pkgd 03/12/20

Look- Hazy golden amber color. Large off-white head that recedes fairly quickly to a thin cap of foam, solid lacing. Moderate carbonation streams visible.

Smell- Peach/nectarine, tropical fruit (pineapple, papaya and mango), melon, citrus (orange/tangerine, grapefruit and lemon), bready malt, resinous pine, light white pepper and other floral/spicy hop notes.

Taste- Similar to the aroma, tangy and juicy. Nectarine, tropical fruit, citrus and melon, light pine, lingering slightly bitter finish . Fairly well balanced.

Feel- Medium bodied, dry and crisp. Moderate carbonation on the tongue.

O- A very solid IPA, on the cheaper end of the spectrum too. Definitely worth checking out.

4.84/5  rDev +18.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

L: A nice pale pineapple spritzer in color and a two finger dense ivory froth with decent retention and nice patterns of lace on the glass. A true hazy before they murked out.

S: Grapefruits! And I'm not just sayin it like I feel so many do on BA unjustifiably. A touch of something floral, and the rest is lemon meringue pie. Wow.

T: The best IPA I've had from Fremont since they opened shop. I haven't had such a well ballanced quencher like this in quite awhile. Cannot fathom the low review preceeding me. Follows the nose and exhibits true expertise.

F: The weight is on the lighter end and an absolute perfectionate match for the flavor of this beer.

O: One of the best - I would drink this year round! Get a fresh can if you can.

16 oz can from Hops and Bottles. Light hazy pour, soft bubbly head. Light fruity, hoppy aroma. Muted. Taste is also subdued, fruity juicy flavors, more citrusy than tropical, but would make an excellent fruit punch. Not in- your- face, but very mellow.

Less than a month on this can.

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach, melon, apricot), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, peach, melon, apricot), pretty nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad to see this series showing up again. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake!

One week old can. You don't need me to tell you this looks hazy. It's a honeycomb yellow and as pretty as they pour.

Complex nose with resiny, floral and herbal notes, shortbread, burnt sugar, tropical and citrus fruits.

The taste follows, all flavors well-balanced, hops resiny fresh and forward, enough to sear your throat while also being pillowy somehow.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Dated 3/12/20. Bought it at the brewery last night.

Pours hazy golden with a medium sized head and plenty of carbonation. Smell is tropical fruity and bright.

Taste is super resinous up front, fruitiness takes a back seat (may be a result of extreme freshness). Pine, lemon pith.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, nice beer.
