Citrus hop flavor. Refreshing beer.

A lovely, easy-drinking, everyday pale, and the flagship from my favorite brewery. It is evident a lot of care and refinement went into this one, as virtually all the impurities have been swept away. The result is just a classic, near-perfectly balanced APA, with a NW emphasis--the resinous pine notes holding court in the hop profile. By my lights, it's an underrated brew in Fremont's magnificent oeuvre.

Bottle from Winco. Not too happy for an APA, lager comes to mind. Grain forward, hazy medium golden body, soft foamy head. Gentle hops on the aroma, malt bill takes over for taste. Medium weight, chewy body. Tasty, drinkable, and not hoppy at all.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color; a bubble show produces two fingers of foam; sheets of lacing linger

Smell: Biscuity and grassy, with an herbal aspect

Taste: A biscuity base is a prelude to the the grassy hop bill with a citrusy element that builds through the middle; pineapple in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More of an old school APA that I thought might be more citrusy given the "C" hop bill; decent, but not something to chase down

This is one of my favorote pale ales. Bought a six pack of cans and am enjoying it. Ive had it in a bomber before but my local pub only had the cans. Smooth and light with a crisp hop flavor introduction, smoothing out quick. This and sierra nevadas pale ale are my go to for the style (: could see putting back a lot of these on a spring hike in the olympics (:

From a can, into a pint glass: the aroma of fresh hops hits you first, even at a distance. Yellow-gold color, slightly hazy. The hops are most striking initially, and at first I'm thinking its an IPA but then the toastiness takes over. Perfectly done pale ale.
