for a 7% abv Citra single hop ipa this brew is surprisingly well balanced and also perfectly malted. Not getting the bitterness referred to in other reviews, rather I'm finding a very well balanced, non-bitter taste profile with the malts providing superb balance. I am lucky to live in Oregon, therefore this Oregon only offering was pretty easy to find. Good (actually excellent) job Fremont!

This is in my top 5 ipas. Has great carbonation, clarity, honey malt taste but all those stand well below the chinook hops in this beer. It is a true NW IPA not a malty imposter. Honey malt shines in this one but the hop aroma and more so the taste make this absolutely delicious.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewery.
Very nice golden appearance. Decent head retention. Nice lace.
Taste is, well, like what an IPA should be. Citrus, a bit flowery and mellow. A very good session beer that is totally drinkable, especially if your preference is hop forward beers that don't destroy the palate.

My mouth still saddened by the too popular seattle brewed cream ale from down the road, I saddled up to the bar at the new-blue Fremont brewery. The nose off this pale IPA is full of lowers and citrus, Amarillo hops give their salutation. The beer slide down perfectly, strong and powerful with a fast finish.

Is this the best pacific northwest IPA? no. Is it the best one from a Seattle brewery? Quite possibly. It's a pure delight, a beer to remember, a beer to emulate.

From a can: slightly hazy, amber color, tenacious dense head of foam. Smells wonderful; loads of citrus and hops. Tastes the same way. Overall a wonderful IPA and one I keep going back to.

P: Bomber brown bottle, poured into a tulip glass.

A: Semi-cloudy, dark golden, brassy hue…HUGE white head with...what's that? Fresh hops floating around in the head!!!Also, leaves behind some fluffy rings of lacing.

S: Mint, marmalade, faint caramel, ripe pear, Orange citrus, lemon juice, light florals and grass.

T: Very smooth, deep crispness, hop bitterness… Upfront there is pineapple… lemon juice followed by leafy, dried grass, lightly toasted bread, clean caramel notes mid-palate. Finishes with pine and grassy floral…drying finishes…

M: On the fuller side of medium bodied, juicy, crisp and bitter.

O: Very clean, Very drinkable. SOOO FRESH (the floating hops in the head illustrate how fresh this beer is & tastes)!! Just an outstanding American IPA all around… pretty much nailed it with this one!!!
