I love how this one combines very floral, aromatic teas with pineapple and bright tropical fruits. The aspirin dry aftertaste cleans it all away, although this one might be too malty sweet for some, it’s my ultimate(when fresh) camping beer

Bottle brought to bottle share from Safeway in Ephrata, WA. Nice to know you can get superb stuff at Safeway! A hit of hops was what was needed after sampling sours, stouts and ciders all evening, and this did not disappoint. Typical big bold NW IIPA, but right on target for palate adjustment.

Another one of the Fremont cans brought around by elrogish. This was the imperial ipa he brought out one camping trip. Pours a mostly light amber to dark yellow color, thin 1/3" white head. Aroma of what felt like simcoe and amarillo.

Taste, this one was a bit more bitter, a bit more alcohol than some of the others we were having. Still good, no off flavors, it just started to get caught up in the bitterness, the caramel, more so than providing lush hop flavors. Some grapefruit from olden days. Good amount of bitter citrus to it along those lines. Toasted pale malts finish dry and astringent.

Good, but I prefer their lower alcohol hoppy beers compared to this one.

Can from ABV.

A mostly clear light orange with a dense, off-white head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is a blend of candied grapefruit, pine, mandarins and some peach juice. Honey and a little caramel are present. The palate opens mildly bitter with a blend of grapefruit peel, candied orange, a mild floral note as well as some pine. This is followed by a mildly caramel-like sweetness. Mildly sweet on the finish with a lingering bitterness and floral flavor, this beer is medium-light in body and moderately carbonated. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden. Solid.

Picked up a 22 oz bottle from the local market. Amber in color, slightly hazy. Thin, white head with streak lacing. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit and citrus with caramel malt. Flavor has similar qualities. Pineapple, tangerine, mango, along with some grapefruit and piney hops bite. The bitterness lingers a bit in the finish, thick mouthfeel. A tasty beer overall & worth checking out.
