Tap at The Beer Company in San Diego. Ordered because it’s part of their kill the keg promotion after it was passed over during recent brewery tap room visit. Pint glass filled to capacity. Limited head. Golden/copper color. Aroma is pine and floral hoppy. Great lacing. Taste is bright and relatively refreshing. Slight initial sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. Aftertaste is mostly bitter with hops running the show. Nice finish. Decent pale ale.

commonshawn (607) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Tap at the beer company in San Diego. Light copper with bubbly white head. Hoppy nose. A tiny amount of skunkiness but might have been an old keg. Resin but crisp. Decent, maybe a half birthday beer.

NikkTwist (1913) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Hazy orange gold pour with a slim white head that left a nice show of lace. Nice hop aroma. Orange peels. Pineapple rind. Grapefruit pith. Browned lemons. Watermelon rind. Has a pleasant earthiness to it as well. Autumn leaves. Mushroomed tree stumps. Chanterelles. Medium toffee malts. Mildly juicy. Semi-fruity but a good dry spicy finish. Alpine keeps surprising me with new solid variations of IPAs. Good stuff!
