Draft at Alpine, Nose is okay, color is okay but taste is very offensive, tastes very soapy, disenfectant almost, and finishes like pine sol. amazing that another rater was there the same day I was and had a completely different experience

On tap at O’Briens in San Diego. Very floral aroma, dry throughout with notes of green grass, lemon, hay and biscuit. A slight basil, funky note as well. Not too much different than the Pure Hop or Duet, but really tasty overall.

On tap @ O’Brien’s: Clear golden liquid topped with thin layer of foam on top. Aroma is bold with citrus fruits and juice and has traces of grapefruit, orange and could also have Nelson hops? Extremely bitter with hops with a slight metallic taste. Reminds me of the pure hoppiness just with a different hops used.

Tap at 38 Degrees for The Full Pint Anniversary party. Pours a clear, bright golden with medium foam. Good, sticky lacing. Nose is potpourri, flowers, jasmine, vanilla, gamey honey. Taste is heavy hop resin, vanilla, potpourri. Soft, quenching mouthfeel. Excellent.

Draft at Alpine... Pours a bright golden orange in color. Good head. Looks good. Taste is lavender, floral, vanilla and soapy with an overall bitterness. For some reason the soap flavor stands out to me. Medium carbonation... easy to drink. Overall: Mehhhh

Draft at OBriens. Clear amber pour, sticky white head. Juicy, fruity hops, citrus, caramel malt, some sweetness, and light bitterness. Nice fresh tasty hops, with a sweet side. I enjoyed it.

A golden orange pour with a white head. Grassy hops, sweet tarts, and tons of grapefruit. Some lemon, pine, and a strong Fruity Pebbles aroma. Very dry with very little malt character. The flavor has a strong Fruity Pebbles character, too. Bitter pine, grapefruit, and lemon zest. Some hints of grass, mild bread, and a nice floral note. Good beer, but not my favorite from Alpine.
