Pours light orange with almost no head. Aroma is citrusy hops and just a wisp of pine. The flavor is refreshing and crisp. Light citrus and pine cone with a little yeast make up the flavor. I enjoyed this more than the Nelson.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from 22 oz bomber into pint glass. Beautiful clear gold with a white head that quickly dissipates to a thin wispy cap with nice lacing. Juicy aroma redolent of citrus and flower petals. The spicy bitter hoppiness is balanced wonderfully by a sweet malty backbone. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes dry. Overall a very well crafted ale that is worth the trouble tracking down!

Mouthfeel is probably my favorite thing about this beer. It is one of Alpines more malty beers. So if you like malt then you’ll love this one. It is one of a kind and another solid beer by Alpine.

Bottle shared by Smith in the GTMW line - Pours clear golden with a soapy white head. Nose is soapy, dank hops, fruity with a bit of savory, spicy hops on the finish. Tastes bigger than an IPA, boozy and warm, with lots of stinky dank onion/garlic hops. Fluffy and pretty full-bodied. Tasty, tasty stuff.

Sample pour of deep good with a decent white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is sharp hops, plenty of citrus, especially grapefruit.... And Parmesan cheese? Great flavor of plenty of hops and citrus, super juicy. Nice all the way!
