3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Came back to this one, fresher than the last time. Perfectly clear gold, modest head. Nose of pine sap, ripe tangerine, lemon, lime, hint of passionfruit, dried apple, sweet flowers, and lightly caramelized malt. Flavor of bright spruce, white flowers, candied lemon, tangerine, ethereal lavender wafting the roof of the mouth after consecutive sips. Bitter floral finish, clean body, nice hop balance. Unmistakably Alpine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated on 4-07-2016 (Bottle - Best by 16Aug16) When poured, this beer’s appearance is a medium sized off-white fizzy head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and herbal. The flavor of this beer is heavily bitter, citrus, tropical fruit, and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very solid beer all the way around. It is excellent tasting and easy drinking. It is a nice refreshing beer that is well worth trying and a beer that I would definitely drink again and again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Slight hazy orange gold with lasting head and lace. Nice fresh citrus floral and spice aroma. Toffee and grassy malts with some orange peach apricot. Assertive pine resin and citrus rind long bitterness in dry finish. Medium light body lively carbo to accentuate hops. Possible more bitter than required but still delicious. Guess I gotta save some for the wife. She’ll dig it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham; 5.25% ABV, bb 20 Apr 2016
Hazy golden to amber color, medium sized head. The aroma balances three hop components, the fruity, the resiny and the dunk. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; nice malt profile, a bit of cereals and bread, maybe a touch of rye, before the strong bitterness; the hop flavor is mainly resiny, with some bitter orange peel.
Very well made.
