Growler shared at Woodshop 7. Not super fresh but way better than plenty of fresher hoppy beers out there. Sweet citric aroma with oranges, tangerines, lemons and mild stone fruit. Flavor is nice and tropical, grapefruit and orange and mango, a hint of sweeter malts in the back, dry finish and lightly bitter.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael!
The beer appears straw yellow and slightly hazy. The head is thick and white, displays lasting retention, and leaves ample lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma...wow. One of the best aromas in a pale ale I have ever experienced. This would give any IPA more than a run for its money. Fresh hops and a blast of varied citrus. The flavor is absolutely phenomenal. This is perhaps the most drinkable and enjoyable <6% beer I have had the pleasure to sample. Perfect? Ya, pretty much. My highest recommendation.

Growler at Woodshop 7. Not exactly mega fresh since this hasn’t been brewed in awhile, but CP filled and immediately fridged by a Woodshop attendee. Clear to chill haze golden pour. Spotty white foam. Nose is big mango and tangelo. Taste is tangy, nutty, rich, fresh and chewy butterscotch. Heavy, rich, quenching, elusive butterscotch quality only found in select West Coast IPAs like Port Wipeout, Alesmith IPA, Alpine Duet. Very yummy. Amazing palate. Very bitter through the long finish. Still holding up- will be a knockout fresh on tap.

Tap. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is super tropical fruit forward, lots of orange, some white grape and grapefruit. Flavor follows the nose tons of tropical fruit with lots of mango and pineapple, lots of juicy hops with the orange and white grape and grapefruit. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall probably the best APA I have ever had, I love Alpine!
