Growler shared by Dan, thanks! Pours a golden straw with a 1.5 finger head. Nose reveals a fruity, almost tropical pineapple note. well carbonated. Taste is sweet malt, super floral and citrus hop forward notes with a nice grassy-ness in the finish. Best Alpine beer I’ve had.

On tap at Toronado. Pours a nice hazy gold. Smells of melon, grapefruit and slight tropical fruits. Taste is similar with a very mild bitterness, clean crispness and smooth finish. One of the best pale ales I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at City Beer. Nose is a hop explosion of citrus, grapefruit and a touch tropical. Pour is hazy gold with a right white head. Taste is a lightly sweet tropical hop that fades into a pepper in the back of the throat. Hop flavor continues to build with each sip.

10 ounce sample on tap at DeVere’s in Sacramento. The aroma is super citrussy with a ton of grapefruit and mango. Smells so incredibly awesome. A rare perfect 10 on aroma. Mildly hazy copper body with a small to medium cream-colored head present. Good lacing also persists. This beer starts with a strange celery flavor. Moderate-to-high bitterness is present. Becomes very dry and herbal in the middle. Crazy celery seed flavors come through in the bittering hops used to finish this. One dimensional in a way. I wanted to like this more, given the aroma.

On tap @ Good Karma San Jose. Pours a golden appearance with a cream colored head. Lemony, spicy, grapefruity hoppy nose. Nice body. Juicy, tropical fruity flavor. Dank weed, spicy hoppy flavor. Pretty high bitterness. Chuggable.

Very hoppy smell. Slightly cloudy orange colour. Slightly dry initial mouthfeel. Bitter, grapefruit aftertaste. Very hoppy as the name suggests! (K)

In draught at Harry’s Hofbrau. Big grapefruit, citrus and floral hop with moderate earth. Clear golden-copper with white head that dissipates quickly. Resin, earth and pine aroma. High bitterness. Sweet soup cracker malt. Juicy fruit lingers long on the palate.

On draft. Big floral hop aroma. Huge hop forwardness, mostly sticky pine. Whiff of chocolatey malts gives way to a dry finish. Superb.
