brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 15, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden color with a drop of orange for a little variety. A nice fluffy white head and solid lacing. S: This is what you expect from an Alpine beer: tons and tons of hops. Lots of grapefruit and some tropical fruit notes along with plenty of pine, too. If there’s a malt scent in there, I couldn’t find it. T: The hops continue to dominate on the palate. A very nice resinous bitterness along with tons of fruit character. Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, and lots of pine. M: The body is a bit on the light side, but this works just fine for a pale ale. A good amount of carbonation, and a real crisp finish. D: This is one of my new Alpine favorites. So brutally hoppy, but so easy to drink (helped along by a moderate ABV).
