A beer like this couldn’t be passed up despite the reputation of Alpine these days. After trying it I may give a few more drafts a shot. If it is anything to go by they’ve not lost their ’A’ game in cranking out world class West Coast hop bombs.

Aroma / Appearance - A bronze carbonated body shimmers below a layer of protective white head. Bright rosy hops, fresh citrus, and floral aspects lazily float upwards like dandelion puffs in a summer breeze.

Flavor / Palate - A first sip delays the sharp bitterness for mere seconds before it explodes on the tongue and throat. Oranges, cloves, and resin coat the corners of the mouth with a sessionable bitterness that is present without being abrasive. If this were on draft at an event I’d have no problems with ordering a pint or two while socializing.

Clear Amber, soapy sticky head. Lots of citrus with undertones of tropical, and a touch of dank, medium bitter. Drinks like an ipa, smooth mouth. Really nice and my first from inside GA state lines.
