On tap at the brewery numerous occasions. Super easy drinking ale. Very refreshing on a warm day out east in Alpine. Bitter, floral and crisp throughout with citrus and pine character, very thirst quenching. Just like the rest of Alpines world-class bitter brews, insanely balanced from beginning to end.

Draft at Good Dog. Hazy orange gold pour with a slim white head that left a nice show of lace. Nice hop aroma. Orange peels. Pineapple rind. Grapefruit pith. Browned lemons. Watermelon rind. Has a pleasant earthiness to it as well. Autumn leaves. Mushroomed tree stumps. Chanterelles. Medium toffee malts. Mildly juicy. Semi-fruity but a good dry spicy finish.
