hapjydeuce (952) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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.

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2014
On draught at Good Karma in San Jose. Clear golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, herbal hops and malt. Light-bodied with a zesty grapefruit character and notes of grassy hops and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

BucannonXC5 (933) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Type: Growler Glass: Firestone pint glass From: Alpine Beer Company Pub in Alpine, Calif. Price: $12.82 Purchased: Oct. 24, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 24, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey, orange, semi-hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white head. Slow stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Below average spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average spider web retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.88) Smelled a ton of pleasant hops, reminding me instantly of an IPA. Got Citra hops, floral hops, grapefruit, orange, orange creamscicle, nectarine, tangerine, caramel, tropical hops, orange pulp, mango, pineapple and slight earthy rye hops. Best initial Alpine comparison is a Nelson. (Smell - 4.63) Tasted a lot like the nose, although I don’t think quite as good. Got Citra hops, floral hops, bitter grapefruit rind, orange pulp, caramel, orange creamscicle, nectarine, tangerine, tropical hops, mainly pineapple and mango, and New Zealand hops. (Taste - 4.50) Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.38) Just a fantastic pale ale and I feel like I kind of underrated it. Glad I still have ¾ of a growler left. (Overall - 4.50) 4.48 99 A
