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.

Vignale (3322) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2016
Flaska på Bishop Gustav. En zestig och torr APA för man väl säga med 5,25%. Bra kropp i bakgrunden med lite smörkakor som skapar balans mot den citruszestiga och gräsiga gröna humlen. Gott.

SG111 (1267) - New York, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Bottled. Best by 12/30/16. Pours fairly clear orange, white head, sort of a thin appearing head. Aroma is brilliant orange notes, a bit of dankness, malt backbone, grapefruit, lemon. Really nice citrus notes there. Flavor is fairly sweet orange, pretty pronounced dankness, but overall pine dominates in the finish. Pronounced biscuit malt backbone. Really good session. Not watery in the body at all.

canary dog (743) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
I am always a little leery about this type of beer: the low alcohol IPA. Why? Because if I want these lower levels of alcohol, and want to have a session, I will drink something more delicious and quaffable, like a good German Pils. IPAs are for brief sessions, or one-offs, and are better for the one or two beer buzz. Nonetheless, this is a fine tasting brew and I can see why it is so highly regarded. Leery or not, I would buy another 6 of these.

Past the best by date but still good. Weren’t IPAs originally brewed for long ocean voyages? Fairly bitter and dry on the palate, with flavors of leafy green vegetables and a little caramel. A bit astringent but still smooth. The aroma is dank and a little weird, with touches of cheese and fruit. I enjoyed the label a lot, with its picture of a cake covered with hops.
