Draft at the brewery. Clear gold. Light aroma of citrus hops. Bitterness that builds in the flavor from the sweeter start. My favorite of everything I tried from Alpine except for expo.

"Long time wish list item lived up to expectations. Slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Citrus, tropical fruit and lots of pine resin, especially on the palate. A sneaky 8%. Just a little bit of malt to balance. Wonderful hoppy brew."
