COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who says the hoppiness of a full-blooded American pale ale canít be an explosion of hops? Alpha Master is a sessionable ale loaded with Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops in the kettle. Itís then generously dry hopped for two weeks with Simcoe and Centennial for a resiny and citrusy aroma. Restrained use of British caramel malt lets the hops come front and center. This beer will surely master your palate and olfactory senses.

popery (1974) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
clear amber beer. Medium white head. Lots of lacing with good head retention. Aroma is predominantly pine and tangerine citrus with some tropical notes - mango, pineapple. Mild bready malt backbone, but itís definitely hop forward. Taste is dry with good hop flavor. Just a touch of bland bitterness in the finish, not that I mind. Just a touch of malt flavor but itís mostly those same hop notes coming through. Light on the palate. Drying. Tasty stuff.
