Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Bright golden pour with a froth oh white foam. Sharp pine with citrus, melon, and a lightly bready malt backbone. Taste is balanced pine and bitterness with a really clean semi-bready malt presence. Some sweetness as well. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Might fine IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap in Long Beach. It pours golden with an off white head. The aroma has tropical fruit and hints of caramel. The flavor has piney hops with quite a bit of caramel and hints of bready malt. More balanced than I expected after trying their hop bomb of an APA. Bitter finish. I actually liked the Alpha Master better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Phone rate. Tap at Toronado SD. Clear golden amber with a one finger creamy eggshell head, good retention. Big pine nose up front, grapefruit and citrus following. Not much in the way of malt. Flavor adds a little sweet caramel that makes for some sweet ripe orange--a little less piney as well, as the fruity hops take over, even adding a but of canned pineapple. Also, caramel much more apparent in the nose as it warmed. Small amount of dry hops noted at warmer temps. Finish was dry, bitterness peaked at a 7, alcohol masked well. Light prickly carbonation with a medium body. Pretty solid--I usually like my caramel malt kept to a minimum, but this blended really well and made the hops taste candied.
