4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
OK, drank a shit ton of this on draft at Taste Of Tops in Tempe. It was irresistible. Iím only human, right? It was filled into a short tulip glass (on several occasions) with a clear copper body and thick gold edges supporting a semi firm light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up tangelo citrus and rich tropical mango fruit like notes with resiny grassiness here and there too. The taste is similar with vibrant rich tangelo, clementine citrus and mango-y tropical fruity notes that are infused with loads of hop flavor and grow into resiny to grassy hop bitterness from time to time. Wonderful brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
IT pours a clear apple cider gold with a fizzy white head that leaves dots of lacing but isnít particularly pretty.
The smell is tropical, a hint of heirloom tomato. Noticeable grain.
The flavor has some sugar cookie elements along with a tangy hoppiness. Tropical, low bitterness. Super super sweet. Boozy.
Not a huge fan.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, creamy/frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, apricot), with notes of laundry detergent, linoleum, candy sugar, light note of sauerkraut.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Truly disturbing aroma with some off-notes that literally make me cringe...even if you ignore or donít smell those, the aroma is about as simple and crude as it gets...resinous hops and almost nothing else. Extremely sweet and syrupy in the mouth with a dirty aftertaste. Surprisingly poor, given both the average score and Alpineís involvement. Looks nice, but thatís about it. Total drain pour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Fiery golden, clear, large frothy white head, clumpy lacing.   Sweet citrus peel and pith.   Not candied or floral, but very citrus oriented none the less.   Sweet pith and citrus peel on the tongue, very little bite.   Flavorful without being overly bitter.   Very nice balance between the hops and malts.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Very smooth, but not too bright on the nose or on the tongue.   Very clean otherwise.   Drank pretty good donít it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours golden with a rich off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor that is totally dominated by simcoe hop bitterness. Though unbalanced, still a very tasty brew.

Draft at special brews. Pours a crystal clear burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy white head and dense sheeting wooly lace. Big fresh pineapple and pine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, pineapple, pine, and toast on the mid palate. Long crisp fruity finish. Magically delicious.
