Tap at the brewery. Rating #5. Didn’t get to try the Alpine version so I can’t compare. This was a very nice drinker, medium bitterness and a pretty decent aroma. (2625)

Very nice, very sessionable single hop ale using Chinook hops. Very nice slight citrus an earthy flavors but a little thin on the palate. At 5.6% it is a beer that I could drink all day. I preferred this over the alpine slightly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. A slightly hazy straw yellow color, with a white head. Lemon, grapefruit, citrusy hops, a bit earthy, light bready dry malt, and grass. A light IPA, easy drinking, but unfortunately not very interesting.
