It does meet all of the check marks of the description of it here on ratebeer. But I don’t really like it. But to be fair that would be a lot of pale ales like it. The malts and earthiness I guess. And shouldn’t have it next to a big juicy double IPA. Draft at uncle mikes. Dank fruit and a little sweet. Fine for the style overall cheap (5861) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 New rating 4/16 - at mad mex atwood. Pale yellow, mild perfumy ipa aroma. Yes, quite mild and fairly sweet fer sure, but not in a cloying way, more like ice cider sweetness. Finally a beer that is not trying to be aan IPA and I like that attitude, just a well amde APA fer sure, nice job alpine. Not sure how the previous version I had at brixton was so different. OLD: Finally got to try this. At brixton. Clear pale yellow. Not much aroma. Does have a medium high bitter content. Builds. Begins to border on ipa. Just plain old American style ale, heheh, with all the typical ale attributes, none are overdone.

Pours a pale gold color with a good head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is very mild, but it’s got some pleasant orange and varied citrus aromas, it’s a little bit malty & really quite clean smelling
The flavor has a nice citrusy & melon hop thing happening. The beer has a moderate level of bitterness, the malt character is light but works well here for balance as well as complexity. It’s got a medium dry flavor, which is cool.
The whole thing is real mild, and that’s perfectly fine.
Tap at Bier Baron. Pours clear dark gold, lots of head and lots of lacing. Nose is sweet, some earthy bitterness. Flavours are light dank, grapefruit, earthy bitterness, juicy. Mouth is fully sticky body with lively carbonation and lasting bitterness. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. jc1762 (1436) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Small shaker showing moderately filtered honey colors.
The nose shows light pine.
Flavors are malt forward, lager-like, very slight hop kick at the end. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Sample at the Malt Shoppe. Orange pour. Bit of a foamy head. Sweet fruits in the nose. Quite light. 13.4 tiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2015
