3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange with white head. Another great example from Alpine -- almost all the pine/citrus flavor without much alcohol. Not my favorite in this style, but definitely way up there.
DATE: August 8, 2017... OCCASION: celebrating forty-one years of life and thanking God for them all... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... pours a sizzling copper body teaming with effervescence... the white head is thick with bubbles as well, stopping at a half-finger and holding resiliently... grapefruit, pine, mango, light caramel and tea leaves, with the promise that this is indeed well hopped but also concerned with a balanced profile... the first sip is smooth, balanced and lively enough to elicit attention... creamy as it curls around the tongue, an embrace that causes one to pull back and savor--definitely bigger than its 5.25% ABV!... the back end is memorable, with a lingering malt sensation... the body is substantial but not weighty, as a session should be, and its hops announce nicely at the teeth... the six-headed hop monster is put in its place by a caramel backbone, lasting and ringing in its strength... welcome bitterness bites at the tongue and teeth, with grapefruit, pine, lemon, bitters, and that unmistakable hop punch that makes me wish more than one of these was in the mystery mix pack I found it in... I would buy a case of this, gladly, and rank it above the last few sessions I’ve had--and they were good, too... Borup (15321) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2017

Small bottle from Liberty on The Drive in Vancouver. A pale amber beer with moderate white head and a faint citrus hop nose. Moderately bitter, slightly fruity, muted malt background. Nicely balanced with moderate alcohol. A great refresher for a hot summer afternoon, and a perfect session ale. 3.7 Navers (218) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Beer served in 14°C, Duvel Glass. Pours golden with small and quickly disappearing head. Aroma is nicely hoppy, with resin, tropical fruits, petrol and floral notes. Flavor is filled with nice resin, herbal bitterness on the malty backbone. Easy drinking and tasty!

On tap at GF, a light citrus and resin aroma, pours a clear caramel color with a thin lasting white head. A medium body with a light citrus and pine resin taste. A bitter hops finish. Derhey (5) - - JUN 11, 2017 does not count
Nice beer; sits on the tongue with a great aftertaste of soft bitterness. Golden color not light but not dark either. Citrus/pine overall taste. I enjoyed this one.
