Bomber from K&L Redwood City.

Nice appearance, golden with a medium white head.

The aroma is noticeably non-hoppy for Alpine. Pale malt and grains with just a slight herbal and citrusy hop note.

The flavor is pretty solid. Herbal hops and sweet pale malt, not too hoppy really, although the bitterness is there.

Dry and crisp on the mouthfeel with medium body and carbonation.

A good but not great pale ale. Drinkable at least.

Overall just okay. I've tried some of the best California has to offer, so I'm a bit tough. No head, kinda flat and the taste is just right down the middle. Bought this cause I've heard such great things about some of their other beers. It could just be my taste, but overall this beer will be one and done for me.

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Justin!

Poured into a imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" off-white head over the clear amber brew. Head collapses slowly, with lasting lace. Aroma is balanced and understated.

Taste is sweet upfront, a peek of citrus in the middle, and balanced through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, with easy drinkability. I, for one, will not slam Alpine for a brew that isn't over-the-top hoppy. Nice, approachable sessionable brew. Good stuff.
