A-Clear well carbonated amber, one finger head that leaves some lacing.
S-Rather malty, caramel, straw, what, not much in the way of hops.
T-Maltier for an APA than I'd like, but the balance is good, Starts caramel/straw and ends with a milt citrus and grass notes. Orange as well.
M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated.
O-Maltier than I was expecting from Alpine, but the balance was good. Don't expect a hoppy APA but for one on the malt forward side, it pulled it off.

I know it's Alpine, but I was warned that it's not in the hoppy vain they are famous for. Yet still this is pretty good. The smell is crisp and lagerish, maybe a hint of citrusy grass. The taste light malt, not forward as i expected. Slight, clean, dry hop on the end. As a lite APA it's very approachable. My wife found it quite refreshing. Be nice on a hot day--sessionable!

Pours out looking like a pale ale, mild to average color yellow, 3/5" head on the top, white in color, average retention, average, somewhat inconsistent lace on it.
The aroma is minimally hoppy, if you're looking for the hop bomb aromas that many of their ipa's have, you're going to be a little bit disappointed. It still smells nice, but its really a background smell that shares its place with a grainy aroma that is clean, not heavy.
Same with the taste, clean, not heavy, mildly hoppy, probably appropriate for style, but about the most minimalistic pale ale for Alpine. Comes out a little more English style-esque with the breadiness of the malts, almost a Sorachi ace like lemonness. You start to pick up on a little too much toffee and caramel to a lesser extent, making the minor hop vibe fade away a little too early.
Its a little expensive to pay around $6 for a bomber of this.

Poured from a 22 oz. Bomber into my Peroni Pilsner style glass.
A: A yellowish/Orange pour with an aggressive billowy white head, nice lacing throughout.
S: A little funky, almost a skunky smell but not overly offensive.
T: Slighly malt forward but a real short dry, perhaps bitter finish. rather boring in the end.
M: average for the style, easy drinking.
O: Certainly not something I would search out but nothing offensive either.

Thanks merc for sharing
The beer pours a slightly orange amber with a thin halo of white, streaky head. The nose is a bit toasty/caramely malts and subtle hint of hops. The taste is more like an amber with a clean drinking malt forward base followed by a sweet, lingering grapefruity hop bitterness. Well carbonated & attenuated, bitter semi-dry finish, light-medium bodied, drinkable. This is a good beer, almost sessionable, but nothing special.
