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.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a perfectly clear golden amber with a short, white head that leaves very little lacing. Nicely carbonated.

S - Not very hop forward, mostly malt notes on the nose, wheat is what I mostly pick up.

M - Easy drinking medium bodied beer with good carbonation.

T - More of what hit the nose, malty with a small amount of hops.

O - A nicely done pale ale but missing the hops that I would make me appreciate more.
