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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

No date on bottle...

Large flowing white pillow head. Loosely packed soapy foam. Brew has nice orange clarity. Moderate lacing.

Bready and clearly crystal. A bit of a malt bomb missing much hop. Dry and bland.

Zero sharpness. watery, dry, earthy, missing hops flavors. Very mild grapefruit flavor, very hidden and laid back. Tons of caramel/crystal malt. Belgian sugars too. Sweetness is mild, bitterness is existent, but not pronounced. Carbonation overwhelms the flavors and appropriate dryness..

A disappointing brew from Alpine; nothing memorable. Worthy, but not worth seeking.
