An Extra pale with an experimental hop, I asked around for the name but no one was sure, it's just a number until there's a demand for it. I think this one might stick, this is a solid, refreshing and flavorful pale, and if they didn't claim the fact they were new hops, I wouldn't have been able to tell. The specs:


From tap to pint at the brewpub.

A: Clear straw-yellow with a copper hue, the beer has a traditional pale appearance. A small head quickly dissipates with a few patches of lacing upon receding.

S: Slightly citrusy hop aromas anchor the bouquet, with dry grassy notes in tow. Some honey sweetness pokes through, breaking up the relatively dry, crisp aromas. The nose is fairly subdued for the style, especially for an Alpine ale.

T: The flavors are more pronounced, with mildly bitter hops at the front with touches of citrus rind priming the palate. Dry, grassy ad yeasty mid-sip, a little biscuity. A proportional malt-backbone evens things out, the sweet aspects carrying Alpine's signature flavors. Finishes short, slightly bitter and dry.

M: Light-to-medium bodied, appropriate for the style. Not as oily-slick as other alpine brews.
