Mmmm mmm, Babyface is so damn cute and smooth, Raul just wants to pinch those Rosy red cheeks! Delicate hops like the day Adriana Lima was born (who is freshly divorced - can Raul get a hells to the yeah?) with enough complexity to make you think twice like the last time you ate Jack n the Box.

Yep!

On tap at the pub – multiple pints
04/23/14

A: Faint straw gold with some really well conditioned clarity giving evidence to all the tiny streaming bubbles within. Thick finger patch of ivory foam comes to a rest on top. Ample stay power here with some lightly etched lace that leaves a few dots and swaths left in its wake.

S: Smells of sugary gooseberry with some catty melon, grapefruit spice, and lots of tropical fruit. Mango most notably. Not particularly stand out with the white wine grape but no bother. The fruity tropical bouquet on this one is awesome! Touch of light bready malt character reveals as well.

T: Tropical fruits intertwine with grapefruit flesh, melon, sauvignon grape, and spice. Definitely has a lot of mango and spicy guava influence. More so than its big brother Nelson I would say. There is a firm malty bread like presence to it that has this drinking as a standard IPA would. Totally satisfying and refreshing with a nice hop bitterness on the palate. Lends to a super dry finish with another influx of tropic spice. Doesn’t strike me as a baby Nelson rather than a new beer all its own. One which is damn tasty!

M: Very light and frothy on the palate as to be expected. Dash of filling malts to carry it through completion. Upper to moderate hop bitterness. Super dry and crisp at the finish with a very clean egress.

D: Alpine can do no wrong when it comes to the hops. Probably the best Sessions IPA I have experienced yet with loads of tropical hop flavors and enough malty presence to bring this together. Just a super crusher right here. Hope to see this one become a regular.

You know it’s nice to be able to knock a few back here at the pub and not have to worry about the drive back home.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, tropical fruit, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower good of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.
