A-Deep, orange hued copper with a thin white head that left spotty lacing.
S-In the red corner the pine resin scent of Simcoe! In the blue corner the citrus zest scent of Amarillo! Lets get ready to rumble!
T-Bam! A massive right hook to my palate with the duel attack of Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Then comes in a bit of caramel malt sweetness to make sure I am OK!
M-Medium-light bodied a a bit on the thin side...this one is all about the hops so damn the malt support....give me more hops!
D-A hop head I am and this is a hop heads brew. Simcoe and Amarillo...how can you go wrong? Alpine didn't with this one that's for sure!

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Justin!
Poured into a imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" off-white head over the clear golden brew. Head slowly fizzles away, with lasting lace. Aroma is all about the citrus.
Taste is moderate sweetness to start, which is quickly overpowered by citrus hoppiness in the middle, and cruises through the close with pine and ample but not overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Excellent brew, and shows how we can have plenty of hops character and flavor, yet keep the bitterness under control. Bitter is nice, but bitter for bitter's sake gets old. None of that here.
