Very good IPA, nelson hops. Citrus notes and well balanced leading to a good finish.

One of the better breweries in SoCal.

What an odd looking beer. Not sure if this is typical, but the beer appears to have a slight green hue. Fortunately it smells great, lots of citrus. Taste is a notch below the small, but still a high quality IPA, wasn't wowed by it based on Alpine hype. Would happily drink this again, but don't plan to seek it out.
