Glad I got to partake of prototypic's growler.
A - This beer has a healthy amount of gold color with some light amber in the background. The eggshell head is light and sticks around for maybe a minute or two. It recedes to a cap that barely covers the top of the brew. Lacing has a definite presence. Color is lighter than expected but that isn't always a bad thing.
S - Starts with sweet citrus right off the bat. Maybe some blood orange with a little mango backing it up. Aroma gives way to a more bitter grapefruit around midway. Tobacco pop in midway to end. Alcohol pretty well hidden in the aroma. Light caramel and bread are present on a very distant tail end.
T - Taste somewhat follows aroma. Sweeter fruitiness up front. I'm getting orange, mango, and tangerine. Bitterness is more pronounced in the flavor. Grapefruit is in the mix but seems to get overcome by an earthy / piney flavor. Tobacco and grass come in around midway and stay through til the end. Finishes off with cookie dough...orange flavored cookie dough. Alcohol is noted but it ties in well with the other flavors.
M - Medium bodied with a fairly light carbonation. Finish is very dry and abuses the palate (in a good way).
D - Drinkability is good for a beer o this stature. It pretty much fits a bill that any hophead could come to love. All the flavors come together in a balance that makes this brew pretty special - sweet and bitter hops, malt backbone, ABV that stays mostly out of the way, etc. Hands down, one of my favorite Alpine brews to date.

This beer is served on tap/draught. It has a golden yellow/gold pour with a small white head. Aromas consist of a floral citrus/grapefruit blend. This taste begins as it smells with a piney and bitter aftertaste. A hint of orange can also be tasted. Overall smooth and balanced
Serving type: on-tap
