4.58/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Perhaps my favorite brewery...Alpine once again knocks one out of the park; Poured from a growler into an Alpine pint glass at roughly 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

A: A crystal clear golden hue beer that supported a white frothy head and ample amounts of lacing.

S: Semi-sweet rye-like malt, pine, floral, and ester aromas.

T: A nice balance of sharp and sweet malt that helps balance out the multitude of hop flavors. Perhaps the most extremely rich APA I've ever had.

M: A light bodied brew that provides a slightly dry finish on the palate.

D: A perfect balance between light body and flavor; could of devoured the whole growler by myself.

Overall: Really couldn't ask for more in beer. Easy to drink, lots of flavor, and a style that most people can enjoy. A must try. Cheers!

Serving type: growler

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: 4.25 Cloudy orange gold with a one inch off white head.

S: 4.25 Bready and hoppy with tropical fruits and some dank.

T: 4.5 Similar to the nose with some more breadlines and a bitter/dry finish.

M: 4.5 Nice body with good carbonation. The dryness makes this beer quite refreshing.

O: 4.25 Lots if flavor, especially for a pale ale. Almost up there with Alpine’s IPAs.

Serving type: on-tap
