A big thanks to hamilton23 for sending this growler. Much appreciated, Steve! From notes on Sept. 10.
A- Pours a translucent gold with a two finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing behind.
S- Tons of citrus and tropical fruit with grapefruit rind, blood orange, lemon, , mango and peach as well as pine needles and a bit of biscuit malt at the finish.
T- Follows the aroma with grapefruit, blood orange, mango and pine needles with just the smallest amount of biscuit malt at the finish.
M- Medium carbonation and a light mouthfeel that finished a bit dry.
O- Just an amazing amount of flavor for being a 5.25% beer. Extremely drinkable and one I would happy sipping on all day.

Another super-dry hop bomb from Alpine. This one low enough gravity to have 3 at a sitting. On draught at the Rose & Crown, Palo Alto. Cloudy pale orange pour with a finger of foam which persisted until first taste. Apricot nose and orange rind, no appreciable sweetness. A perfect IPA for a hot summer day.
Serving type: on-tap
