Fresh growler shared by largadeer. HOP PUNS FOR THE WIN HELL YES!!!
Pours clear copper with a great lacey white head. Looks incredible.
Aroma is typical amazing Alpine: citrusy, floral, and herbal hops, as well as just a hint of sweet malt.
Flavor is amazing for a pale ale (or really more of an IPA). Citrusy - tangerine and grapefruit - with an excellent tropical fruit note and some herbal qualities. Just a little sweet malt in the background.
Medium-bodied with great hop resins.
Overall, just incredible. This is what every pale ale should aspire to. I could session the hell out of this if the ABV were under 4.00% and I were legally allowed to do so by British law.
Serving type: growler

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
