4.74/5 rDev +4.4%
On tap at a pizza port. Pint.
A: Liquid gold opaque. A thing of beauty. Full and opaque. Thin head but looks lovely in the light.
S: Comes in very subtle. Grapefruit citrus with a honey sweetness.
T: Perfection. I've had this on cask before and didn't enjoy it as much. On tap amazing. Heavy grapefruit pez candy-esque with honey coming in. Hoppy but well rounded and not abrasive.
M: Holds the sweetness and citrus character beautifully start to finish this has the best mouthfeel an apa can have.
O: Impressive but then again its alpine. This is a real treat. I should rate this higher because for its style its world class pale ales just aren't one of my favorite styles and they made an outstanding one.

On tap at Amazing Grapes in Rancho Santa Margarita. So excited to see this on tap outside of actually going to Alpine.
A: Hazy golden amber with a wispy head that recedes quickly. Moderate lacing.
A: Holy crap.. Zesty orange, sweet tangerine, and pine. A backbone of malt emerges as it warms. HUGE hop aroma for an APA.
T: Bitter orange rind and sweet tropical fruits. Crackery malt takes up the rear. So much flavor in respect to the ABV.
M: Soft and thin mouthfeel leads to ridiculous drinkability, and a dry finish accentuates the potent hop character. Masterful.
O: Damn near perfect for the style. Insanely crushable yet abundantly flavorful, seems like this was the 'session ipa' before the style was coined. Beautiful beer, and I can't wait to have it again.
