Thanks to largadeer for this tick.

Growler pours clear golden with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film.

The aroma is hoppy, believe it or not, with citrus and herbal notes, and a bready malt character behind it.

The flavor is interesting, rather biscuity and bready, with an average hop bite. Earthy with orange and grapefruit.

Medium-light bodied and crisp with good hop oils and very high drinkability.

Not quite Alpine’s best, but enjoyable as always.

Pours a golden brown. With a 2 inch foamy head

Smell - straight grain smell. Hints of citrius and hops. Seems very light.

Taste - more hops up front but finish with that distinct Alpine taste. Super smooth citrus and some hop bitterness.

Overall - this beers is an outstanding sessions ale with just enough hops for the hop lovers in all of us, but still very easy to drink.

Pours a light straw with a 1" very creamy white head.

Even front a pint glass the smell knocks you out with overloads of fresh citrusy hops.

The taste doesn't quite match up to the smell. Good initial citrus flavor, but it could use more hops for a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is very light as it is a low ABV beer. I could definitely see this as a good session beer. If it would be a touch hoppier, it'd be near perfect in that regard, but as is, still a good beer.

Growler generously provided by ArthurPendragon. Thanks.

Pours a shade of pale gold with slight haze. The head retains well and leaves some webbing on the glass.

Pretty awesome aroma. Sharp and fruity, a lot of sweet citrus, orange flesh, marijuana, a touch of tropical fruit. In the usual Alpine fashion, there isn't much malt character.

Taste is slightly below the nose, though it's still great. It has some great zesty citrusy hop flavors, grapefruit and orange primarily, with a bit of tropical fruit goodness beneath that. Some bready malt flavor provides a backbone. The finish exhibits a gentle, mild bitterness that's followed by even more juicy hop flavor.

While I still prefer Hoppy Birthday, this is another fantastic pale ale from Alpine.

Picked up a growler at the brewpub...poured into my Mikasa pint glass

New Millennium pours a clear, lightly golden-tan, as it emits aromas of fresh pine and citrus. The nose yields a light tropical tone that touches scents of yeasty bread and pastries. The flavors follow, with the tropical notes slightly more pronounced than in the nose. There's a distinguishing lemon-citrus overtone, which plays nicely with the honey-sweet malts. A nice contrast of bitter and sweet throughout the swallow, NM is eminently drinkable, carried by a relatively light complexion and mouthfeel. A perfect session beer...hopefully we'll soon see this in Alpine's regular line up.

Growler shared by Evan at Sour Fest. Thanks!

A: The pour is a clear golden color with a nice tall white head and some streaks of lace.

S: As usual with a hoppy Alpine beer, the nose is just stellar. Great citrus character to it with plenty of floral and spicy notes as well. A bit of bread and and biscuit give the beer some malt flavor and a light sweetness.

T: The citrus hops are the first thing I taste here and the grapefruit and tangerine notes are just great. A touch of grass along with some rather strong floral hop flavors. Like with the nose, just enough malt flavor and sweetness.

M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Just supremely easy to drink. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: Clear golden color with a thin white head and pretty nice lacing.

S: Some muted citrus aromas along with some citrus hops. A little caramel as well.

T: Pine hops with a biscuity malt backbone. A bit of citrus sweetness in there as well. A nice tasting beer at the start but it kind of died for me on the back half. Not my favorite from Alpine.

Dark brown in the pint glass. Starts out malty with a fairly rich flavor. Tangy with modest carbonation and minimal head. Hops are quite aromatic but not particularly bitter. Some warm flavors of roasted barley. Slightly sweet maltiness. Tart and bitter aftertaste. Thin body. A touch of perfume and flowers in the aroma.

On tap at the Pizza Port Ocean Beach. Has a nice aromatic hop flavor to start but is not very rewarding for a big quaff.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad.

A- Golden orange color with a finger of rocky white foam. Crystal clear with plumes of bubbles continuously rising. Nice lacing.

S- Pale, biscuity malt with fruity citrus notes.

T- Starts out with a nice hoppy bite. Orange peel and tangerine predominate. A nice malt backbone makes it's presence known mid-palate and the beer finishes semi-dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

M- Feel is light to medium with a prickly level of carbonation.

O- A very refreshing Pale from Alpine. It's hoppy, citrusy, and goes down very easily. A perfect brew for warm San Diego afternoons. Recommended!
