Glass: Pint glass
From: Alpine Beer Company in Alpine, Calif.
Purchased: Jan. 5, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 5, 2014
Poured an orange, clear color with one finger of white head when I got it. Minimal lacing on the sides. Minimal retention on the top.
Had to work for the smell initially. Got mandarin, nectarine, citrus, floral and orange rind.
Tasted mandarin, nectarine, floral hops and citrus hops.
Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish.
A pretty decent beer, but not great. I probably wouldn’t have it again and definitely wouldn’t if I was at Alpine Beer Company.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer was poured into a standard pint glass from a 22 recently purchased from Alpine. I am confident this brew is fairly fresh.
A - The head appears standard white, with medium bubble density and thickness. The body is clear and golden in color. The appearance is nice and clean.
S - The smell is light, citrusy, and sweet.
T - The taste is also light, citrusy, and bright. There is sweetness throughout and tanginess at the backend.
M - The mouthfeel is easy, airy, and clean.
O - This is a nice summer beer for those hot, sunny days, when you need something that will not hold you down. This beer is nicely spiced and easy to drink. My wife and her girlfriend really enjoyed this brew during the afternoon. Simple drinking here...
