bomber aquired as extra in trade with MASPuros..thanks..poured into pint glass
a-clear yellowish orange color....nice three finger head and fell to some ok lacing and stuck around...very little carbonation visibly..
s-smells sweet...like a honey tea or something....really thats all is smells like...nothing offensive not overly complex either..
t-a lot like the nose....its really honey forward...then you can tell theres like a pale ale base under there or something...just enough hops to keep this from being cloyingly sweet...the orange is really faint...no coriander detected im pleased to anounce...finishes sweet
m-a little slick maybe from the low carb even though i got a decent head....the sweetness really lingers on this one..it is a little heavy on the body to me..
d-if not for the heavy body and lack of availability here it would make a good lawnmower beer...
overall nothing to offensive to warrant a negative review...its a good beer just not great

my first alpine beer! it kind of sucks...
like the other guy said- apricot color, not carbonated much, no head.
smells like a crappy brew.
sorry, I might just be in a piss-y mood, but this is rather bland with a funky aftertaste. why go into details? kind of novelty tasting.... harsh. very difficult to finish the entire bottle. 5 oz flight taster, sure; but never a 22oz bottle.... sorry guys... still cant wait to make the drive down to taste your good stuff...

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
