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...

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
