Had on tap @ The Bruery Saturday the 24th. The taster was so good I had to get a full glass. Off tap into Bruery Snifter/Tulip.

A: Sunshine filtered light honey. Some honey comb bubble formations with egg shell white foams. The body definitely has a lightly foggy sunlight body. Reminds me of early mornings in cold climates.

S: Musky wet rain woter hops and grains. Pungent hop with a mellow refined earthy quality. Lots of DIPA likeness in the nostrils, but there's a noticeable lightness to all of the notes. Grassy, but not the kind that's deeply rooted in earthiness. This is an airy breeze of cut grass tops, with lots of airy freshness to accentuate the beers other lightening qualities.

T: Thick hoppy flavor with negative ten on the alcohol scale. So much flavor in a brief zephyr. It's like taking a refreshing dip in a natural hop spring, and being free of resins or stickiness. Crisp flavors that are full of green and yellow grasses floating in fresh mountain air.

M: Light-medium body with subtle carbonation. This is pretty magical in the way that the flavor pops off of such a light body. Slight wateriness, but nothing that really kills or even interrupts the flavor. A slow steeping release of wet hop flavors.

O: Amazing flavor off of such a light feeling beer. This did hops in a very wet way. The hops seemed stripped of their sticky and earthy qualities, and were now being served as a condiment of crystalline bodies of water. This was lightly bitter, with a bit of shoe soles, and I really liked it. Some bamboo chutes and leafy dark greens. Some light steaming of collards and kale. This was wet deliciousness.

Thanks for sharing, NoSignsOfPain!

Clear golden amber. Thick white head and spots of lace left down the glass.

The aromas are of orange citrus, melon, pineapple, guava: an overwhelming aroma of fresh and pungent hops! The aromas are so bright, they practically leap out of the glass.

This beer is smooth, easy to drink, clean and disappearing, yet bitingly hoppy, pungent and citrusy. It's fruity, it's balanced, it's bitter, it's biting, it's tropical. It's everything I've ever wanted in a beer. It's superb.

Smooth, crisp, creamy yet airy, heavenly mouthfeel! This beer is extraordinary.

A masterpiece. One of those perfect beers.
The only pale ale better than Alpine's Hoppy Birthday.

Pours a surprisingly dark orange for a beer that is only 4.6%. Thin head, white. Slides down the glass, not much head or retention, but the burnt orange is really what is impressive to me. The smell is a fair funky hop presence. Funky citrra nelson type aroma. Grassy and loads of citrus.

Light mouthfeel in terms of malt body, the hops are flavorful, and not all that bitter, enjoyment maximized, thank you. Allows the pine to come out, you get equal mixes of citrus, tropical fruit and piney mild menthol. Very easy to drink, this makes it tough to go back to the usual stuff at the store. I think the carbonation is a little lower than their other humulus beers, that might be what is causing the oily slickness that a lot of people are talking about. Its far from a negative.

Actually pretty complex when you think about it. Orange, pineapple, pine. Yum Yum.

nice copper tone, with a good sized head that has some nice clumping and staying power as well as some decent lacing throughout. Smell is wonderfully hopped, like a pine cone dipped in orange juice! Fantastic full hoppy smell. Taste is right up with the smell. Full on hops from the gate. Piney, very grassy and citus, AWESOME. Very smooth with a nice dry aftertaste

Reviewed from notes taken on 11/2/11 during a wet-hop festival. This offering of 5 was brewed with 60 pounds of wet Chinook and 60 pounds of Citra hops. Extremely floral and aromatic grapefruit notes. Pale yellowish gold with a moderate head and lacing.
