On tap at D&G Pizza and Pub. Pours a semi hazy burnt orange with an inch of frothy head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is malty with light citrus notes. Not much else. The taste is more malts with some tangerine and pine. Sweet lemon as well. Malty finish. Medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Overall, nothing special but decent enough.

Pale ale gonna pale ale, this one is yellow, around 1/2" head on it, white head, average retention, somewhat inconsistent lace to it.

You definitely don't get the big hop bite you do out of most Alpine's. Nice smell that borders equally on grainy. Could say the same for the taste. Expensive in bomber format. A good beer for the outreach.

Look: classic APA, burnt orange, a bit cloudy, 2+ fingers of off-white head.

Smell: some malt, but also lists of citrusy hops, with orange aromas really coming through.

Taste: again, classic APA, but the orange citrus flavors kick thou up a couple of notches.

Feel: bright and tangy, bubbly on the palate.

Overall: if I had regular access to this, it would always be in my beer fridge. A great representation of the APA style.
