On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.

Appearance: Clear red-amber with a durable bone-colored head that leaves a fairly full coating on the glass.

Aroma: Hops (mainly herbal).

Flavor: sweet up front and only modearate bitterness at its peak. Obvious sweet malts balancing a relatively high hop load. The hop flavor builds over time peaking in the aftertaste. Very malty for APA style.

Feel: Light-medium body with near medium carbonation.

O: a bold and hoppy red ale. Recommended.

On Tap

Alpine Beer Company Pub
Alpine, CA

Clear amber and a thin off-white head that leaves dots of stick down the glass.

Simple aroma of bright hops, bready malts, and a hint of success. This doesn't blow me away like some other hop-forward beers brewed by Alpine, though it's still most certainly better than average.

The flavor is simple though complete, with relatively high bitterness for the style leading the way, along with some citrus hop components, bread, and a bit of caramel sweetness.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Clean, crisp, refreshing, disappearing.

This is a big, bitter amber that pairs amazingly well with the pulled pork sandwich and green bean fries at the Alpine Beer Company Pub.

Growler courtesy of yourefragile at last Thursday's mini-tasting. Served in a HopCat tulip.

Pours a clear reddish-amber color with an average white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. Thin cap throughout. The nose brings a moderate amount of bready, caramelized malt plus a good dosing of citrus and pine hops. The flavor is pine hops with a bit of resin atop a base of amber malt and some light sweetness. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Medium body and fairly chewy. Nice offering, though not quite as good as other brews I've had from Alpine.
