Big chill hazed hue of pale gold with a moderate capping of sticky white froth. Great lacing all over the place with thickly set cob webbing sheets.

Aroma is set in a simple balanced tone of toasted citrus. One part orange peel, one part grapefruit peel, two and one half parts toasted grain, a dash of dry grass, a pinch of pine, and half part hop cone. Delightfully clean with a smidgeon of resin always underneath the main recipe.

Taste is quite nice. First thing to notice is it'll make for one fantastic drinkin' pale. Supurb balance of hops and toasted malt all throughout each sip and/or gulp. Flavors aren't overly intense but definately encourageable within the style of an APA. Great perks of citric toned hops bring in a slight parching front of grapefruit. Quickly balanced by one finely set toasty backing of malts and firmly fluffy grainyness. Clean styled bitterness with a wonderful light drying toasty edge and grassy spice ends the fun after each sip and/or gulp for a long, long stay on the palate and memory.

Feel is wonderfully clean and balanced within a solid medium body, if not more. Finishes with fluff and toasty parched citric hops and grasses that never leave the palate. Bitterness is pleasantly easy but always there within its own balance and respectful tone.

Drinkability is bar none, awesome! So clean and balanced with the perfect bitterness and tones to its character. Wow, this stuff is the shit. I absolutely loved this beer. I could drink it all day. Alpine rocks dudes! One of the best Pales I've had. Yum! Seek and drink!

Thanks to KingG for this bottle.

A - Super clean, clear golden colored body with lot of bubbles rising to the surface. Bright white head that is about one finger thick and looks a little like mashed potatoes on the top. Good retention.

S - Lightly citrusy, with big bready malts. Some grassy, earthy hops going on here too.

T - Soft citrusy hops hit the tongue before a wave of smooth bready malts take over. Soft bitter wash comes over my tongue. Everything about this beer is soft and soothing.

M - Medium bodied with smooth soft carbonation.

D - Super easy to drink. Wish it was a little more up front with the hops though
